A report by NBC News quoted unnamed US officials as saying that the string of assassinations of nuclear scientists in Iran is the work of the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (MEK), and that the group receives funding, training and arms from the Mossad.
This marks the first time that US officials have confirmed that Israel is behind the hits.
The NBC News website also quoted a senior aide to Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as saying “[t]hey (Israelis) are paying … the Mujahedin. Some of their (MEK) agents … (are) providing Israel with information. And they recruit and also manage logistical support.”
