Israel recently carried out a series of test detonations to measure the damage that would be caused by a so-called “dirty” radiological bomb, if it were set off by hostile forces, according to the left-wing Haaretz newspaper.

A “dirty bomb” does not require mastery of nuclear bomb production, but uses conventional explosives together with radioactive material. It can therefore more easily be acquired and deployed by non-state actors like terror groups.

According to Haaretz, most the of the detonations were carried out in the desert, with participation of a team from the Dimona nuclear facility, and one was performed at a closed facility.

Some will say this is all done in the name of "self-defense", while others will say Israel has sinister plans. Israel has yet to sign the Non-proliferation of nuclear weapons agreement( NPT) but carries out tests on dirty bombs to get an idea of how it would be like to detonate a dirty bomb and prepare for it. I do not think that if

EDIT: phone crashed on me while posting.

I do not think that if you want to find out and prepare for the effects of a dirty bomb, you need to detonate them more than a dozen time.

No doubt the next step will be to test these against Palestinians, you know like they usually do

We live in a world that could end at the few presses of a few buttons. At this point I'm no longer scathed by the idea of any country testing weapons for the purpose of testing them. (While the world as we know it would end, the world would of course persevere. However life as we know it, would not.)

It's a shame that countries feel the need to do this, however.. But that's the world we live in.

I am surprised they couldn't have worked the answer out for themselves.

However is the west clean-minded when it comes to bombs, surely uranium tipped weaponry was used in Iraq and now there they have as much cancer as common colds in some areas.

The only reason the U.S. hasn't tested similarly is the PR flap that would result-if, in fact, they haven't...
.

Anyone betting the DHS didn't have an observer/advisor present during that test?

I'd take that bet. The only time Israel wants our government in their nation is when members of congress is kissing their butts for points back home and when members of the military is showing them how to use equipment we sale/ give them. And other time it's you don't belong here.

Israel manufactured and detonated “dirty bombs” in the Negev desert, which is home to a large number of Bedouin Palestinians.



During project Green Field, 20 detonations were completed, then radiation levels were measured via mini-drones and the force of the blasts was logged with sensors, the reported added.


The above is technically scorched land, in my opinion.

The following could be, and I'm going to get in conspiracy now, preparations to false flag attack in...US maybe?


Another project dubbed Red House was also carried out to examine the result of placing radioactive substances without detonating them in crowded areas, the report said.

According to the article, radioactive material was mixed with water and placed in the ventilation system of a structure that simulated a large crowded shopping center.

If this is true, then there is an irreversible area of contamination for the next decade or so. As crazy as Israel is, I don't think they are that crazy to test "dirty bombs" at all. Radiation detectors across the globe would be going off.

First of all , a "dirty bomb" (briefcase nuke) is a very low yield device.It is not meant to cause destruction as a full nuclear weapon . The way it works is to use standard explosives to scatter radiation into the air to attack a city's or nation's morale. More of a shock and awe weapon than a truly destructive one.

And as for tests , they could have used any matter (including dirt) that could become airborne particles to simulate these.It does not have to be radioactive at all.

Nukes within a year? ISIS magazine boasts they can be bought in Pakistan



The article suggests that "drug shipments from Columbia bound for Europe pass through West Africa, so moving other types of contraband from East to West is just as possible."

The device would land on the south shores of South America and make its way to Mexico, from where "it’s just a quick hop through a smuggling tunnel" to the US. The chilling conclusion is that in the end, "they’re mingling with another 12 million 'illegal' aliens in America with a nuclear bomb in the trunk of their car."


The test's already went on by the "supporting team".

that is a really bad description of one, and an incorrect one as well. A dirty bomb is a nuclear package that contains the radioactivity of a nuke, but not the bang. Putting radioactive materials next to a stick of dynamite (as you describe) does nothing if the reaction doesn't happen. In that case all you did was blow up a suitcase. It is really unlikely Israel would do such tests because A. it would confirm they have nuclear weapons, and B. would be picked up by the global community.

RT picking the story up from ATS doesn't count by the way, I've already seen that article, they got the info and sources from here.

Of course the US has dirty bombs. These are to be used to depopulate China but not destroy it's infrastructure. And then there are the munitions of the Warthog A10 which used depleted Uranium which has poisoned the civilian population of Iraq and will remain toxic for millions of years. a reply to: Boeing777

Simple steps for turning every piece of information that you consume into anti Israeli/Jew/Mosad/Zionist rant:

1. Dismiss all Israeli sources of information as biased and corrupt.

2. If you see an Israeli source that is actually fits your agenda - trust it blindly, and stuff it in your opponents face while screaming: "Look! the Israeli media said so".

3. If only the title of the report fits your agenda - Great! Now you can start your usual whining and crying about the evil Zionists without actually addressing the report.

This is the actual report.


Google translate:
Israel conducted a series of experiments to test the effects and damage of using a radiological bomb, including radioactive materials, as part of a project called "Green Field" carried out for four years by researchers at the Dimona reactor. According to scientists in the study, experiments were designed for defense purposes and not dealt with the possibility of this type of weapons used for assault purposes.

The fear of terrorist organizations using radiological bombs, also known as "dirty bombs", came in the wake of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Al Qaeda threatened to attack the United States these chargers, next to explosives include radioactive materials in medicine and industry available , adding dangerous radiation. However, the threat never materialized and so far there has been no such attack against Western targets.

Israel prepared for the possibility of the use of radiological materials, and in 2006 the Health Ministry issued a procedure for handling cases of a radiological attack. Home Front Command website also contains guidance on how to proceed in these cases. In 2013 he warned Defense Minister Moshe (Bogie) Ya'alon meeting in Canada that "Iranians want a nuclear umbrella to have, to promote terrorist activities, and for example use of a dirty bomb Western targets around the world. So must not be tolerant to the possibility of a nuclear Iran. So, in this way or otherwise, the nuclear-military project in Iran must be stopped ".
In 2010 experiments began to be made at the Dimona reactor designed to examine the implications of a radiological bomb attack on Israel. The project, known as the "green field", ended in 2014 and his conclusions were published in scientific conferences and databases of nuclear scientists.

As part of the experiments 20 explosive devices, weighing between half a pound to 55 pounds, combined with widespread radioactive material "Technetium-99m", used in the medical industry for the purpose of medical imaging, were activated. As part of the experiments was done using the best innovative technology of the reactor, including Mikro-drones for radiation measurement and sensors for measuring the intensity of the blast. Most of the explosions were made in the desert, and one of the experiments carried out in a closed facility.

Experiments showed that radiation measured at ground zero, high intensity, plus a small amount of radiation is spread through wind-borne particles.

The research concludes that most of these bombs danger in relation to ordinary cargo is their psychological effect on the public. Another concern is the explosion in a radiological place, which will require to close the place for a long time to purge.

The project became another experiment, called "Red House", designed to test a scenario where radiological material is placed in a crowded place, but no explosion.

In the experiment, conducted in cooperation with the Home Front Command, radiological material dissolved in water was dispersed in the ventilation system of a two-story structure at the base of the Home Front Command, which simulates Mall. The study's conclusions show that this method is not effective, and most of the radiation stays on the air conditioner filters.

WRONG!!!!

Dirty bomb, technical name is RDD radiation dispersal device, uses conventional explosives to scatter radioactive materials

It is designed to contaminate an area

It is not a nuclear weapon as there is not nuclear reaction
