According to Negev subdistrict police, security guards at the Dimona core stopped the car and called police, after it was “being driven in a suspicious manner” near the gate of the facility.


The driver, in his forties, is from Kuseifa.

Police said early Thursday they suspect the body is that of a woman who went missing earlier in the week, adding that the driver of the car is a relative of the missing woman.
