Is­rael moves to curb strike at nu­clear plant

Muscat Daily - - REGION -

Jerusalem - Is­rael’s gov­ern­ment ap­proved on Sun­day emer­gency mea­sures to end a ‘dis­rup­tive’ months-long strike over pay by sci­en­tists work­ing at the coun­try’s top se­cret nu­clear re­search cen­tre.

Sci­en­tists at the Di­mona Nu­clear Re­search Cen­tre have been on a slow­down strike for the past three months af­ter their de­mand for a wage in­crease was re­fused.

Is­rael is be­lieved to be the Mid­dle East’s sole nu­clear power but has long re­fused to con­firm or deny that it has such weapons, and the Di­mona plant of­fi­cially fo­cuses on re­search and en­ergy pro­vi­sion.
