Israel Tests Arrow 3 Missile as Possibility of War Looms

The Israeli and US defense ministries launched a test for the new Arrow 3 interception missile on Tuesday morning, after an exchange of fire with Iranian forces in Syria put the region on high alert over the weekend.

The Arrow 3 is the third iteration of a rocket in a joint project with the US, first launched in 1988 as part of the then Star Wars program under late US president Ronald Reagan.
