attacks on Iranian nuclear programme ; the inside story.

12 Jan

Yesterday, another Iranian nuclear scientist was killed in a car bombing in Tehran.
Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan was the latest victim of a series of attacks on some of the key players of Iranian nuclear programme. The attack came around the second anniversary of the death of another scientist. Masood Ali Mohammadi was blown up outside his home by a remote controlled bomb which was planted on a motorcycle parked outside his apartment. Besides these two prominent and high value target killings, a number of similar attacks have been carried out in the recent past aiming at sabotaging Iranian nuclear programmes.
Mostafa was a prominent part of the famous Natanz enrichment facility and was working on an important project. The assassination of such an important scientist would seriously cripple the Iranian nuclear programme.

Although no one has claimed a responsibility, the modus operandi is pointing it’s finger towards the Israel.
Israeli intelligence agency, The Mossad, in the past has carried out such attacks, like the systematic killings of terrorists responsible of black september killings. The Mossad agents are known to operate very effectively in middle east, waging covert operations and assassinations in the past. They also have all the assets required to carry out such an operation. Iran has accused the state of Israel and the western powers for the recent bombing, and as is inmperative, Israel had totally denied the accusations.

In defiance of western pressure, Iran this week began uranium enrichment at Fordo facility near the holy city of Qom, in an underground bunker like site.
