Reports are streaming out of Iran today as intelligence agencies and news networks alike are putting the pieces together on a deadly attack against the preeminent Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.
According to several outlets, the attack, which took place this morning outside Tehran, was initiated by an explosive device and was followed up with a barrage of small arms fire. Photos from the scene show the vehicle with several bullet holes in the windshield and side windows.
At the time of publishing, no organization or foreign military has taken responsibility for the attack. The New York Times is reporting that “one American official — along with two other intelligence officials — said that Israel was behind the attack on the scientist.”
But it’s obvious who was behind it: Mossad. More specifically, Kidon, Mossad’s specialized hit squad.
