Tel Aviv: Israel has conducted a successful sea-to-sea missile system test, the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) announced on Friday.
The IDF issued a statement that the new system was intended to "ensure Israel's continued naval superiority", reports Xinhua news agency.
It may be recalled that Israel's strong rival in the Middle East, Iran had revealed a month ago its Abu-Mahdi long-range cruise missiles for its navy.According to the statement, the new Israeli missile system has precision capabilities with a longer range and expanded offensive options.
A series of tests included firing a missile at a dummy target vessel.
The system is expected to be integrated in the coming months into the Israeli navy flotilla.
