Palestinian Terrorists Gunning For Israeli Nuclear Facilities

A Gaza Strip man admitted that he and other terrorists planned to blow themselves up in simultaneous attacks at Israel's nuclear reactor and other sites, it was disclosed yesterday.
Ramzi Salah, 22, was caught about two weeks ago — wearing a bomb belt — near the Negev Desert kibbutz of Nir-Am, officials said.

In his confession, withheld until a court appearance yesterday in Beersheva, Salah said he intended to carry out a homicide-bomb attack in the Israeli city of Ashkelon.

But Salah, of Jabaliya, added that other members of the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade planned to blow themselves up at the heavily-guarded nuclear reactor at Dimona.
Don't think for a moment that the danger has passed since these individuals were captured. There are more terrorists from where this bunch came from. Of course, the danger from these suicide bombers affects not just the material structures themselves, but those that work at the facilities. Killing the scientists who operate and manage the Israeli nuclear program would be a significant hit against Israel's strategic capabilities.
