The death of Mohsen Fakhri Zadeh Mahabdi has been officially confirmed.
Muhsin Fakhrizadeh, the man behind the nuclear bomb project and one of Iran’s leading nuclear scientists, died today in a suicide attack.
First, bombed-out Nissan car explodes in front of the car of Shahid Fakhrizadeh, who was traveling from one of the northern cities to Tehran, and then the gunmen opened fire on his car. Unfortunately, Shahid Fakhrizadeh was hit by 4 bullets.
Netanyahu implicitly confirms possible Israeli involvement in assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, Israeli media say
Statement of the Ministry of Defense of the Islamic Republic of Iran:
According to report of the Ministry of Defense Public Relations and Support of the Armed Forces, this Friday afternoon, armed terrorist elements attacked a vehicle carrying Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, head of the Research and Innovation Organization of the Ministry of Defense. During the clash between his security team and the terrorists, Mr. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was seriously injured and taken to hospital.
Unfortunately, the medical team did not succeed in reviving him, and a few minutes ago, this manager and scientist, after years of effort and struggle, achieved a high degree of martyrdom.
The Ministry of Defense Support the Armed Forces and condoles the cowardly act of assassinating one of its committed and expert managers in the presence of the Supreme Leader and the martyred nation of Islamic Iran.
In 2018, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu placed a special emphasis on his activities.
This is a very serious liquidation (we will most likely be talking about this).
Exactly 10 years ago, another specialist in the Iranian nuclear program was killed in a car bomb explosion.
According to Israeli media reports, several years ago, Fakhrizada managed to survive during an assassination attempt on his life.
UPD: Fakhrizade is reported to have died as a result of a shooting, which was carried out by unknown persons with the scientist’s bodyguards after the suicide bomber exploded.
