According to reports, the country tried to prevent Pakistan from developing its own nuclear weapons in the 1980s
A Swiss newspaper claimed that Mossad might be behind the bombing attacks and threats against several German and Swiss companies in the 1980s. According to reports, Israel is trying to prevent Pakistan from developing nuclear weapons.
The bombshell report was published on Sunday by Neue Zürcher Zeitung of Switzerland. The newspaper stated that Mossad was behind the three bomb attacks in Switzerland and Germany in 1981. The targets of the attacks were the property of individuals and companies involved in the sale of dual-use materials to Pakistan. The blast damaged the building and killed a dog, and then called other companies believed to be involved in dealings with Pakistanis, warning that they could become the next target unless they abandon their nuclear-related commercial transactions with Islamabad.
At that time, an unknown organization called the South Asian Organization for the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons claimed responsibility for these attacks. However, no one had heard of the organization before the attack, and has not appeared since.
The Swiss newspaper cited recent unclassified documents from the US State Department as saying that the US is dissatisfied with Pakistan’s attempts to develop its own nuclear weapons, but Washington does not want to alienate the Islamabad government. American diplomats first tried to persuade the authorities in Bonn and Berne to prevent the company from selling dual-use materials to Pakistan. However, these efforts have had little effect. As the paper claims, a series of attacks against related personnel and entities occurred a year later.
According to the report, Israel believes that the prospect of Muslim countries possessing nuclear weapons is an existential threat. According to reports, Israel has taken more decisive action to prevent this from happening. However, the newspaper admitted that there was no “Smoking gun“There is no doubt that the target is directed at Israel. However, the report said that there is some circumstantial evidence that may be related to Mossad.
For example, one of the businessmen who was threatened after the attack told the Swiss police that the Israeli Secret Service had contacted him. According to reports, he also told investigators that Mr. David, who works at the Israeli Embassy in Germany, had called him many times and even met him once in person, trying to persuade him to opt out of business with Pakistan.
The historian Adrian Hänni also told the New Zurich newspaper that the bombing had all the characteristics of a secret agent operation and was very similar to the attack that occurred two years ago. The target of the attack was allegedly involved in the Iraqi nuclear program. people.
The report concludes that despite the attacks and threats, most data claim that German and Swiss companies that sell dual-use materials to Pakistan continue to engage in lucrative businesses. The Swiss newspaper also stated that a few years later, Abdul Kadir Khan, known as the father of Pakistan’s nuclear program, continued to help Iranians obtain uranium enrichment centrifuges.
