Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has said that the killing of the country's senior nuclear scientist will not slow down the country's nuclear program.


Hasan Rouhani accused Israel of killing top nuclear scientist Mohsin Fakhrizadeh and said that these steps show how upset he is and how much he hates us.


Till a statement was issued, Hasan Rouhani said that the space left vacant by the killing of Fakhrizadeh will be filled by his colleagues and students. He said that this incident has not broken the spirits of scientists and Iranian youth, rather it has strengthened them to move forward on the path of progress of the country.


Iran had earlier appealed to the UN Secretary-General and the Security Council to condemn the assassination of its top nuclear scientist Mohsin Fakhrizadeh.


According to the information received so far, Fakhrizadeh was ambushed by gunmen in the city of Absard, adjacent to the capital Tehran. However, so far no news of an attacker has been caught.


Ambassador to the United Nations of Iran Majid Takht Ravanchi said the killing of Mohsin Fakhrizadeh was a clear violation of international laws, which was carried out with the aim of creating unrest in the region.


At the same time, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has appealed for restraint in this matter.


According to Reuters, Guterres spokesman Farhan Haq said on Friday, "We have noted the news of the killing of an Iranian nuclear scientist near Tehran today. We urge restraint and avoid any action that the region Stress can increase. "


Other Iranian authorities have accused Israel of murder and warned of revenge.


Israel has not yet responded to this, but it has previously accused Mohsin Fakhrizadeh of being the mastermind of a secret nuclear weapons program.


What is the whole matter?

Iran's Defense Ministry had informed that one of its top nuclear scientist Mohsin Fakhrizadeh has been killed. After the attack Fakhrizadeh was taken to the local hospital but his life could not be saved.


Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Jawad Zarif condemned Fakhrizadeh's murder, calling it a 'state sponsored terror incident'.


Intelligence agencies of Western countries believe that Mohsin Fakhrizadeh was behind Iran's intelligence program.


Foreign diplomats called him 'the father of the Iranian atomic bomb'. Iran has been saying that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.


Between 2010 and 2012, Iran's four nuclear scientists were murdered and Iran blamed Israel for this.


How was the murder?

Iran's Ministry of Defense issued a statement on Friday, saying, "Armed terrorists targeted the car carrying Mohsin Fakhrizadeh, head of the Department of Research and Innovation of the Ministry of Defense."


According to the ministry, he was badly injured in the skirmish between the militants and Fakhrizadeh's bodyguards and was taken to a local hospital but unfortunately the medical team's efforts to save him failed. "


According to Iranian news agency Fars, eyewitnesses first heard the sound of explosions and then firing from machine guns.


According to the agency, eyewitnesses have also said that three-four extremists have been killed.


Israel's hand?

Iran's Foreign Minister Jawad Zarif tweeted, "Terrorists have killed a prominent Iranian scientist today. This ruthless action, which has serious indications of Israel's involvement, shows the intent to kill the killers." "


Zarif said, "Iran urges international communities, especially the European Union, to end their shameful double stance and condemn this terrorist move."


He said in another tweet, "Iran is once again a victim of terrorism. Terrorists have brutally murdered a great Iranian scholar. Our heroes have always faced terrorism for stability and security in the world and our region." It is the law of Allah to punish those who do wrong.


The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) of the Iranian Army has said that Iran will surely avenge the killing of its scientist.


Major General Hussein Salami of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps said, "There is a clear effort to kill nuclear scientists and prevent us from reaching modern science."


Who was Mohsin Fakhrizadeh?

Mohsin Fakhrizadeh was Iran's foremost nuclear scientist and a senior IRGC official. According to security experts from Western countries, he was very powerful in Iran and he had a major role in Iran's nuclear weapons program.


Israel claimed to have obtained some intelligence documents in the year 2018, according to which Mohsin started Iran's nuclear weapons program.


At the time, Netanyahu told Mohsin Fakhrizadeh in a press conference the key scientist of Iran's nuclear program, saying, "Remember that name."


In 2015, the New York Times compared Mohsin Fakhrizadeh to J. Robert Openheimer. Openheimer was the scientist who pioneered the Manhattan Project, which produced the first atomic bomb during World War II.


Israel has not yet reacted to Fakhrizadeh's assassination.
