Hamas Condemns Assassination of Iranian Scientist

In a phone conversation with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Haniyeh said the assassination reflects a criminal mentality that allows murder in broad daylight.  

Fakhrizadeh was assassinated by unknown gunmen in a small city east of Tehran on Friday evening.

After sustaining injuries from a car explosion and bullets, Fakhrizadeh was taken to the hospital with a helicopter, but succumbed to injuries a few hours later.

In a message on Saturday, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei paid tribute to Mohsen Fakhrizadeh as an eminent scientists in the nuclear and defense fields, adding, “All relevant administrators must seriously place two crucial matters on their agendas: First to investigate this crime and firmly prosecute its perpetrators and its commanders, second to continue the martyr’s scientific and technological efforts in all the sectors where he was active.”
