Iran Foils Several Assassination Attempts against N. Scientists

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian intelligence and military forces have defused several assassination plots on the lives of the country’s nuclear scientists, a senior nuclear official disclosed on Sunday, adding that Iran has intensified security measures to protect its scientists.

“At present the military and intelligence forces are doing their duty and they havediscovered some assassination (plots),” Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Fereidoun Abbasi said in Tehran on Sunday.

He said that assassination threats against the lives of Iran’s nuclear scientists were not limited only to those five scientists who were assassinated between 2010 and 2012, alluding that more scientists have also faced such threats which were foiled by the Iranian security and intelligence forces.

In the fifth attack of its kind in two years, terrorists killed a 32-year-old Iranian scientist, Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, and his driver on January 11, 2012.

The blast took place on the second anniversary of the martyrdom of Iranian university professor and nuclear scientist, Massoud Ali Mohammadi, who was also assassinated in a terrorist bomb attack in Tehran in January 2010.

The assassination method used in the bombing 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. While Abbasi Davani survived the attack, Shahriari was martyred.

Another Iranian scientist, Dariush Rezaeinejad, was also assassinated through the same method on 23 July 2011.
