TEHRAN – In a statement issued on Monday, the Intelligence Ministry announced that the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad was behind the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Masoud Ali-Mohammadi in 2010.

The Intelligence Ministry “managed to identify and arrest a network of spies and terrorists linked to the Zionist regime,” the statement read.

Iran’s security forces could find access to significant and sensitive information about Mossad operational and spying teams which dealt a heavy blow to the intelligence and security structures of the Zionist regime, the statement said.

“In order to realize its inhumane, anti-Islamic, and anti-Iranian goals, Mossad has some bases in some European and non-European countries as well as certain neighboring countries of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and had used these bases to direct the inhumane assassination of Martyr Dr. Masoud Ali-Mohammadi,” it added.

The statement added that further information in this regard will be announced in the appropriate time.

Ali-Mohammadi was assassinated in a terrorist bomb attack in Tehran in January 2010.

Professor Ali-Mohammadi, who taught at Tehran University, was killed by a remote-control bomb attached to a motorbike.

The bomb was detonated near the professor’s home in the Qeytariyeh neighborhood of northern Tehran.

Moreover, On November 29, 2010, two prominent physicists were targeted by terrorists in two separate bombings. Professor Majid Shahriari was killed and Professor Fereydoun Abbasi Davani was injured in the attacks. The two academics were both on their way to work at Shahid Beheshti University in northern Tehran when they were attacked. The police say that in both incidents, terrorists riding motorcycles attached magnetic bombs to the physicists’ cars.

Iranian officials have said British MI6, CIA, and Mossad are the main suspects behind the attacks.
