Did Israel’s Mossad secret service cause weekend’s blast at Iranian Bid Ganeh weapons depot?

While Iranian authorities are continuing to claim that the weekend’s blast at a weapon’s depot was due to an accident, there are increasing claims that Mossad, the Israeli secret service, was allegedly at least partly responsible.

17 people died and 15 were wounded in the huge explosion at the Bid Ganeh base. Iran insists that the cause was an accident while munitions were being moved. But a number of sources are now claiming that this was allegedly the work of Mossad, with the aim of disrupting Iran’s alleged nuclear program, and that further such attacks could be imminent.

US blogger Richard Silverstein, who has been right about such things before, suggests that Mossad might have teamed up with Iranian militant group Mujahideen e-Khalq (MEK) to launch the alleged attack. Israeli authorities have pointedly refused to comment on the speculation, but some critics argue that Israel is allegedly using MEK as a kind of proxy armed force within Iran.

The explosion was so strong that it was reportedly felt 30 miles away in Tehran. Among those killed was Major General Hassan Moghaddam, reputed to have been a leading figure in the Iranian military’s alleged push to develop effective, deliverable nuclear weapons.
