Security forces successfully tested the 'Arrow' anti-missile defense system on Monday.

While the experiment, which tested the electronics systems of the missile, wasn't as complex as the test that was carried out a month and a half ago, security forces said that it is an important step in the development of the system.

In the test that took place a month and a half ago, the Arrow system succeeded in intercepting a test target that simulated the warhead of a long-range Iranian surface-to-surface Shihab-3 missile.

Air Defense Commander Brigadier General Danny Milo said after the last test "we have taken another technological jump that is based on the most realistic and relevant threats we can simulate. This is not a theoretical test."
