Israel agents nabbed over Iran scientist hit
Iranian academic Masoud Ali-Mohammadi
Iran's Intelligence Ministry says it has dismantled an Israeli spy network and arrested the main perpetrators in connection with the assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist.
Following broad security operations, Iran succeeded to arrest the main agents behind the terrorist incident and dismantle a network comprising of Israeli-trained spies and terrorists, Fars news agency quoted the ministry as saying in a statement on Monday.
It added that Israeli intelligence service Mossad has used bases in certain European and non-European countries as well as Iran's neighboring states in an attempt to achieve its inhuman and non-Islamic goals.
The statement noted that the bases have also been used in the assassination of Dr. Massoud Ali-Mohammadi, a lecturer at the University of Tehran.
The ministry stressed that months of complicated measures and access to sources of the Israeli regime led to the finding of "very important and sensitive" information about Mossad spy teams, which inflicted heavy damage on Israel's information and security structures.
On July 12, Iranian nuclear physics scientist Ali-Mohammadi was killed in a remote-controlled bomb attack in the Iranian capital, Tehran.
The bombing took place near the professor's home in northern Tehran.
