Iraqi intelligence departments have long expected the “assassination operation”?
The secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council said that Iranian intelligence agencies earlier believed that Fahrizad might be assassinated, but did not raise their vigilance.
The huge earthquake caused by the killing of Iranian nuclear scientist Fahrizadeh continues. According to a report by the Russian Satellite News Agency on the 30th, Ali Shamhani, secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, said that Iranian intelligence agencies earlier believed that Fahrizad might be assassinated, but did not be vigilant.
Ali Shamhani reportedly said in an interview with Iranian IRINN TV: “For 20 years, the enemy has been trying to kill Fahrizad, but it has not succeeded before. This time, Iranian intelligence predicted that Fahrizad might be assassinated and estimated where it might be.
However, the report said that Shamhani said that the intelligence department had not been vigilant.
In addition, it is reported that the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council said that the organizers of the murder against Fahrizad have adopted a completely new method of assassination this time.
Senior Iranian nuclear physicist Muhsin Fahrizad was killed in an attack near the capital Tehran on the 27th. According to Iranian media reports, Fahrizad’s car exploded on a street in the village of Abu Shad 60 kilometers northeast of Tehran on the afternoon of the 27th, followed by shooting, killing many people. At present, no organization or individual has announced that the attack has been carried out.
Fahrizad is the head of the nuclear program of the Iranian Ministry of Defense. After the attack, Iranian President Rouhani said on the 28th that the terrorist attack was the result of the enemy’s inability to face Iran’s scientific progress and successive setbacks in politics and other fields. The attack exposed their viciousness and hostility. Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei said on the same day that the perpetrators of terrorist crimes should be punished.
The Permanent Representative of Iran to the United Nations, Majid Takht-Ravanshi, wrote to the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the current month’s presidency of the Security Council on the 27th, saying that there were “clear signs of Israeli responsibility” for the assassination. In the past decade, many top Iranian scientists have been assassinated. Israeli cabinet member Chashi Hanegbi told the Israeli media on the 28th that he did not know who caused the attack on Fahrizad
