The United States and Israel effectively completed “a high height hit-to-kill commitment” with a co-created ballistic missile destroying rocket interceptor framework in Alaska, authorities reported Sunday.
The Arrow-3 Interceptor rocket accomplished a “noteworthy achievement” in its improvement during a fruitful flight test where the framework adequately captured a rocket focus outside the climate, the U.S. Rocket Defense Agency (MDA) said in an announcement.

“This special accomplishment in Alaska gives trust in future Israeli abilities to overcome the creating dangers in the locale,” MDA Director Vice Adm. Jon Hill said in the announcement. “We are focused on helping the Government of Israel in overhauling its national rocket guard capacity to safeguard the State of Israel from developing dangers.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at a Cabinet meeting Sunday that the Arrow 3 gives his nation the “capacity to act against ballistic rockets terminated against us from Iran and from some other area.”
