This is the Negev Nuclear Research centre in Israel (which doesn't exist) 10 miles south of Dimona ..more pictures at Cryptome here is a technical analysis of recent satellite imagery of the site.Including US Patriot missiles gurading site that doesn't exist.
Israeli scientists and politicians have called for the closure of the 40-year-old Dimona plant, saying its age had increased the risk of accidents.In August 2004 Iodine tabelts were issued locally after a safety scare.
In August last year the Deputy CEO of the site said publicly there were no safety problems at the site.
Israel has never publicly acknowledged that it maintains a nuclear arsenal but foreign experts say it has used its reactor at Dimona to produce between 100 and 200 nuclear warheads.

PS : Stories tht Ms Dati whose heart has been broken and is immoveably fixed in the Muslim Mahgreb is going round telling people that French engineers (they built the original reactor) are working on repairs - and that Sarkozy has authorised discussions for re-supply are, mischievous, without foundation, baseless, lies, etc., etc.,
