Iranian website: Will Iran be attacked from Azerbaijan’s territory?

“Will Iran be attacked from Azerbaijan’s territory?” So asks an article in Irdiplomacy.ir.

The author of the article, citing Global Post’s report, notes that according to intelligence officials, Iran’s security services have concluded that Azerbaijan, its Muslim neighbor to the north, has been enlisted by Israel in a campaign of cyber attacks, assassinations and detailed military planning aimed at destabilizing and ultimately destroying Tehran’s nuclear research program.

Referring to assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists over the past several years, the author of the article writes: “As tensions between Israel and Iran have heightened and US and European talks on Iran’s nuclear program have stalled, Iran has been rocked by a series of assassinations of senior Iranian nuclear scientists and at least one instance where a complex and damaging computer virus, called Stuxnet, was inserted manually into the servers of its nuclear program. Iranian officials have publicly blamed these attacks on the Israel’s foreign intelligence agency. But US officials say Iran has recently concluded that the assassinations and other acts of sabotage have been orchestrated with the help of Azerbaijan.”

Commenting on military cooperation between Azerbaijan and Israel, the author writes: “Drone aircraft had been among the $1.6 billion in weapons purchased by the Azeris. So Iran believes the link is much more substantial — to the point where they fear Israeli aircraft or special ops guys could be based on Azeri territory.”
