Summary:TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iranian embassy in New York received a virus-infected letter from Israel which threatened to make more biological attacks in the future.
The Iranian mission at the UN headquarters in New York received a suspicious letter sealed with an Israeli stamp which contained a number of dead insects.
“Those who are enemies of Israel will be targeted by virus attacks,” the letter read.
The diplomats at the Iranian mission immediately informed the relevant US officials who dispatched a team of anti-virus experts to the embassy and they transferred the virus-laced letter under special care to prevent any possible infection.
Based on the latest information, no Iranian diplomat has been infected with the suspicious letter.
Israel, an arch foe of the Islamic Republic, is notorious for its terrorist efforts against Iran.
The regime in Tel Aviv has been a main accomplice in the assassination of Iranian scientists, and made strenuous attempts to disrupt Iran's nuclear program by Stuxnet malware.
In June 2012, the Iranian Intelligence Ministry announced that its intelligence forces have identified and arrested all terrorist elements behind the assassination of the country's nuclear scientists.
"A number of countries, whose territories and facilities had been misused by the Mossad-backed terrorist teams, have provided the Iranian officials with relevant information," the ministry said in a statement.
According to the statement, Iran's Intelligence Ministry had detected some of Mossad's bases within the territories of one of Iran's Western neighbors, which provided training and logistical support to the terrorist networks.
An Iranian court of revolution in August sentenced to death the terrorist who assassinated Iranian university professor and nuclear scientist, Massoud Ali Mohammadi, in Tehran in January 2010.
Majid Jamali Fashi pleaded guilty to murdering Massoud Ali Mohammadi, saying that he had received $120,000 to kill the Iranian scientist.
Majid Jamali Fashi said in his confessions aired by the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) on January 11, 2011, "I became acquainted with a number of Israeli officers on the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway after we had a visit to Israel and I received different training courses, including chasing, running, counter-chasing and techniques for planting bombs in a car."
The terrorist added that he had also been trained in an Israeli garrison how to carry out bomb attacks while riding a motorcycle.
Jamali Fashi also said that he had received psychological and operational briefings for assassinating Dr. Ali Mohammadi and had exercised the bombing plot for killing the Iranian scientist several times at the Israeli garrison.
He also mentioned during his confessions that small models of Dr. Mohammadi's house and his house surroundings were used during his training course.
Stuxnet, a joint US-Israel project, is known for reportedly destroying many computer programs in Iran and was targeted at Iran’s nuclear centrifuges.
Meanwhile, "Duqu," another espionage program was deployed to infiltrate specific computers within key companies that had programs related to Iran's nuclear program. Duqu and Stuxnet shared a common programming platform apparent in their code, linking them to the same team of programmers.
In an interview conducted using encrypted e-mails in July, whistleblower Edward Snowden discussed the power of the NSA, how it is "in bed together with the Germans" and the vast scope of Internet spying conducted by the United States and Britain, where he disclosed that the Stuxnet virus which infiltrated Iranian computers had been co-written by NSA and Israel.
