A senior Iranian official took the Zionist regime responsible for directing and sponsoring terrorist attacks on Iranian scientists, including the assassination of the country’s young scientist, Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan Behdast, this morning.
“The bomb was a magnetic bomb similar to the bombs that were earlier used for the assassination of (the Iranian) scientists and actually the job was done by the Zionists,” Secretary of Tehran province’s Security Council Safar Ali Baratlou told FNA on Wednesday.
“Zionists seem to be trying to create a security atmosphere in Iran on the threshold of (parliamentary) elections to decrease the people’ turnout in the polls,” he added.
Ahmadi Roshan Behdast was killed in a terrorist bomb blast in a Northern neighborhood in Tehran on Wednesday morning. The magnetic bomb which was planted by an unknown motorcyclist under the car of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan also wounded two others in Seyed Khandan neighborhood in Northern Tehran.
Ahmadi Roshan, 32, was a graduate of oil industry university and a deputy director of Natanz uranium enrichment facility for commercial affairs.
The blast took place on the second anniversary of the martyrdom of Iranian university professor and nuclear scientist, Massoud Ali Mohammadi, was also assassinated in a terrorist bomb attack in Tehran in January 2010.
The today bombing method was similar to the 2010 terrorist bomb attacks against the then university professor, Fereidoun Abbassi Davani – who is now the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization – and his colleague Majid Shahriari.
Abbassi Davani survived the attack, while Shahriari was martyred.
An Iranian court of revolution in August sentenced to death the terrorist who assassinated Ali Mohammadi in 2010.
Majid Jamali Fashi pleaded guilty to murdering Massoud Ali Mohammadi.
Tehran’s Public and Revolution Courts Prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi announced at the time that Jamali Fashi had been trained in Mossad’s military bases.
Jafari Dolatabadi also stated that Jamali Fashi had received $120,000 from the Zionist regime to carry out the assassination and then returned to Iran.
Majid Jamali Fashi said in his confessions aired by the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) on January 11, 2011, “I became acquainted with a number of Israeli officers on the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway after we had a visit to Israel and I received different training courses, including chasing, running, counter-chasing and techniques for planting bombs in a car.”
The terrorist added that he had also been trained in that Israeli garrison how to carry out bomb attacks while riding a motorcycle.
Jamali Fashi also said that he had received psychological and operational briefings for assassinating Dr. Ali Mohammadi and had exercised the bombing plot for killing the Iranian scientist several times at the Israeli garrison.
He also mentioned during his confessions that small models of Dr. Mohammadi’s house and his house surroundings were used during his training course.
