Tehran, Nov 30 - Iran's Intelligence Ministry announced today that it has found clues about the murderers of Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, which it will later release to the public.
The entity's note, reproduced by the Mehr agency, also sends its condolences to Fakhrizadeh's family and friends. This Friday the Iranian nuclear physicist died in a hospital after being shot by terrorists in the city of Absard, Tehran province.
Several of the members of the Iranian scientist's security team suffered injuries and are still hospitalized.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani assured that this crime will not go unpunished, although the response will be executed in due time and in a timely and adequate manner.
In the president's opinion, the brutal assassination confirms the fear of Iran's enemies of a reduction in pressure against the Islamic Republic and changes in the global situation.
Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Mohammad Yavad Zarif asserted that the indications lead to another conspiracy by Israel with the support of terrorists.
Fajrizade is not the first Iranian nuclear scientist to suffer from US-Israeli hostility, while others have died in similar circumstances under the leadership of Israel's intelligence service (Mossad) and the US CIA. (Text and photo: PL)
