TEHRAN (IQNA) – The body of martyred Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh arrived in the northeastern holy city of Mashhad on Saturday night for a procession at the holy shrine of Imam Reza (AS).

Fakhrizadeh, who headed the Iranian Defense Ministry’s Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research (SPND), was targeted on Friday in a multi-pronged attack involving at least one explosion and small fire by a number of assailants in Absard city of Damavand County, Tehran Province.

Iranian government officials and military commanders have hinted that the Israeli regime could have been behind the terror attack, vowing harsh revenge against all the criminals involved.
