JERUSALEM - Israel carried out another successful test on Friday of its upgraded Arrow interceptor, which is designed to destroy in space the kind of missiles held by Iran and Syria, a Defense Ministry spokeswoman said.

She said an Arrow III interceptor missile was launched over the Mediterranean sea in the second flight test for the US-backed system. Arrow III, whose deployment is expected by next year, has not yet been through a full simulated interception.
