Defense: Israel tests high-tech missile defense system

Today's Zaman reports Israel has successfully tested a high-tech system designed to protect civilians from rocket attacks by “militant” groups in Gaza and south Lebanon, the Defense Ministry said.

Defense officials said on Friday in the wake of the test that the Iron Dome system’s development is on schedule and will likely meet its target date of 2010, when it is due to begin shooting down incoming rockets fired by Gaza militants.
