TEHRAN (IQNA) – Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf described assassination of a top scientist as a sign of the enemies’ fear of Iran’s growing power.


Addressing an open session of the Parliament on Sunday, Ghalibaf said the adversaries once again resorted to terrorism to act against the Iranian nation.

He said the brave nation of Iran has been facing such acts for four decades but experience shows that the people of the country have moved on the path of the martyrs every time more powerfully than before.

The Parliament speaker meanwhile underlined that taking revenge on those behind the terrorist attack will remain a duty of all related bodies in the country, adding that the enemies will regret their terrorist move after Iran’s strong response.

Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, a senior nuclear and defense scientist, 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.

Iranian officials have vowed a severe punishment for those behind the terrorist attack.
