Prominent Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was doomed to die.
The bodyguards accompanying him and the bullet-proof vehicle provided little defense against state terrorism.
The Israeli special service “Mossad” involved 62 people to kill the scientist. The New York Times has received confirmation from US intelligence sources that the operation was carried out by a special Israeli mob squad. The Daily Mail, citing the leak of information from Iran, writes that 12 killers of the Israeli team were deployed ahead of time in the town of Absard, which became the site of the tragedy, where Fakhrizade’s villa was located. 50 people supplied them with intelligence data, including satellite, and conducted surveillance. The scientist was awaited by four saboteurs in an off-road vehicle, four motorcyclists and two snipers.
The car that was closing Fakhrizadeh’s motorcade of three cars was literally torn to shreds by a powerful detonation of an old Nissan pickup truck, explosives were hidden in its back. Debris from cars scattered within a radius of 300 meters. After that, a flurry of fire hit the second car with the scientist. The leader of the killers dragged Fakhrizade out and made a control shot.
But, apparently, this option looked too humiliating for the Iranian security service, and on Sunday, a completely different description of the murder appeared. It is said that the Israelis used some kind of fantastic weapon that was controlled from a satellite. However, no confirmation was provided. And now the Iranians say that the enemy agents did not participate directly in the attack, and the people were shot by a robotic machine gun, which was under the remote control of the operator and was hidden in the Nissan. It is said that the scientist was hit by three bullets when he went out to see what was happening on the road. Then the pickup was blown up.
As the Daily Mail notes, Israeli agents are considered “wet workers”. Murders in other countries are dealt with by the elite Mossad unit Kidon, which means spearhead.
The reason for this provocative assassination, which infuriated the Iranians, could have been the refusal of the United States and Saudi Arabia to support Israel’s demand to strike at Iran, while Israel has already prepared for this operation in order to have time to attack before Trump leaves the White House. At the secret meeting, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived accompanied by the head of the Mossad Yossi Cohen, the US was represented by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. However, a dispute immediately arose between the Israelis and the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman. He refused to carry out the Israeli plan of attack on Iranian nuclear facilities. Middle East Eye writes that Pompeo also did not support Israel’s initiative.
The assassination of a leading Iranian scientist should have provoked Iran to retaliate. The United States knew about the direction of Israel’s killers to eliminate the Iranian scientist. A few days before the assassination, the Nimitz aircraft carrier group entered the Persian Gulf. Washington has begun to prepare for Tehran’s retaliation. But Iran has called what is happening “an Israeli trap.” Apparently, the Iranian leadership is not unanimous on how and when to take revenge on Israel.
“All enemies of Iran and their think tanks should know well that the Iranian people are too courageous and brave to leave this crime unanswered,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said. Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s advisor Hosseini Dehgan promises to strike Israel like lightning …
