David's Sling is a medium range missile defense system.  It has been operational in Israel since 2017. 

David's Sling is proposed to defend against rockets and missiles with a range of 40-250 km, like Hizballah's longest range weapons: the Iranian Zelzal, the Fajr, and the Fatah 110, as well as extended range Katyushas.
