In an interview with This is My Story, Thomas said the assassination that was carried out in late 2010 in Tehran was a classic example of a Mossad operation.
On November 29, 2010, Dr. Majid Shahriari was targeted by a bomb attached to his car by terrorists on a motorcycle. He was martyred immediately but his wife narrowly escaped death.
In a similar attack on another university lecturer on the same day, terrorists tried to assassinate Fereydoun Abbasi. However, Abbasi and his wife survived with only minor injuries.
Abbasi and Shahriari were both professors at Shahid Beheshti University in Tehran.
Thomas said the Mossad has a group of engineers and scientists who design and produce various types of weapons, adding that one of these weapons is a small fist-sized bomb equipped with a suction pump.
Thomas explained Mossad's experts spent weeks to figure out how to make this bomb and how to attach it to a moving car and decided motorcycles should be used as the getaway vehicles in the assassination attempts in Tehran,
