Conjecture: ‘Did Mossad kill Iran’s missile research?’

This is my suspicion. It seems all the stories about an Israeli strike on Iran was disinformation. It was a cover for this operation.

A key figure in Iran’s missile program has been killed in an explosion at a Revolutionary Guard base in the country. Some reports suggest that the blast which killed Brigade General Hassan Moghaddam and 16 others may have been an act of sabotage.

General Moghaddam was a senior officer involved in developing new long-range ballistic missile designs, and Tehran says many of its missile program’s successes were due to his special skill and expertise.

He and 16 others were killed on Saturday when a shipment of artillery shells detonated at a military site some 25 kilometers west of Tehran. The blast also left 16 people wounded.

US-based radical left-wing commentator Richard Silverstein, who is reputed to have contacts in the Israeli military, said in his blog that he was told the explosion was the work of Mossad. His source said Israeli intelligence had been working with an exile group, the People’s Mojaheddin of Iran.

Speculation that the blast was not accidental had been voiced in the Israeli media. No official comments confirming or denying the allegations have been circulated, and none are expected.

Suspicions of secret Israeli operations against Iran have been raised on several occasions. Several senior scientists involved in the country’s controversial nuclear program were killed last year in a series of bomb assassinations.
