In a set of e-mails, Stratfor officials discuss information they have received from one of their source who said the Israeli commandos have partnered with Kurdish forces to destroy Iran's nuclear installations.

In an e-mail sent on November 13 2011, a Stratfor analyst said the source had been asked to explain claims Israel had destroyed Iran's nuclear infrastructure and how had they had managed to do so without being detected.

According to the e-mail here is the source's response: "Israeli commandos in collaboration with Kurd forces destroyed a few underground facilities mainly used for the Iranian defence
and nuclear research projects."

"Even if the Israelis have the capabilities and are ready to attack by air, sea and land, there is no need to attack the nuclear program at this point after the commandos destroyed a significant part of it, " the e-mail quoted the source as saying.

In another e-mail also sent in November 2011, a source working as an Israeli intelligence agent further reported: "The Israelis already destroyed all the Iranian nuclear infrastructure on the ground weeks ago."
