The EU today (Saturday) condemned the assassination of Iranian scientist Muhsin Fahrizadeh, calling the assassination a “criminal act”.
An official statement issued by the EU said that “an Iranian government official and several civilians were killed in a series of violent attacks. This is a criminal act and is contrary to the principle of respect for human rights that the EU represents.”
The statement added that “the High Representative expresses his condolences to the families of the people killed, wishing a speedy recovery to any person injured. In these uncertain periods, it is more important than ever that all parties remain calm and prevent escalation that does not benefit anyone.”
Activists of the Iranian regime held protests today (Saturday) in several centers across the country. In some of the demonstrations, Israeli and American flags were burned, along with pictures of outgoing US President Donald Trump and President-elect Joe Biden.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani this morning accused Israel of assassinating Fahrizadeh and threatened that Tehran would retaliate at the right time. “Our people are too smart to fall into the trap of the Zionist regime,” Rouhani said in a speech on Iranian television. He added that the assassination would not slow down his country’s nuclear program, saying the move was indicative of the enemy’s despair and depth of hatred.
Iran’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, also promised to take revenge on the assassination of the senior nuclear scientist yesterday. In a Twitter tweet, Khamenei wrote that Fahrizadeh’s scientific and technical work in all areas would continue.
