Saturday’s deadly blast at an Iranian military base was termed an “accident” by Iranian officials, with the Revolutionary Guard attributing it to an ammunition stock catching fire during transport.
But a growing number of reports are coming out, particularly in the Israeli press, which are calling the blast a collaborative effort between Mossad and the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MeK), an Iranian terrorist group which has received considerable support in recent months from Western officials hoping to use them in a war against Iran.
An anonymous source among several quoted on Mossad’s involvement went on to say that the attacks were an effort to “impede the Iranian ability to develop and deliver a nuclear weapon,” while predicting more attacks. It should be noted that the base involved has never even alleged to have any nuclear weapons aspect.
If the attack was indeed a covert Israeli attack, it might explain why Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak was cheering the death toll yesterday. On the other hand, publicly lauding “accidents” seems a funny way to avoid suspicion.
