It is the last month of this God-awful year and there have been enough jokes about aliens being the last surprise 2020 has in store for us. Turns out, we weren’t wrong.

Former Israeli space security chief has claimed that aliens and American astronauts have signed an agreement. He also said that Donald Trump knows about it. 

In an interview with Israel’s Yediot Aharonot newspaper, Haim Eshed, who is the former head of Israel’s Defense Ministry’s space directorate, said that Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) have told the astronauts to not discuss their presence as mankind is not ready yet. Parts of the Hebrew language interview were published in English by the Jerusalem Post.

Eshed is a respected professor and retired general; he was the head of Israel’s space security programme for almost three decades. According to his statements, aliens are as curious about as us as we are about them and want to understand “the fabric of the universe.”

He also said that cooperation agreements were signed between the extra-terrestrial beings and American astronauts.

The 87-year-old claimed that aliens have been in contact with the US government for years now. “There is an agreement between the US government and the aliens. They signed a contract with us to do experiments here,” he said.

He also stated that Donald Trump almost revealed their existence but was stopped by the ‘Galactic Federation’. 

Eshed explained that aliens believe that human beings need to reach a stand where they can understand what space and spaceships are to find out about the existence of extra-terrestrial beings. He also mentioned why he chose to reveal this information now and not before. He said, “If I had come up with what I’m saying today five years ago, I would have been hospitalised.”

“Today, they’re already talking differently. I have nothing to lose. I’ve received my degrees and awards; I am respected in universities abroad, where the trend is also changing,” he added.  

Eshed has written a book, ‘The Universe Beyond the Horizon – conversations with Professor Haim Eshed,’ in which he reveals more details about how aliens have prevented nuclear apocalypses and “when we can jump in and visit the Men in Black.”

In reaction to the Israeli scientist’s claims, British journalist Nick Pope, who investigated UFOs for a now-defunct British Ministry of Defence division said either this is a practical joke or a publicity stunt to boost the sales of his book.
