Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was Iran’s most senior nuclear scientist.

Fakhrizadeh took charge of Iran’s Physics Research Centre in 1988, and then became head of research at its successor, the Institute of Applied Physics.

Western Intelligence suspected that he was leading a secret nuclear weapons programme.

He 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.

Fakhrizadeh was transferred to a nearby hospital where he died due to the wounds he had sustained in the terrorist assault.

Fakhrizadeh’s name was specifically mentioned in Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s presentation about Iran’s nuclear programme in May 2018.

Four Iranian nuclear scientists were assassinated between 2010 and 2012. In every case, Iran has accused Israel of complicity in the killings.
