Iran: No Israelis Here

On Sunday, I reported on the presence in Iran of three Israeli experts who are helping in post-earthquake reconstruction. Tonight, there is an official denial from the Iranian news agency IRNA and the Iranian embassy in Damascus:
Iranian Embassy in Syria in a statement issued on Thursday denied the claim made by the Zionist daily, Yedioth Ahronoth, about the visit of Israeli experts to Iran describing the report as baseless.

The document, a copy of which was faxed to IRNA representative office in Damascus, quoting an Iranian diplomat said that the report has been released while the degree of hostility of the Zionist regime with Iran, on account of Iran's will to seek justice, is clear to everyone and the Zionist politicians admit giving priority to measures against Iran.


The Sunday issue of Yedioth Ahronoth further claimed that during their recent 20-day visit to Iran, three Israeli geophysics experts examined ways to make Iran's infrastructural installations quake-resistant.

Note that the last paragraph is not denied. I'm wondering why they felt it necessary to answer this report at all if it's untrue. Surely no one in Iran saw it.
