Israel has put a confidential list of secret security measures in place following the baffling disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines plane.

Experts fear that the missing plane could become a weapon of mass destruction if in the wrong hands.

According to Fox News, one of several theories that has emerged is that the plane was hijacked to Iran, where it could be turned into a massive and devastating weapon.

Issac Yeffet, formerly a global security expert for Israel's national airline El Al told today's Times of Israel, said that Iran was involved in the disappearance of the plane, adding that they hijacked the aircraft and landed it in a place that nobody can see or find it.

Israeli security officials and aviation authorities, who have long feared a 9/11-style attack, conducted a security assessment and implemented a series of security measures, the report added.
