Israel Television has just reported that Hassan Moghadam, who was responsible for Iran’s missile program, was killed in Saturday’s blast outside Tehran. DEBKA reported this late on Saturday night. Here’s their story.

Brig. Hassan Moghadam, head of Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) missile development and sections of its nuclear program, was killed in one of the two consecutive explosions that hit two IRGC bases 46 kilometers west of Tehran Saturday, Nov. 12. The official fatality figure is 32. Fourteen hours after explosions blasts could still be heard and fires raged. debkafile’s exclusive sources report the bases are located in Malard, a town in the Shahryar district. The Moadarres facility was the first to be hit, while the second and bigger blast occurred at Amir-al-Mo’menin.

Their force was such that the Iranian Red Crescent rushed 45 ambulances to the two facilities plus 23 buses converted to first-aid vehicles and a helicopter to evacuate the critically injured.

However, only six rescue workers were given access to the Moadarres base and none were permitted to enter Amir-al-Mo’menin because of the facility’s sensitivity.

Fourteen hours after the explosions, the blasts continued and fires raged. Surrounding streets were closed and reporters kept away from the scene.

Our sources report increasing evidence that the first explosion was caused by a failed effort to mount a nuclear warhead on a Shahab-3 intermediate-range missile.

CBS News has now confirmed the story.

The son of the former commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards was found dead on Sunday in a hotel in Dubai.

  1. Great job scoring an “own goal” Dinnerjacket! You’ve earned a Darwin award on behalf of these poor schmucks who died for your cause.

  2. if those reports are true then what kind of dick-wad tries to assemble an experimental weapon in an ammo dump?
    those people were/are supposed to be their brightest and best!
    obviously not sufficiently islamic so allah bumped them off:)

  3. Somehow it seems worthwhile to remind of “G_d helps those who help themselves, as does God”.

    And cyber virus duqu has been out awhile, may be more insidious than stuxnet. Nice to hear they caught a cold again, too.

    Thanks to a couple pals, way back 1380 oddball years ago, supremacists have been playing way out in left field, increasingly way out of all their class for a long time, we will see, soon, I think, depending….

    Also, might be worthy of note, according to sources of many nations downwind of Pakistan, unusually high levels of radioactive I 141 is being detected, and is believed to be from a leak in a 40 year old Kabul nuke reactor, in Pakistan! Hmmm……..

    Next, paranoiaaa and westernophobiaaa. Supremacists should be careful “what they wish for”, too. Unintended consequences, and ultimate realities always apply, eventually, just as with Martel, Sobieski, and others. The war against evil continues…..
