Assassination “without assassins”

On February 6, Rear Adm. Ali Fadavi — deputy commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said: Scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was assassinated with 11 security staff near the capital Tehran on November 27.

AFP quoted Mr. Favadi as saying on Iranian media as saying: The machine gun mounted on a Nissan car was aimed directly at Mr. Fakhrizadeh and shot 13 times. Its aim was so precise that his wife was only 25 cm in the same car, but not injured. According to Admiral Fadavi, the gun is controlled by artificial intelligence technology via satellite, aimed at using a modern camera.

Iran’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, called on the need to properly punish those behind Fakhrizadeh’s assassination. The President of Iran accused Israel of being behind the assassination. The reason is believed to be that Israel has long accused Mr. Fakhrizadeh of hosting Iran’s military nuclear program in the early 2000s.

The Iranian nuclear scientist “suspected” was assassinated with a machine gun controlled via satellite in late November.

However, up to now, Israel has neither confirmed nor denied that it was related or not to Fakhrizadeh’s death. However, after this incident, Israel also put its embassies on the highest guard and warned that Israeli targets abroad could be attacked by Iran.
