Israel’s national intelligence agency Mossad is suspected of detonating bombs and issuing threats to German and Swiss companies in the 1980s for aiding Pakistan in its nascent nuclear weapons program.
Swiss daily Neue Zürcher Zeitung first reported on the findings Saturday.
The newspaper wrote that Israel felt the prospect of an Islamic state becoming a nuclear power was “an existential threat”.
The paper reported Pakistan and the Islamic Republic of Iran worked closely in the 1980s on the construction of nuclear weapons devices.
The intensive work of companies from Germany and Switzerland aiding Iran’s nuclear program “has been relatively well researched,” the paper reported.
