Did Israeli Mossad Assassinate an Iranian Cyber Commander?
Mojtaba Ahmadi, a commander of Iranian cyber forces has been apparently assassinated at close range by two people on a motorcycle. With similar assassinations taking place in Iran, one has to ask, “Was this an Israeli operation?”
According to reports, Ahmadi was shot two times in the heart at close range by two unknown assailants.
“I could see two bullet wounds on his body and the extent of his injuries indicated that he had been assassinated from a close range with a pistol,” an eyewitness told a Revolutionary Guard backed website.
The attack involving assailants on motor bikes sounds like a tactic used several times against Iranian Nuclear and Missile Scientists. Six key Iranians have been assassinated since 2007. And for years Iran and other nations have accused the Mossad of the strikes.
We may never know who was actually responsible, but with cyber attacks coming from Iran and with Iran’s nuclear threat against Israel, it would seem that they might have taken things into their own hands.
And that may now include physically targeting Iran’s cyber warriors.
