nuclear reactor

The Dimona reactor, which began its life in 1963, is one of Israel’s most closely guarded secret installations.

A study made public last year found more than 1500 fissures within the reactor core.

Israel is estimated to have more than 100 nuclear warheads, the plutonium for which comes from its Dimona reactor.




On Sunday, the Nobel Peace Prize will be handed to the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons at a ceremony in Oslo.
