A suspect broke into the Nevatim Air Base in the northern Negev Desert on Monday night, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said in a statement on Tuesday.

The suspect drove through an open gate into the base, abandoned the car later and took off on foot.

While the search in coordination between air force, ground defense units and police was ongoing, the suspect “climbed two barbed wire fences and a five-meter-high (16-foot) fence, and left the base.”

“The event will be investigated and the necessary lessons will be learned,” the IDF statement added.

The airbase is home to Israel’s fleet of F-35 fighter jets, and other advanced aircraft.
