An unknown aircraft has unpredictably flown over the Dimona nuclear reactor located in the Negev Desert in southern Palestine, Israel’s second most popular newspaper, Maariv, reported.

The newspaper cited an Israeli official saying that the aircraft changed its course after being warned with “alarm shots”.

The source also explained how the mystery plane deceived the Israeli authorities by heading east and flying over Jordan’s airspace before turning back and entering a No Fly zone in Israel.

According to Flight Radar 24, the plane was flying at an altitude of 16,000 feet, and a speed of 326 knots, which might be an indication that it was gathering intelligence information about the controversial nuclear reactor.
In 2012, the Lebanese Hezbollah sent a spy drone over Dimona reactor but was shot down by an Israeli F-16 jet fighter.

The Negev Nuclear Research Center is located in the Negev Desert nearly 13 km south east of the city of Dimona. Although Israel claims it uses the center for nuclear research purposes, it’s widely believed to be actually used to produce nuclear weapons.
