For the first time, the IDF has released a video of the Magic Wand (Sharvit Ksamim) system shooting down a rocket. The system was successfully tested this week in southern Israel.



The system was built to shoot down long-range missiles with guidance systems. It was developed jointly by Rafael (Israel Military Industries), Elta, Elbit Systems, and the American defense manufacturer Raytheon.
