Israel carries out Arrow missile interceptor test-official

JERUSALEM, Feb 25 (Reuters) - Israel carried out a successful test of its upgraded Arrow missile interceptor on Monday, an Israeli official said.

The U.S.-backed Arrow missile is designed to shoot down incoming ballistic missiles at altitudes high enough to allow for any non-conventional warheads to disintegrate safely. (Reporting by Dan Williams; editing by Crispian Balmer)
