Note: Algerian people use arab, but for historical reasons, most people speak French although they do not necessarily write it. The witness thus wrote in phonetic French, and I rendered it in readable English. The original is of course in the French version of this page.
I looked at this website about UFOs, and I read all these testimonies ,and I hesitated initially but I really want to tell and get this out of my chest,that thing completely changed my life,and here's my story:I was in the Army,and on July 28, 1998 at 01:00 a.m. in a city called tindouf in the Algerian Sahara,and at 05 km from the city I was with a buddy and all of a sudden a light came at us,we were very frightened thinking our chief had thought we were going to town awol and that's why we hid behind a sand dune and the light approached just in front of us at almost 4.5 m and it was like in the science-fiction movie:oh my god the larger one was magnificent:a ufo of almost 09 meters with two lights one at the front and one at the back, and the latter light wasn't like the others, it goes straight down and it was squared that light and between the two lights windows with dark lights,we do hear its engine noise it's like the sound of a simple air conditioning fan,and it had two other lights one at the top and the other at the bottom and it was magnificent,it was 1.5m above the ground and this height there was no doubt it was a UFO.
Then we fled and while looking back at almost 30 meters and there was a full moon so there was a good visibility, I saw that the ufo had stopped in front of a dune and I saw a thing that came out of it, it was skinny and I did not see it very well but the most certain thing is that it had a small bump on its head,at this time I run away with my buddy as far as possible. and that's my story I never told it to anybody and my buddy didn't tell it,maybe we thought that if we tell this people would certainly think we're crazy,and if you need more details please write,thanks.
