When Jews Attack 115 – Victim – Iranian Scientist – Attacker – Israel

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said Tuesday that the Zionist regime of Israel is behind the assassination of an Iranian scientist.

Talking to the reporters in his weekly press briefing, Mehmanparast said Israel is responsible for orchestrating and sponsoring terrorist attacks against the Iranian scientists.

Local media reported Saturday that Dariush Rezaei, PhD of nuclear physics and a university professor, was killed by motorcyclists in front of his home in eastern Tehran.

Later reports, however, identified the victim as Dariush Rezaeinejad, a 35-year-old man who majored in electro-techniques at Tehran’s Khajeh Nasir University and worked for the Iranian Defense Ministry.

Mehmanparast said terrorists supported by Israel resort to assassination of Iranian scholars as the U.S.-led sanctions have failed to prevent Iran from making progress.

Iranian officials have blamed the United States and Israel for being behind the terror acts against Iranian scholars.
