Israel’s Mossad trained and financed a terrorist group that carried out a series of Hollywood-style assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists, unnamed US officials have revealed. Iran, however, believes the CIA was also sponsoring the killings.
Two senior US officials confirmed to NBC that People’s Mujahideen of Iran dissident group (MEK) was to blame for the killing of Iranian scientists. “All your inclinations are correct,” said one of the officials in an interview, while speaking about MEK’s involvement in the assassinations and Israel’s support for the group.
Mossad is secretly training MEK agents in Israel, preparing them to carry out sophisticated operations, Larijani said. For one of the previous attacks Mossad had even replicated the house of a nuclear scientist to prepare MEK assassins, Larijani added.
