Killing of top scientist didn’t slow Iran’s nuke work, official tells Israeli TV
As nuclear talks resume in Vienna, official says Israel pushing for ‘upgraded agreement’ to restrict Tehran’s nuclear program along with development of ‘significant attack plan’

Israel’s alleged assassination of top Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh did not have the desired effect of slowing down Iran’s nuclear work, an official told Israeli television on Tuesday. “The killing of Fakhrizadeh a year ago did not brake Iran’s progress as was hoped,” the anonymous Israeli official was quoted as saying by Channel 12 news. “The current situation is the most advanced that Iran has ever reached.”

Therefore, the official added, “there is a huge global Israeli effort — both publicly and behind the scenes — to push for an upgraded agreement as well as simultaneously building a large and significant attack plan.” Fakhrizadeh, identified by Israel as the father of Iran’s rogue nuclear weapons program, was assassinated last year in a sophisticated hit reportedly led by a Mossad team. Iran has accused Israel of carrying out the hit and threatened revenge. Israel has not publicly commented on the allegation that it was responsible, though former Mossad chief Yossi Cohen confirmed earlier this year that Fakhrizadeh was long in the spy agency’s sights.
