Iranian Minister indicates Israel’s involvement in scientist assassination 

Monitoring Desk :

Iranian state media said the killing appeared to be an assassination. Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami was quoted by Iran’s semi-official news agency ISNA as saying Fakhrizadeh was targeted by gunfire and a Nissan vehicle explosion before a firefight ensued.
Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif called the death “cowardice — with serious indications of Israeli role.”

The key Iranian scientist Fakhrizadah was killed in an explosion and firing on Friday evening. His car was targeted in the eastern district of Tehran, the Iranian capital.

Fakhrizadeh was head of the research center of new technology in the elite Revolutionary Guards and was a leading figure in Iran’s nuclear program for many years.

The office of the Israeli Prime Minister is yet to make any comment on the assassination of the Iranian scientist.
