A rocket test was conducted in central Israel Monday morning to assess the performance of a new rocket propulsion system.

Defense Ministry officials confirmed reports of the rocket’s launch over central Israel, saying the firing was part of a test planned in advance, and not a defensive action involving the Iron Dome missile defense system.

No additional details on the nature of the test or rocket system being tested were released by the Defense Ministry Monday.
