A Israeli court heard yesterday that radioactive material has leaked from the Dimona nuclear reactor several times since it was built, Arab48 reported. This was revealed during a case against the reactor filed by a former worker who is battling cancer. According to the Israeli general radio, the reactor recognised the leaks after workers complained; no further details were given. The complainant, Faridi Taweel, said he was affected by the radioactive materials which leaked from the reactor. “If they acted wisely, I would have known this and would have carried out the needed tests,” Taweel, 56, said.
