That looks more like a desert than a dessert.

Would I rather have a cross for Dessert,
or cross a desert
...Hmmmm, Interesting cross in the desert
SInce it is in Israel in the desert by a border, Look closely and you can see markings in the sand where maybe a portablr building or armament was parked and dug in.
I think it may be a deserted airfield and the winds of time have blown sand over it

Seems to be either the beginning of some project or the abandoned project.

There are channels dug where possible columns for building are marked.

Three parking slots could have been planned and marked.

But surprising thing is that there are no roads or trackmarks from where the digging equipment was brought.

So it is more likely an abandoned project lying idle for a few years.

I think it's an airfield training target.
