JERUSALEM (Worthy News)-- Following recent assessments on the significant rocket threat posed by Hezbollah to the Israeli home front, the Defense Ministry said Wednesday that it carried out a successful test of the US-Israel developed David’s Sling anti-missile system, which is designed to shoot down shortto medium-range missiles, the Jerusalem Post reported.

During the trial, carried out this week in central Israel by the Defense Ministry and the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency, David’s Sling radar identified an unarmed Sparrow missile heading into its air space, and fired an interceptor that struck and destroyed the target. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/Israels-US-backed-missile-interceptor-Davids-Sling-passes-advanced-tests-395844" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
