President Hassan Rouhani directly accused Israel of killing Iran’s top nuclear scientist Mohsin Fakhrizadeh. He said that this action will not slow down the Iranian nuclear program and he will avenge it. The country’s supreme leader Importullah Khamnai also said that after the assassination, Iran’s priority would be to punish the criminals and those who ordered them.
Khanmei did not elaborate about the sentence. Whereas President Hassan Rouhani said that the killing of nuclear scientist shows how upset Israel is and hates us. He has spoken of taking revenge action after this incident. Let us tell you that there is no information about the arrest of an attacker after the death of Fakhrizadeh in an ambush by gunmen in the city of Absurd, adjacent to Tehran.
Rouhani appealed to the United Nations and the Security Council to condemn the killing of its top scientist. On the other hand, Iranian Ambassador to the United Nations Majid Takht Ravanchi wrote a letter to the UN Secretary-General and the Security Council and openly warned the US and Israel, we will protect our interests. “This murder is a violation of international laws which was carried out with the aim of spreading unrest in the area,” he said.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has appealed to all parties in this case to exercise restraint and avoid increasing tension in the Middle East. Guterres spokesperson Farhan Haq said that we appeal to avoid any action which could increase tension in the area.
Iran’s top scientist Mohsin Fakhrizadeh was the most important part of the country’s nuclear program. America, Israel, NATO and Arab countries have been against this program. That is why he was at the top of the hit list of Israeli intelligence agency Mossad. The International Atomic Energy Agency told Iran several times that they wanted to interrogate Mohsin, but Iran never approved it.
The United States has banned four companies from China and Russia supporting Iran’s missile program amid continuing tensions in the Gulf. Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo announced this, saying that Iran’s missile program remains the subject of ‘nuclear proliferation concerns’.
Among the companies banned, Chengdu-based New Materials Company Ltd. of China. And Jibo Elim Trade Company Ltd. And Russia’s Nilco Group or Neil Pham Khazar Company and Centers Holding and Joint Stock Company Elecon. According to the US, these companies provided sensitive technology and goods for Iran’s missile program.
Israel’s concerns about Iran have increased due to the change of power in the US presidential election. In fact, the newly elected President Joe Biden in the US has announced the withdrawal of the Iran nuclear deal after coming to power. Whereas at the moment Trump has been taking decisions entirely in favor of Israel. In such a situation, Israel is now worried about Biden’s next move.
