Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif implicated Israel in a plot to kill the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the Iran nuclear deal. 

He pointed out on Thursday in a pair of tweets a series of events that intertwine Mossad and Iran activity.
The tweet juxtaposes four sets of dates to show their closeness in time. 




The tweet also points to a visit from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to Switzerland and Austria coupled with a Mossad operation that stopped an Iranian bomb plot in France.


Zarif wrote, "Incredible series of coincidences. Or, a simple chronology of a MOSSAD program to kill the JCPOA?"


Earlier Zarif tweeted about "Mossad's perverse and stubborn planting of false flags."



Mossad provided Denmark with information that thwarted an Iranian plot to assassinate an Iranian separatist leader in the Scandinavian country, it was revealed on Wednesday.

A Norwegian citizen of Iranian background was arrested in Sweden on October 21 and extradited to Denmark.
