IAF jets scramble as plane flies over Israeli nuclear facility

Israel Air Force fighter jets on Tuesday scrambled against an ultralight plane en route to an air show in the southern city of Arad, after it breached the airspace of the nuclear reactor facility in Dimona.

The pilot reportedly strayed from his planned route, flying from Rishon Letzion in central Israel to Arad near the Dead Sea, and inadvertently entered the reactor's airspace.  Realizing his error, the pilot then called in by radio that he had lost his way and was instructed to land in Arad, where he was questioned by local police.


TVNL Comment: Why is Israel allowed to produce nuclear material without UN inspection?  Just asking.
