(Worthy News) – The US military shot down a medium-range ballistic missile during a test off Hawaii late Tuesday, officials said.
The Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai Island launched the target missile, while sailors aboard the destroyer USS John Paul Jones tracked it with radar and fired an interceptor missile to shoot it down.
The test comes amid North Korea’s ballistic missile tests and rising tensions between the US and the North.
