Senior Commander: Iran to Surely Revenge Assassination of Nuclear Scientist
TEHRAN (FNA)- Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri underlined harsh revenge for the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.
"The time and place of revenge will be determined by Iran," Major General Baqeri said.
Martyr Fakhrizadeh was persecuted by the most vicious and cruelest people in the world for two decades, he said, adding, "Martyr Fakhrizadeh stood firm and took giant strides in in the field of science and knowledge."
In relevant remarks in early December, Iranian embassy in the Hague condemned assassination of nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, saying that evidence shows Tel Aviv's involvement in the terrorist attack.
There are various evidences, showing that the Zionist regime was behind the terrorist attack on Iranian scientist Fakhrizadeh, the embassy said in a statement on Wednesday December 2.
It also stressed that the Islamic Republic of Iran expects all countries in the world, specially countries such as the Netherlands, which claims to promote human rights, the rule of law and fight against insecurity.
While condemning this gross violation of international law, the Islamic Republic of Iran also expects the Netherlands to explicitly demand for accountability of perpetrators of this terrorist attack, the statement said.
Martyr Fakhrizadeh's car was targeted by an explosion and machinegun fire in Damavand's Absard 40 kilometers to the East of Tehran on Friday November 27, 2020.
The nuclear scientist and one of his companions were immediately taken to a nearby hospital but he could not be saved.
