Initial signs of radiation from the Japanese Fukushima plant have reached Israel, according to a test which was held at the Sorek Nuclear Research Center on Tuesday.

Atomic energy experts analyzed the gathered data and have said that the radiation is harmless to human health and the environment, even with prolonged exposure to the minute radioactive particles.

At this point, the public has not been requested to take any action, the experts added.
