Reports: Israel behind blast at Iranian missile silo

Two weeks ago, an explosion at an Iranian military base killed some 18 people, including Revolutionary Guards.

Some details that emerged since then indicated that the base housed Iran's Shahab-3 missiles, which can reach Israel - and which can carry a nuclear payload. And those missiles are what exploded, not "ammunition," as Iran claimed.

Now, Le Figaro is reporting that this was a Mossad operation.

Who knows? Even if it wasn't, it can't hurt to make Iran think it was.
