A Palestinian captured with a bomb belt sneaking out of the Gaza Strip last month told interrogators his target was the nuclear reactor in Dimona, security sources revealed Monday. The man, Ramiz Abdel Rahman Jabber Salah of the Jebaliya refugee camp, was a member of the Al Aksa Martyr's Brigade and had been recruited with others who were to stage simultaneous bombings in various sites, such as the Ashdod central bus station. Salah himself was captured on December 19 near the security fence surrounding the Gaza Strip next to Kibbutz Nirim.
