Israel used it’s David Sling interceptor system for the first time on Monday, firing two missiles against SS-21 Tochka tactical ballistic missiles launched from Syria as part of the internal fighting in the war-torn country.

The SS-21 ballistic missiles, which carry a half-ton warhead, were detected by Israel’s aerial defense system when they were fired from south-eastern Syria, and the decision to intercept them was made by the IDF when it was believed that their trajectory would see them fall near the Kinneret in northern Israel.
