Missile Lands Near ‘Israeli’ Military Nuclear Facility Dimona
By Staff, Agencies
The ‘Israeli’ military claimed a Syrian missile fired towards an ‘Israeli’ warplane has overflown its target, landing near the occupying regime’s top-secret military nuclear facility Dimona.
An ‘Israeli’ military spokesman cited by Reuters said the projectile had come down in the early hours of Thursday in the Dimona area in the Negev desert inside the occupying territories, where the Zionist regime operates the hugely controversial installation.
The spokesman identified the missile as “an SA-5”, a long-range projectile handled by Syria’s Russian S-200 missile systems.
The missile, however, “did not hit the reactor, landing some 30 kilometers away,” the agency cited the spokesman as saying.
According to the ‘Israeli’ military, missile sirens went off in the area, and a Reuters correspondent, who was about 90 kilometers north of Dimona, reported hearing the sound of an explosion minutes before the military tweeted that the alarms had gone off.
