Israel recently tested its rocket propulsion system at a military base on the Mediterranean coast.
"This morning, Israel conducted a launching test from the Palmachim base of a rocket propulsion system," the Israeli defence ministry said in a brief statement.
"The scheduled test was pre-planned by Israel's ministry of defence and was carried out as expected," it said without elaborating.
The test appeared to be of a version of the Jericho ballistic missile with a range of at least 5,000 kilometres (3,100 miles), easily capable of hitting arch-foe Iran, according to reports.
Israel's Jericho ground-to-ground missile is believed to be capable of carrying a nuclear, chemical or biological warhead. Israel was last believed to have tested its propulsion system in November 2011.
