AFP reports that Iran complained in a letter to the UN Security Council that Israel assassinated its nuclear scientists as part of a “war game,” at the same time denying any role in attacks on Israeli diplomatic targets in India, Georgia, and Thailand.
The letter, sent by Iran’s UN ambassador Mohammad Khazaee, said Israel has been allowed to commit crimes against others with “impunity.”
Khazaee said Israel had made “unfounded allegations and distortions” against his country over the recent attacks and bombings. Iran “categorically rejects the allegations concerning any involvement of its officials or organs whatsoever in alleged recent terrorist operations against Israeli targets in a number of countries, namely Thailand, India, Georgia or Azerbaijan.”
According to Khazaee, Iran has “suffered from terrorist acts including assassinations of her nuclear scientists due to the tacit and explicit support extended by the Israeli regime to terrorist groups. These operations, as well as attributing the violent acts, are part of the general war game waged by this regime against Iran.”
On the other hand, Khazaee accused Israel of “covert operations, cyber warfare, psychological war and assassination of nuclear scientists,” all the while threatening military strikes on Iran.
In summation, Iran’s UN ambassador said: “Regrettably, the impunity with which the Israeli regime has been allowed to carry out its crimes thus far, has emboldened it to continue and even increase its blatant defiance of the most basic and fundamental principles of international law and the United Nations Charter.”
On occasion it’s nice to read good things about one’s country, reflected through the eyes of a sworn enemy. If half of what Khazaee said about covert operations, cyber warfare, psychological war and assassination of nuclear scientists is true, then we should sleep quietly tonight…
