The U.S. missile defence system has failed to repel a medium-range ballistic missile. The missile defence system was used to intercept a ballistic missile from a U.S. warship on Saturday (May 29) at local time. But the US forces did not succeed.
According to a report on Radio Tehran, the US Missile Defense Systems Agency (MDA) said in a statement that the test was carried out with the aim of identifying ballistic missile defence from warships, chasing after them and intercepting medium-range ballistic missiles. But the missile could not be resisted with this measure. However, the exact reason why this test failed, he was not informed about it.
The test was conducted last Saturday in the Pacific Ocean near the Hawaiian Islands.
Officials involved in the project are investigating the cause of the test failure, the statement said.
Incidentally, the United States has long suffered from a variety of complexities with its missile defense system. The country is believed to be lagging behind Russia in this regard. The failure of the latest test is expected to prolong the ongoing crisis in the US missile defense system.
