Teheran - Il 21 novembre 2020, The "Times of Israel" ha affermato che il regime "israeliano" insieme agli Stati Uniti stanno pianificando "operazioni segrete" contro l'Iran al termine del mandato di Trump. Solo sei giorni dopo, l'eminente fisico iraniano Mohsen Fakhrizadeh è stato assassinato in un attacco terroristico nell'area di Damavand vicino alla capitale Teheran.
comes as a desperate attempt to put more pressure on Tehran amid the
constant US and allies attempts to hamper Iran from advancing in the
different fields, including nuclear development for peaceful purposes.
Iran’s Fars news agency reported that Fakhrizadeh had been targeted on
Friday in an attack involving at least one explosion and shooting by a
number of assailants in Absard city of Damavand County, Tehran Province.
office of Iran’s Defense Ministry said Fakhrizadeh, who headed the
ministry's Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research [SPND],
“was severely wounded in the course of clashes between his security team
and terrorists and was transferred to hospital,” where he succumbed to
his wounds and was announced as martyr.
the topic, political analyst and University of Tehran Professor, Dr.
Seyed Mohammad Marandi said “This assassination shows that western
intelligence agencies and the terrorist organizations that they support
such as the MEK along with the apartheid regime and the other regional
actors are waging war against Iranian people.”
“It is interesting when one remembers that every time a terrorist is
arrested, or a terrorist is executed or a spy is captured, Western media
immediately say that these people are innocent, and that they are
hostages; as if they have some sort of special knowledge of what goes on
behind the scenes. Yet it is these very same spies and terrorists that
accumulate knowledge and carryout murder and destruction.”
this is an act of war, and the Iranians will make sure that its
antagonists are punished as a result of the murder of this high ranking
Iranian official,” Dr. Marandi noted.
General Hossein Dehqan, military advisor to Leader of the Islamic
Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei, vowed in his tweet a
crushing response to the perpetrators.
The tweet read
“We will come down hard on those who killed Martry Mohsen Fakhrizadeh,
just like thunder and we will make them regret their deed. In the final
days of their allied gambler’s political life, the Zionists are after
intensifying pressure on Iran in order to trigger an all-out war.”
Chief of Staff Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri said in a statement
that “The assassins of martyr Fakhrizadeh will see a harsh revenge,”
promising that they will be punished. He also assured that the path
Farikhzadeh started will never stop.
analyst pointed out that “It is ironic that when Western regimes claim
that the Russians attempted to murder or assassinate an asset of theirs
in the UK, the whole of NATO, Europe and North America is up in arms.
But when an actual act of murder is carried out in Iran, Western media
outlets gloat and try to show the victim as the guilty party rather than
the terrorists and the regimes that stand behind those terrorists.”
