On the heels of the success of the Iron Dome system, Israel successfully tested a new missile defense system in the Negev.

Dubbed David’s Sling, after the weapon used in the Biblical story of David and Goliath, the system is being developed jointly between the Israeli and American defense firms Rafael and Raytheon. It is designed to intercept medium to long-range missile between 70 and 300 kilometers—likely to be primarily launched from Lebanon-based terror group Hezbollah, Syria and Iran.

The Israeli missile defense system Iron Dome will eventually be joined by David's Sling. IDF
