An Iranian Air Force scientist from the Aerospace Unit was killed “during a mission” at the Semnan Air Defense Base in northern Iran, the semiofficial Fars News Agency reported Monday morning. The scientist, identified as Mohammad Abdous, reportedly worked on the Islamic Republic’s satellite program, in addition to developing UAVs and ballistic missiles as part of his work in the air force. He died within 24 hours of another Iranian aerospace official.

Iran’s nuclear archives that were raided by the Mossad in 2018 revealed that the ayatollahs were planning two potential nuclear underground test sites in Semnan province. These latest assassinations, or series of incidental deaths, depending on one’s perspective, may be the most significant to date, as they could directly setback Tehran’s ability to develop and deliver a nuclear weapon.

Last December and this past March, Iran attempted space satellite launches, which Israel, the US and others are concerned could advance the same skills needed for firing and delivering an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) with a nuclear warhead.
