The Israeli military removed remnants of another intercepted Iranian ballistic missile found by hikers at the Ye’elim stream, close to Arad, in southern Israel.

The missile was one of 120 fired at Israel in the Iranian attack on April 14.

The remnants were lifted out of the area by crane and moved to another location, where the Fire and Rescue Services removed any hazardous materials.

After it was deemed safe, the remnants were taken to an army base to be further examined.
