Israel Claims Successful Test of Long-Range Missile Shield

Israel says it has successfully tested a ballistic missile shield for protection from long-range weapons held by Hezbollah, Iran and Syria. The Defense Ministry said Thursday that the Arrow 3 system fully passed its interception test, hitting a target in space as it would a missile coming from a hostile party. Zlatica Hoke reports Israel's military success comes at a time of escalating tensions in the region.
