The IDF on Wednesday received the operational Arrow-3 anti-ballistic missile interceptor, in a move that the Defense Ministry described as bringing the military into a "new era" of missile defense.

In a formal ceremony on Wednesday morning, the ministry's Israel Missile Defense Organization (IMDO) division transferred the operational system to the IDF.

"The Arrow-3 development program, one of the joint programs between Israel and the United States, was exceptionally co-managed by the US Missile Defense Agency and IMDO," the ministry said in a statement.
