Israel prepares for Hezbollah dirty bomb strike

This month Israel carried out a secret radiological, or dirty, weapon drill in Jerusalem run by the Defense Ministry and police. The fact that the drill has taken place now indicates that Israeli authorities believe there is an imminent threat that a dirty (radiological) bomb could be smuggled into the country.  

It is highly probable that Israeli security authorities and intelligence think the source of a radiological weapon would be Iran.

In 1995, a radiological bomb was found buried in Izmailovsky Park in Moscow. The bomb combined traditional explosives and Caesium-137 scrap material. A second radiological weapon, this time made of a land mine and Caesium-137, was found in 1998 by Chechen security.
