SEC services obliged to identify those behind assassination

TEHRAN, Nov. 27 (MNA) – Condemning the assassination of Iranian scientists, Iran’s Judiciary Chief said that the intelligence and security services and the relevant judicial authorities are obliged to identify those behind the assassination.

"Once again, the criminal elements, affiliated with foreigners and international Zionism, with the sinister aim of confronting the scientific progress of the country, targeted and martyred one of the prominent figures, managers and scientists of Islamic Iran," said Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi.

"Since the occurrence of these unfortunate incidents and the loss of the scientists are a sad and irreparable loss for our society, and the action taken is a great crime and the repetition of such incidents is not acceptable at all, therefore, the intelligence and security services and the relevant judicial authorities are obliged to identify and prosecute all the perpetrators of this crime, including the commanders, planners and supervisors as soon as possible," he added.

Fakhrizadeh-Mahavadi was targeted on Friday in a multi-pronged attack involving at least one explosion and small fire by a number of assailants in Absard city of Damavand County, Tehran province.

According to the Public Relations Office of the Ministry of Defense, the prominent physicist, who headed its Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research (SPND), was sent to hospital immediately but was martyred due to the wounds he had sustained in the terrorist assault.

During the conflict, the security team protecting Iranian scientist were also injured and transferred to hospital.
