Israel Strikes Iran Again in a Hi-Tech Way!
 
Israel killed Iran's top nuclear scientist from 1,000 miles away using a remote-controlled sniper machine gun

Fakhrizadeh, despite being under constant threat of assassination, opted against using extra protective measures advised by his security team. Instead of being escorted in an armored vehicle, he decided to drive himself and his wife from their vacation home near the Caspian Sea back to their country home in Absard in their black Nissan Teana sedan.

Little did he know that waiting for him in Absard was a hidden remote killing machine, well positioned to take his life. Here's what happened next, according to the Times:

Iranian agents working for the Mossad had parked a blue Nissan Zamyad pickup truck on the side of the road connecting Absard to the main highway. The spot was on a slight elevation with a view of approaching vehicles. Hidden beneath tarpaulins and decoy construction material in the truck bed was a 7.62-mm sniper machine gun.

Around 1 p.m., the hit team received a signal that Mr. Fakhrizadeh, his wife and a team of armed guards in escort cars were about to leave for Absard, where many of Iran's elite have second homes and vacation villas.

The assassin, a skilled sniper, took up his position, calibrated the gun sights, cocked the weapon and lightly touched the trigger.

He was nowhere near Absard, however. He was peering into a computer screen at an undisclosed location more than 1,000 miles away. The entire hit squad had already left Iran....


Technology can be lethal, man. And the Israelis are second to none in the hi-tech department.

Except that weapon system was designed 16 years ago by a guy named Jim from New Hampshire.

The weapon may have been designed 16 years (which is still in this century) but did he design it to be used remotely with computers? The Iranian scientist was offed by a sharpshooter 1,000 miles away who could have been sitting in a bar, in his living room, his office or on the throne in his bathroom for all we know.

Yes, it was designed to be remote. There were 4 of us near lunch time, two engineers complaining we were working on things that kill people. Jim looked at me and said where did we find these two guys, I said the bigger the gun the better I liked it.

The weapon was aimed at a caravan of cars that contained the scientist, his wife, (maybe his kids) and security personnel.

None. They used facial recognition software so only he got shot.

I have to wonder about that, since they fired at the cars. How could the scientist even be seen inside a car unless he was driving, which wasn't likely? The only time anyone could be seen is after they fled from their vehicle.
