Shoot Down At Dimona


Hmmm, I wonder who this UFO belonged to?

Israeli jet downs flying object near nuclear plant

An Israeli warplane has shot down a “suspicious object” flying over the southern part of the Dead Sea, the military said, adding that the intruder appeared to have been a balloon.

The country’s main nuclear reactor is about 30 kilometres from the Dead Sea, at Dimona in the Negev desert.

“Air force planes were scrambled after a suspicious object was seen,” a military spokeswoman told AFP yesterday. “It was shot down.” She did not elaborate.

Local news site Ynet said one of the planes fired a missile at the object “which was hovering close to the nuclear research institute at Dimona.”

An unmanned, motorized balloon? Apparently, someone wanted a closer look at Dimona than Google Earth provides.

/my guess would be Hezbollah gathering intelligence to range a rocket attack on the reactor but, then again, the IDF hasn’t found the wreckage yet to determine exactly what it was
