China has conducted a rare anti-ballistic missile test on Friday, Bloomberg is reporting based on China’s defense ministry, which has been hailed as successful.

It’s being described as a land-based, mid-course antiballistic missile technical test, which was of a "defensive nature" and didn’t target any country, according to the military statement.

"It’s the fourth such test China has successfully conducted since 2018, according to a search on the ministry’s website," Bloomberg writes, noting further that the last such ballistic missile test was in June 2022.

China is meanwhile blaming rising tensions on the Korean peninsula on the "negative impact" of US military drills with the south.
