Report: Israeli special forces operating inside Iran
A British newspaper claimed Sunday that Israel's special forces are operating inside Iran in an "urgent" mission to locate secret uranium enrichment facilities. The Sunday Times quoted an unnamed Israeli intelligence source as saying that, "We found several suspected sites last year but there must be more."
The newspaper also quoted Israeli sources as saying that the Israeli forces are based in northern Iraq, where they are "guarded by Israeli soldiers with the approval of the Americans."
Meanwhile, Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Larijani said on Saturday that the concern raised by the US over the possible radiations from Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant is a political issue. Speaking to reporters from Arab states and Gulf countries, he said that Bushehr Atomic Nuclear Power Station is equipped with a highly advanced safety system.
According to a report released by the SNSC Public Relations Department, he noted that the US pursues other goals to exaggerate the possibility of radiation at Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant.
