Fourth nuclear scientist in 2 years killed in Iran
Question of the Day
Many analysts say that it is not yet clear whether Iran has decided to build a nuclear weapon or merely achieve the capability of doing so.
Micky Segall, a former head of the Iranian desk in Israeli military intelligence, told Israeli Army Radio that Wednesday’s assassination is an example of the heightened pressure being put on Iran.
“Many bad things are happening to Iran in the recent period,” he said.
In addition to the assassinations, the nuclear program has been hit by a computer virus that reportedly did extensive damage. Last month, a series of explosions hit a missile base and two facilities said to be connected to the nuclear program.
The French newspaper Le Figaro quoted Iraqi officials as saying that the Mossad was recruiting Iranian dissidents in the Kurdish region to carry out operations such as Wednesday’s in Tehran.
