Iranian officials have blamed Israel for the killing of Fakhrizadeh who led Tehran’s disbanded military nuclear program. (Mizan News Agency via AP) Iran has threatened to respond “decisively” to the assassination of nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. According to foreign news agency Reuters, an adviser to a senior Iranian official said that Iran would respond to the death of its nuclear scientist. Iran’s clerical and military rulers have blamed the Islamic Republic’s longtime enemy, Israel, for the killing. Iran has in the past accused Israel of killing several Iranian nuclear scientists since 2010. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office has declined to comment on the killing. An Israeli cabinet minister, Tzachi Hanegbi, said on Saturday he did not know who carried it out. Iranian hardline media called on Sunday for a tough revenge. The hardline Kayhan daily, whose editor-in-chief is appointed by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, called for an attack on the Israeli port city of Haifa, if an Israeli role in Fakhrizadeh’s killing is proven. The chief executive of the daily Kayhan newspaper demanded an attack on the Israeli port city of Haifa after proving Israel’s role in the assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. It should be noted that the chief executive of the newspaper was appointed by the Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The chief executive of the daily Kayhan newspaper, Sadollah Zarei wrote in an article that “the attack should be carried out in such a way that in addition to destroying the port, Israel also suffered heavy human casualties.” It should be noted that the renowned Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was shot dead near the capital, Tehran.
