The Rapture Report - Israel successfully tests shield against Iran missiles

Israel successfully tests shield against Iran missiles
Written: 2-26-2013
By: Israel Today Staff

Israel on Monday celebrated the successful test of its new Arrow 3 anti-ballistic missile system. The Arrow 3 is being jointly developed with the American Defense Department, and US officials were said to be shocked that the Israeli-built system lodged a perfect score on its very first test.

The Arrow 3 is capable of reaching the upper atmosphere and intercepting long-range ballistic missiles long before they have a chance to strike Israel. It is primarily seen as a shield against an Iranian missile threat.

While the existing Arrow anti-missile system is a highly praised and effective defense, the Arrow 3 will enable Israel to destroy non-conventional enemy warhead at such an altitude that any biological, chemical or nuclear material would disintegrate safely before reaching earth.

The Arrow 3 "demonstrates the State of Israel's high technological capability, the State of Israel's high defense capability … and our cooperation with the US," said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who stressed that "Israel's hand is always extended in peace, but we are also always prepared for other possibilities."

Israeli media noted that the Arrow 3 will not be fully operations for another three years.
