The Defense Ministry releases images and video of its successful test overnight of the Arrow 3 anti-ballistic missile system.

The trial tested a number of “breakthrough” capabilities for the missile defense system, which can be used immediately by the Israeli Air Force, the Defense Ministry’s Missile Defense Organization head Moshe Patel told reporters earlier today.

The live-fire test was held over central Israel in the early hours of this morning, with two Arrow 3 interceptors being fired at the same target.
