Tehran, Jan 11, IRNA -- The terrorist behind last year's assassination of Iran's nuclear scientist confessed that he was trained in a military base in Israel, it was reported Tuesday.

The Iranian physics professor, Masoud Ali-Mohammadi, was assassinated in January 2010 in a car bomb when he was to go to work by his own car in the morning.

Speaking in an interview broadcast by the state television, Majid Jamali Fash talked in detail about his cooperation with the Zionist regime and the way he was trained for assassinating the Iranian sceintist.

Jamali Fash confessed he was trained in a military base located near a highway between Tel Aviv and Bait ul-Muqaddas.

'When we exited Tel Aviv, it took 30 minutes to get to the entrance of a garrison which was near Tel Aviv-Bait ul-Moqaddas highway,' the terrorist said.

He added that he was trained in 'surveillance, counter-surveillance, car chasing and how to stick a bomb under a car.'

'I entered a large structure warehouse in a large area with 10 containers in it...Next day we were back to the same place. They had put two Iranian-made motorcycles and told me where I should take the bombed motorcycle and how I should call a telephone number after that.'

Jamali Fash added that there was also a 'precise model of Dr. Ali-Mohammadi's house and its surroundings, the same color, the same curb, the same street and even the same tree, so that I would be familiar with the area and the operational conditions of the assassination.'
