An explosion that killed 18 members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard on October 12 was ordered by the Mossad, French newspaper Le Figaro suggested on Monday.  Another cause for the blast mentioned by the paper was a targeted Israeli air raid.

Official Iranian reports stated that the explosion occurred after a fire broke out in a weapons depot.Le Figaro also alleged that the explosion occurred at a secret missile site for the long-range Shahab-3, capable of being modified to carry a nuclear payload and striking Israel.

The Imam Ali missile base is located in western Iran near the city of Khoramabad.
