Israeli Attack On Iran Underway?

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

Mossad linked to Iran missile blast

"A US blogger who has frequently published Israeli security information yesterday claimed that the Mossad secret service and the Iranian dissident group Mujaheddin-e Khalq were jointly responsible for the blast at an Iranian missile base on Sunday in which 17 members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard were killed, including a senior commander.

Richard Silverstein cited an Israeli “with extensive senior political and military experience” as the source of the information.

The blast at a military base 40km from Tehran was felt in the capital. The base reportedly stores long-range shahab missiles capable of hitting Israel. The senior officer killed in the explosion was General Hassan Tehrani Moqaddam, said to be the top commander in Iran’s missile force. Sixteen people were wounded in the blast. Tehran residents said they thought it was an earthquake. A cloud of smoke hung over the base for hours.

Iranian officials denied any sabotage and said the explosion was due to an accident while ammunition was being moved.

A Revolutionary Guard spokesman said an investigation was under way into the cause of the explosion."
