“Saudi spy chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and director of Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency Tamir Bardo sent their representatives to a meeting in Vienna on November 24 to increase the two sides’ cooperation in intelligence and sabotage operations against Iran’s nuclear program,” an informed source close to the Saudi secret service told FNA on Saturday.
“One of the proposals raised in the meeting was the production of a malware worse than the Stuxnet (a comprehensive US-Israeli program designed to disrupt Iran’s nuclear technology) to spy on and destroy the software structure of Iran’s nuclear program,” the source who asked for anonymity due to the sensitivity of his information added.
Stuxnet, a joint US-Israel project, is known for reportedly destroying many computer programs in Iran and was targetted at Iran’s nuclear centrifuges.
According to the source, the plan which needs much time and funding (around $1mln) was highly welcomed by the Saudis.
Meanwhile, the Sunday Times reported in November that Israel and Saudi Arabia had been working together secretly on plans for a possible attack against Iran in case the Geneva talks fail to roll back its nuclear program.
