Israel used its Arrow-3 missile defense system for the first time on Thursday night after Israeli jets were targeted with Syrian anti-aircraft missiles during an operation over Syria.

In a rare confirmation of Israel carrying out airstrikes in Syria, the IDF said on Friday morning that “several anti-aircraft missiles were launched from Syria during the operation. One of the missiles was intercepted by the air defense systems of the IDF.”
