Former Israeli space security chief Haim Eshed recently told the Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot that the U.S. and Israel have been working with the “Galactic Federation” of aliens in recent year — but humanity isn’t ready to know about it.

  • “The Unidentified Flying Objects have asked not to publish that they are here, humanity is not ready yet,” he said.
  • Parts of the interview were published in English by the Jerusalem Post on Tuesday, according to NBC News.

What’s going on?

Eshed, who led the Israel space security program for nearly 30 years, said the U.S. and Israel have been working with the Galactic Federation to create an underground base on Mars, Newsweek reports.

  • “There is an agreement between the U.S. government and the aliens. They signed a contract with us to do experiments here,” he said.

Eshed said President Donald Trump knows about the deal with aliens and he almost revealed the truth to the country. However, the federation wouldn’t allow Trump to speak about the aliens because it would have caused mass hysteria, according to Newsweek.

  • “They have been waiting until today for humanity to develop and reach a stage where we will understand, in general, what space and spaceships are,” Eshed said of the federation, according to NBC News.
