Israel successfully tests missile defence system

Israel says it has successfully tested an upgraded radar for the Arrow missile defence system.



Jerusalem: Israel says it has successfully
tested an upgraded radar for the Arrow missile defence system,
developed with the United States and designed to intercept
projectiles that might be fired at the Jewish state from Iran.

Defence official Yair Ramati says the test was conducted
today in conjunction with the US Missile Defense Agency.

He says the purpose of the test was to validate the
system`s improved radar.

He said a Blue Sparrow 2 missile was fired west to east
from "deep within the Mediterranean" but he would not say how
far from Israel it was fired or what sort of threat it was
designed to simulate.

A defense ministry statement says the Blue Sparrow was
"representative of potential ballistic missile threats facing
Israel."
