- (Mehr News Agency) -- The U.S. Central Command helped
15 Mossad agents involved in the assassination of Ayatollah Mohammad Baqer
al-Hakim to flee Iraq, an Egyptian weekly magazine disclosed on
- Ayatollah Hakim, the leader of the Supreme Assembly for
the Islamic Revolution in Iraq (SAIRI), was killed in a massive car bomb
blast in the holy city of Najaf on August 7. The blast left 82 killed and
more than 100 wounded.
- The U.S. Central Command was sure that the agents of
the Zionist intelligence service Mossad had planned and executed the
with the help of some elements from the U.S. and Iraqi spies, Al- Osboa'
- The U.S. Centcom acquired conviction about the plot after
examining the explosives used in the operation; the explosives -- which
were highly advanced -- are used only by Mossad, the weekly added.
- As a consequence, the Mehr News Agency now initially
breaks the story about the Mossad involvement in the killing of the
Iraqi Shiite leader.
- An Iraqi political analyst said that evidence of Mossad
involvement has been found at the Najaf blast site. The analyst, speaking
on condition of anonymity, told the Mehr News Agency that Zionist
agents have made great efforts to infiltrate Iraqi groups in order to
efforts to create national unity.
- After Saddam Hussein was ousted, the Zionist regime took
advantage of divisions among the Iraqi Shi'ites and sent a large number
of extremist Jews and Mossad agents to Iraq, with the help of the occupying
forces, to infiltrate Islamic groups and obtain information, the analyst
- He added that a few months ago, a Mossad agent who knew
Arabic and was quite familiar with Iraqi Muslim groups made a great effort
to infiltrate organizations in southern Iraq and even influenced these
- He stated that there are reports that the terrorist
Khalq Organization (MKO) is helping Zionist operatives in Iraq and is
direct help from U.S. troops, adding that there is a written agreement
to this effect.
- Saddam supported the MKO for years and ordered MKO
to spy on and wage war against the Iraqi Shia.
- The main goal of the Zionists is sowing discord among
Muslims, especially the Shia, because they are aware of the people's great
attachment to clerics such as martyr Ayatollah Baqer al-Hakim, who have
been making efforts to unite the people in order to prevent the domination
of Iraq and the plunder of its resources.
- While not ruling out the possibility of the involvement
of extremist groups such as Al-Qaeda in the blast in Najaf, Mehr Agency's
source noted, "Of course, I think the massive propaganda by the
media and the emphasis on blaming Al-Qaeda or remnants of the Baath Party
should be considered a conscious effort to conceal the role of Zionist
and occupying forces in this abominable atrocity."
- He said that increased insecurity and the outbreak of
a civil war among Muslims, especially the Shia, could be used as an excuse
for continuing the occupation of Iraq, adding that U.S. troops' refusal
to maintain security at religious sites is part of this plot.
