Several tests of the rocket propulsion system have been conducted in the past from the Palmachim Airbase in central Israel on the Mediterranean coast. In January 2020, a similar test was conducted, as well as one a month earlier. Following that test in January four years ago, aircraft movements from Ben Gurion Airport were diverted.
