A senior Israeli official issues a veiled threat to push ahead with assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists. In an interview with the German daily Der Spiegel, Israeli Minister of military affairs Moshe Ya’alon said that he bore no responsibility for the life expectancy of Iranian nuclear scientists. He noted that Tel Aviv would adopt any measure including targeting Iran’s nuclear facilities to stop what he called Tehran’s military nuclear program. The Israeli minister further expressed his opposition to the outcome of nuclear talks between Iran and the p-five-plus-one. Tehran says Israeli agents were behind the assassinations of its nuclear scientists. Five Iranian physicists were killed in Iran in the past decade, most of them in bomb attacks.
