The Mossad allegedly attempted to attack the Islamic Republic of Iran’s key Fordow nuclear enrichment site, Iranian media claimed on Monday night.
There was no way to independently confirm the report. Tehran frequently claims to have busted Mossad cells when actually it is merely arresting local opposition elements.
According to Iranian media, a statement from the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) intelligence unit said a Mossad team that was seeking to carry out an act of sabotage at Fordow was arrested.
Further, reports said that an employee had been given cash and a laptop to sabotage the site, but that he was caught and arrested by the IRGC.
Fordow is the second most important site in terms of volume of centrifuges for enriching uranium, after the Natanz facility.
