The body of the commander of Iran’s Cyber War Headquarters was found unceremoniously dumped in the woods outside of Tehran with initial reports saying he was killed by two shots to the chest, as reported by The Telegraph (of London, England) on Oct. 2, 2013.
Mojtaba Ahmadi, assigned as the commander of the Cyber War Headquarters in Tehran, was found dead in a forested area near the capital city’s suburb of Karaj.
Ahmadi was last seen Saturday leaving home for the Cyber War HQ, but was later discovered with two apparent bullet wounds to his heart.
As cited by Alborz, a quasi-official website of the Islamic Republic’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, “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,” according to an eyewitness.
All that has been released concerning the identity to possible suspects was restricted to the local police commander stating that “two people on a motorbike” were suspected.
In light that five Iranian nuclear missile scientists and one General Officer have died under mysterious circumstances since 2007, the Tehran regime has long accused the Israeli super-secret and even more deadly intelligence agency, the Mossad, of carrying out these suspected assassinations.
To date, the other prime movers in Iran’s nuclear weapons development that have been killed:
- Ardeshir Hossein-Pour, a key nuclear scientist working on Iran's uranium conversion program died suddenly in 2007. The official explanation was that he died of "gas suffocation".
- Massoud Ali Mohammadi, a professor of physics and nuclear energy at Tehran University, was killed when a remote-controlled bomb exploded outside his home in January 2010.
- Majid Shahriari, a key player at the nuclear engineering faculty at the Shahid Beheshti University in Tehran, was killed in 2010 when attackers riding motorcycles attached a bomb to his car window.
- Darioush Rezaei-Nejad, who was studying for a masters degree in electronics, was shot dead in Tehran in the summer of 2011. Reports suggest he was affiliated with Iran's defense ministry.
- General Hassan Tehrani Moghaddam, the head of Iran's ballistic missile program, was killed in an explosion at an army base outside Tehran during November of 2011.
- Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan, another scientist assigned to the Natanz uranium enrichment facility, was killed by a bomb attached to his car window in Tehran in early 2011.
The former Deputy Defense Minister Alireza Asgari simply disappeared while visiting Turkey in 2006. It is widely believed he defected to another nation.
