US deploys THAAD missile defence in Israel for exercise

The US has deployed its advanced THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) missile defense system temporarily to Israel for a joint military exercise. It is the first such exercise in Israel, although the two allies hold regular joint war games. THAAD is capable of destroying short, medium and intermediate-range missiles.
