Israel will soon try to intercept a live missile during another test of its Arrow defense system, Defense Minister Yitzhak Mordechai said. His comment came a day after Israel’s Arrow-2 missile destroyed a simulated target during the first comprehensive test of the missile’s launch, radar and firing systems. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suggested Israel would share the Arrow technology with other nations under threat of attack by militant Islamic states. “We must give the peace nations of the world the means to defend themselves,” he said.
