TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The spokesperson for the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps said a satellite-controlled electronic devices have been used in the recent assassination of eminent Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.
In remarks at a ceremony held in commemoration of the late Iranian scientist on Sunday, General Ramezan Sharif said advanced satellite-controlled electronic instruments have been employed in the November 27 assassination of Fakhrizadeh.
The head of the IRGC’s public relations department also lauded the head of the martyr’s security team for making great sacrifices in order to protect the scientist amid the assassination attack.
The general further warned the Zionist regime that its actions will not remain unanswered.
The occupying Zionists and their fake regime have assassinated 2,700 elites of regional Islamic nations over the past 70 years, he stated.
The Zionists are feeling the threat posed to their flimsy power and nature, Sharif added, pointing to the military defeat of Israel in the 33-Day War.
Last week, Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani said Fakhrizadeh was assassinated in a complicated operation that involved electronic equipment without any assassin at the scene.
“Unfortunately, the operation was a very complicated one. It took place with the employment of electronic equipment. No person (assassin) was present at the scene,” he said.
Pointing to the clues that Iran has found about the attack, Shamkhani said, “It has become clear to us who has masterminded this and what its background is. The Munafeqin (Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization terrorists) have been involved for sure, and the criminal element in this job is definitely the Zionist regime and Mossad.”
Fakhrizadeh, a senior nuclear and defense scientist, was assassinated in a small city east of Tehran on November 27.
In a message after the incident, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei called on all relevant administrators to “investigate this crime and firmly prosecute its perpetrators and its commanders” and “to continue the martyr’s scientific and technological efforts in all the sectors where he was active.”
