Israel's Mossad is responsible for training and paying the assassins of a number of Iranian nuclear scientists over the past two years, TIME magazine reported Saturday citing unnamed Western intelligence sources.

In addition to the assassinations of the scientists, all of which were carried out using nearly identical magnetic bombs attached to the side of their cars, the intelligence sources claimed Israel was responsible for an explosion at an Iranian missile base outside Tehran late last year.

Majid Jamali Fashi, one of several suspects arrested, tried and sentenced to death by the Islamic Republic in the past two years, was part of cell operated by the Mossad, the sources cited by TIME said.

The latest assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist took place last week in Tehran. Like the others before him, 35-year-old Darioush Rezaie, a physicist, was killed by a magnetic bomb attacked the to door of his car.
