Satellite images show the significant expansion of infrastructure at Israel’s highly-secretive Dimona nuclear facility in the Negev Desert.
The International Panel on Fissile Material (IPFM) claimed on February 18 that that “significant new construction” had been underway at the Dimona complex. The detected construction is located “in the immediate vicinity of the buildings that house the nuclear reactor and the reprocessing plant,” the report said.
The report said the construction had “expanded and appears to be actively underway with multiple construction vehicles present.”
However, that the purpose was not known. Iranian sources specualte that the Dimona facility is linked to Israeli nuclear weapon program.
