It’s espionage season in the Middle East. Earlier this month, in the woods outside Tehran, Iranian police found the body of Mojtaba Ahmadi, head of the Iranian “Cyber Warfare” squad. According to local cops, two people on a motorcycle had been “involved” in his death, in what has all the hallmarks of a classic spy assassination. A couple of days later, spies in the same city swooped in on four nuclear workers who they suspected of working for “hostile nations” with the aim of sabotaging Iran’s nuke industry.

This month’s also seen the abduction of Abu Anas al-Libi, an al-Qaeda computer expert, from outside his home in the Libyan capital of Tripoli, and a botched attempt to nab a senior al-Shabaab member from his classy seafront villa in Barawe, Somalia. It’s thought that ultimately the US government was behind both kidnapping attempts, which occurred more or less simultaneously in what seems to be a response to the Westgate Mall attack.

It’s proving tougher to identify culprits in the Iranian cases, however. Most media reports have pointed the finger at Mossad, Israel’s notorious foreign spy agency. But despite Mossad having previous experience when it comes to assassinations and Iran, the organization’s former head of intelligence in Jordan, Mishka Ben-David, has his doubts. “Neither the target, nor the method indicates Mossad involvement,” he said. “And the Iranian authorities—who usually are very quick to accuse Mossad—didn’t.” A former British spy I spoke to didn’t think Mossad would be capable of pulling it off alone either, and suggested that they would have needed the help of another group already operating inside the country. “They’d almost certainly need locals,” he said. “Guys from the People’s Mujahedin (MEK), perhaps—Mossad might recruit them by pretending to be a group from somewhere other than the hated Israel.” So, rather than Mossad directly, it could have been members of a domestic dissident group operating—perhaps unwittingly—at Mossad’s behest.
