The successful launch of the missile interceptor, which the ministry claimed to be the first of its kind conducted at sea, represents “a significant milestone” in the development of a missile defense system that would play a key role in the protection of Israel’s exclusive economic zones, the military said.

The interceptor system, called Barak, includes advanced radar, a weapon system, and a long-range interceptor. It is designed to deal with a wide range of aerial threats, including fighters, drones, cruise missiles, surface-to-surface missiles and rockets, and anti-ship missiles.
