Iranian Defence Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami accused Israel of having a hand in the death of nuclear physicist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh-Mahabadi earlier on Friday.

Speaking from Tehran on Friday, Hatami said he blamed the "Zionist regime and its criminal supporters" for 'their hand,' which "can be clearly seen in this criminal incident."

Hatami also played tribute to the scientist, who he said played a role in developing a coronavirus vaccine, vowing details would be released later.

"Martyr Dr Fakhrizadeh, head of the Ministry of Defence's Research and Innovation Organisation, who managed this organisation well for many years as deputy minister of defence, is the source of great services for our dear nation, both in the field of defence and in the non-defensive areas," Hatami added.

According to local reports, the scientist's car was bombed and hit with small arms fire.

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said on Twitter that he believed Israel played a ‘role’ in the attack, while the Israeli military, as well as the Israeli prime minister's office, have declined to comment on reports of the incident.

It is not yet clear if the assailants escaped the scene of the attack or were apprehended.
