The Mossad (Israeli spy agency) smuggled a one-ton gun in separate pieces which it assembled in Iran and used it to kill the mastermind of the Iranian nuclear program.

The report is from The Jewish Chronicle and was published on Wednesday.

The UK-based paper cited intelligence sources saying a team of more than 20 spy agents, comprising of both Israeli and Iranian nationals, targeted Mohsen Fakhrizadeh after eight months of surveillance.

After the attack, Iran had said it has information that confirms it was an Israeli attack on its soil.

Iranian government sources had also said the machine gun was smuggled in the country by Mossad agents.

The spies mounted the gun on a self-driving Nissan truck that came near the scientist house, killing him when he left his car.

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif wrote on Twitter there were “serious indications of (an) Israeli role.”

Iran has vowed to avenge the killing. Iran has also said the Fakhrizadeh’s killing was carried out using a satellite-controlled machine gun with “artificial intelligence.”

Fakhrizadeh was described as the “father of the Iranian bomb” in a famous 2018 presentation by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

On the other hand, Israeli analysts have assessed that Fakhrizadeh’s death has extended the time it would take Iran to obtain a bomb from a matter of months to as much as five years.
