Iranian missile architect dies in blast. But was explosion a Mossad mission?

#1
The blast at the Alghadir missile base at Bid Ganeh was so powerful it rattled windows 30 miles away in Tehran. Witnesses said it sounded like a huge bomb had been dropped. Seventeen of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards were killed, among them a man described his peers as the "architect" of the country's missile programme, Major General Hassan Moghaddam.

The dead were buried with full state honours yesterday, and in a reflection of the extent of Iran's loss, the funeral was attended by the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The official account insisted the blast was an accident, but a source with close links to Iran's clerical regime blamed it on an operation by the Mossad, bolstering other reports of involvement by Israel's intelligence and special operations organisation that were attributed to western intelligence services.

If true, the blast would mark a dramatic escalation in a shadow war over the Iranian nuclear programme.

Perhaps the Israelis have a secret weapon, some sort of stealth cruise missile, a sort of flying bagel hidden behind an invisible foreskin!

It would suit both sides to "credit" Mossad, accident or not.....
Bit embarrasing for the Iranians.

Much better for them to 'foil' a MOSSAD plot than suffer a successful one.

We've already been over this on one of Israel Götterdämmerung threads, latest I read is the Iranians have stopped pretending it was an accident.
