Israelis are on the ground and undercover in Iran, according to a
report published Sunday in a British newspaper. The question is
whether the report, published in The Sunday Times, compromises the
safety of the Israeli mission.
The soldiers were tasked with finding the “smoking gun” evidence that
Iran´s nuclear development program is focused on production of atomic
weapons, the paper claimed.
Israeli commandos have been operating disguised as Iranian soldiers,
the newspaper reported, infiltrating through the border from a base
in the Kurdistan region of northern Iraq.
Efforts have been stepped up to determine the activity at the Parchin
military complex near Tehran, a facility closed to International
Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspection, according to sources quoted
in the report, as the window of opportunity to prevent Iran from
obtaining a nuclear weapon rapidly closes.
Intelligence is also aiming operations at the underground Fordow
nuclear plant near Qom, where Iran is intensifying efforts to enrich
uranium. Scientists at Fordow have already managed to achieve 20-
percent enrichment – beyond that necessary for basic medical needs
and attaining that necessary for military use.
The information is not new, according to the report. Israel has been
carrying out the activity for several years, using Black Hawk
helicopters to transport the commandos.
Various types of sensitive military equipment have also been used to
monitor the radioactivity and magnitude of explosions that take place
during Iranian nuclear tests.
Israel has repeatedly warned that it will not allow Iran to reach
nuclear military capability as the Islamic Republic has vowed to
annihilate the Jewish State. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 03/25/12)
