BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Mossad was behind a blast at an Iranian military base on 12 October that killed 18 Iran Revolutionary Guards and injured 14 others, Israeli Hebrew-language news site Enyan Merkazi reported Monday.

According to the news site, Mossad, Israel’s spy agency, recruited Iranian agents who penetrated an ammunition storage area in the top-secret base in the city of Khoramabad, 500 kilometers southwest of the capital, Tehran.

The news site reported that Iran’s Shehab-3 medium-range missile launchers were stored in the arms depot, “stocked for striking Israel in the event of war.”

The Iranian government-backed IRNA news agency reported that the blast was caused by a fire that had reached the storage area, with most news sites saying the explosion was an accident.

A day after, Iranian MP Reza Rahiminasab told The Tehran Times that the blast was not a “terrorist incident.”

“Other reports about the incident are rumors and should not be heeded,” he added.

Reports of Israel’s involvement in the blast follow the airing of footage of a nuclear reactor in the Galilee, marking the first time Israel’s nuclear facilities have been openly broadcast to the public.
