The New York Times reports that Israel stands behind the assassination of famous Iranian nuclear physicist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, citing its sources of special services.
“Three officers of the special services have declared that Israel is behind the attack on the scientist. It’s not clear to what extent the US could have known about this in advance, but the two countries are close allies and have been exchanging intelligence information regarding Iran for a long time. The White House has refused to comment,” the newspaper reported.
Earlier, it was reported that Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, who was head of the Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research (SPND), died in the hospital from injuries that he had received after a terrorist attack. The scholar became a victim of multilateral attacks when a few terrorists organized an explosion in Absard. According to reports, the assassins bombed another car before setting Fakhrizadeh’s car on fire, killing a few people who still haven’t been identified.
