The London newspaper The Telegraph reports this week that the continuing assassination of top Iranian nuclear scientists has taken a new turn with the killing of Iran’s top cyber warfare commander.

According to the story, “Mojtaba Ahmadi, who served as commander of the Cyber War Headquarters, was found dead in a wooded area near the town of Karaj, north-west of the capital, Tehran. Five Iranian nuclear scientists and the head of the country’s ballistic missile program have been killed since 2007. The regime has accused Israel’s external intelligence agency, the Mossad, of carrying out these assassinations.”

Last month, a number of banks in the U.S. were targets of distributed denial of service attacks that are believed to have originated in Iran.
