A new report in the Telegraph says Israel shot down a ballistic missile that was aimed at it, while the weapon was in space.

The report explains the Middle East democracy's famed Arrow missile defense system took out the rocket that had been fired by the Houthi rebels in Yemen, who are backed by Iran, "outside the earth's atmosphere."

The report said it was believed to be the first combat ever to take place in space, and it resulted in the takedown of the bomb launched from Yemen, some 1,000 miles away and heading for the Israeli port city of Eilat.

Few details were released about the intercept, but the Israel Defense Forces released a video, explaining a cruise missile "launched from the southeast toward Israeli airspace was successfully intercepted by F-35I fighter jets."

Then it added, "On the same day, the AIF's Arrow Aerial Defense System intercepted a surface-to-surface missile in the Red Sea area."
