Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Friday praised all those that took part in the successful Arrow missile defense system test Friday morning.

At 11 a.m., an F-15 Israel Air Force (IAF) fighter jet launched a Blue Sparrow, a missile developed by Raphael to impersonate long-range Iranian ballistic missiles.
   
"This is an important technological achievement and an important step in Israel's progress in the field of defense... the successful test demonstrated again the high technical capabilities of engineers, technicians and employees of the Israeli security industry that participated in the test," said Barak.
