JERUSALEM (AP): Israel has said that it has successfully tested an upgraded radar for the Arrow missile defence system, developed with the United States and designed to intercept projectiles that might be fired at the Jewish state from Iran.

Defence official Yair Ramati said the test was conducted Friday in conjunction with the US Missile Defense Agency.

The purpose of the test was to validate the system's improved radar, he said.

The official said a Blue Sparrow 2 missile was fired west to east from "deep within the Mediterranean" but he would not say how far from Israel it was fired or what sort of threat it was designed to simulate.

A defense ministry statement said the Blue Sparrow was "representative of potential ballistic missile threats facing Israel."
