Israel Shoots Down the First Missile in Space

Spread the love


Israel has just made an important step in warfare. Their Arrow missile-defense system has shot down a ballistic missile outside of Earth’s atmosphere, which is the first time warfare has taken place in space. This was an Iranian missile launched from Yemen by the Iran-backed Houthis, who have declared war on Israel.  This missile traveled out of the Earth’s atmosphere in hopes of avoiding all radar, and this would be a surprise attack. This flew nearly 1000 miles (1600km) over the Arabian peninsula outside the atmosphere and would then turn down targeting the Israeli port city of Eilat.

This was not one of those propaganda stories from Ukraine how they shot down six unstoppable Russian missiles in a single day. Nothing that comes from Ukraine is ever trustworthy, and certainly not from the Institute for the Study of War – Victoria Nuland’s sister-in-law who always says Russia is about to collapse..

This is the first missile to be shot down outside the atmosphere and has ushered in a new level of warfare.
