He was shot by the attackers in the car itself near tehran on friday.
In a statement on Friday, Iran’s defence ministry said: “Armed terrorists targeted a vehicle carrying Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, head of the ministry’s research and innovation organisation.
“After a clash between the terrorists and his bodyguards, Mr Fakhrizadeh was severely injured and rushed to hospital.
“Unfortunately, the medical team’s efforts to save him were unsuccessful and minutes ago he passed away.”
Iran’s U.N. ambassador Majid Takht Ravanchi , expects the UN secretary general and other 15 members of the Secretary council to ‘ strongly condemn this inhumane terrorist act and take necessary measures against its perpetrators’.
He also mentioned in the letter to the leader of the United Nation that his country reserved the right to “take all necessary measures” to defend itself and indications were given as an Isreaeli attack as the scientist has long been a target of Israel’s Mossad.
“Terrorists murdered an eminent Iranian scientist today, This cowardice — with serious indications of Israeli role — shows desperate warmongering of perpetrators.” Iran’s foreign minister wrote on twitter .
