Iran's supreme leader's adviser Hossein Dehgan said the country will avenge the murder of a high-ranking nuclear scientist and one of the founders of Iran's nuclear program, Muhsin Fakhrizadeh. This was reported by the Mehr agency, RIA Novosti reports.

“We will lightning down upon the murderers of the martyr,” Dehgan promised.

Iran blames Israel for the murder of the physicist. This statement was made earlier on November 28 by the head of state, Hassan Rouhani. He promised that this crime would not affect the development of the nuclear industry in the country.

Also, Iran's Permanent Representative to the UN, Majid Takht-Ravanchi, warned Israel and the United States against “adventures” after the assassination of Fakhrizadeh. In his address to the UN Secretary General, the diplomat noted that Iran reserves the right to take all necessary measures “to protect its people and its interests.”

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif previously announced the Israeli trace in the murder of Fakhrizadeh on his Twitter account. He also accused Western countries of double standards and called on the international community to condemn this crime.

It became known on November 27 that Fakhrizade was the victim of a terrorist attack in the Absard settlement near the Iranian capital. It is noted that first a suicide bomber was blown up at the scene, and then the scientist's car was fired upon by other attackers. Several people were killed in the attack. We can also talk about Fakhrizade's relatives.
