Israel's Latest Missile Defense

Arrow # missile defense (Israel Defense Ministry)

Israel has made a name for herself with state-of-the-art defense technologies, including the lifesaving Iron Dome defense system. After successful tests earlier this week, carried out together with the U.S. Missile Defense Agency, Israel may soon have a new tool to protect her citizens: the Arrow 3 long-range missile defense system

Complemented by a number of other missile defense systems designed to protect Israel from short-, medium- and long-range attacks, the Arrow 3 system, which was declared operational last January, represents the highest level of Israel’s multi-tiered missile defense network.

The system, which was developed in a joint Israeli-American program, is designed to shoot down intercontinental ballistic missiles outside the atmosphere, taking out projectiles and their nuclear, biological, chemical or conventional warheads closer to their launch sites. It is a more advanced version of the Arrow and Arrow 2 systems.

The Arrow 3 is considered to be one of the most powerful weapons of its kind in the world and has been in development for nearly a decade, starting in 2008.

Join us in continuing to pray for the safety of Israel and her people!
