Israeli and US successfully tested ‘Arrow 3’ ballistic missile interceptors

  • The Israeli and US defence ministries on January 22, 2019 announced that, they have successfully tested ballistic missile interceptors ‘Arrow 3’ deployed at Israeli airbases.
  • The tests came a day after the latest deadly exchange of fire between Israel and Iranian forces operating in Syria. 
  • The Arrow 3 interceptor system, designed to shoot down missiles above the atmosphere, was deployed at air force bases across Israel two years ago. 
  • Arrow 3, launched toward the target and successfully completed its mission, is intended to serve as Israel’s highest-altitude missile interception system.
  • With this, Israel has vowed to prevent Iran from entrenching itself in neighbouring Syria. Israel’s Arrow system has been partly financed by the United States.
