New IDF system intercepts missile
On Tuesday the IDF's new "Trophy-Windbreaker" system intercepted a Gaza terrorist anti-tank missile for the first time. The system is designed to actively protect against anti-tank missiles, and it identified and intercepted the missile.
The IDF stressed that this is an unprecedented and historical event in Israel's Armored Corps and around the world. Above all this is also "a change in the equation in the southern sector and in the northern sector against the Hezbollah's anti-tank threat".
