“The Israeli Air Force shot down an unidentified flying object over the Dimona nuclear plant in the Negev Desert Thursday, the Israel Defense Forces said.
The object appeared in a designated no-fly zone, the air force was scrambled and the object was shot down, the IDF said.
The object could have been a party balloon, the IDF said, but forces have not yet found the debris to determine what it was.
There have been unconfirmed media reports that it was a motor-driven object. The air force reacted according to procedure when the object was spotted, the IDF said.” CNN
Israel National News (INN) noted that the object entered Israeli airspace from Jordan, from the southern Dead Sea.
The Israelis can`t afford to take any chances; they are surrounded by implacable enemies.
If an alien race seeks to make peaceful contact with Earthlings, I`d suggest he stay the hell away from Israeli air space.
