Israel says Arrow-3 anti-missile system passed live test in U.S.

JERUSALEM, July 28 (Reuters) - Israel's U.S.-backed Arrow-3 air defence system, billed as a bullwark against the ballistic missiles fielded by Iran and Syria, has passed a live interception test in Alaska, the Israeli Defence Ministry said on Sunday.

Jointly manufactured by Boeing Co, Arrow-3 is billed as capable of destroying missiles in space, an altitude that would destroy any non-conventional warheads safely. It passed the first full interception test over the Mediterranean sea in 2015 and was deployed in Israel in 2017.
