U.S. says deployed THAAD missile defense system to Israel  

The U.S. military has deployed an advanced missile defense system to Israel, a spokeswoman for the U.S. European Command said on Monday, Reuters reported. 

The move was intended to test the U.S. military’s ability to rapidly deploy such weapons around the world, said the spokeswoman.

Citing security reasons, she declined to say how long it took to move the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system, which is built by Lockheed Martin and Raytheon to Israel.
