Fears of an Iranian reprisal for the killing of nuclear chief prompt Israel to warn its own scientists & reactor workers


Israeli nuclear scientists and former staff at its southern Dimona reactor have been warned they may be targeted by Iran after its top nuclear scientist was assassinated last week in what Tehran claims was an Israeli attack.

At least one former Dimona scientist has been told by Israeli security officials that Iran is monitoring his internet activity, and that he should avoid walking along particular routes regularly, while remaining vigilant for unexpected packages, according to reports by Israel’s Kan broadcaster. 

According to Israeli ex-counter-terrorism chief Nitzan Nuriel, the likelihood of Tehran authoring attacks on Israeli officials overseas, as has happened before, is low, but he said people “need to be cautious.”
