Israeli Walla news site said on Tuesday evening that it had obtained the information from former foreign intelligence services officials who did not give their names, Middle East Monitor reported.
A number of Iranian scientists who were assassinated or assassination attempts were made on their lives several years ago were killed or wounded by members of the Israeli Mossad who drove motorcycles and pasted adhesive explosives on these scientists cars, according to the site.
The site quoted the foreign intelligence officials as saying that Fakhrizadeh was on Israel’s list of targets, but did not mention the reasons for not moving forward in that scheme.
The United Nations describes Fakhrizadeh Mahabadi as a senior Ministry of Defence and Armed Forces Logistics scientist and former head of the Physics Research Center (PHRC).
Fakhrizadeh is the only person mentioned by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at his press conference two days ago, in which he revealed alleged documents claiming they prove that Tehran continued to develop its military nuclear capabilities despite signing an agreement with the major powers three years ago.
The Israeli premier was mocked at by experts and even world officials.
The IAEA has underlined Iran’s full compliance with the terms of the nuclear deal in 11 reports since the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was signed by Iran and the six world powers.
Netanyahu is notorious for his allegations since 1999 that Iran is only 6 months to one year away from developing an atomic bomb.
Israel is believed to be armed with 200 to 400 nuclear warheads and is signatory to no international treaty, including the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
