BREAKING: Iranian media reporting that high level nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh assassinated [View all]

Ali Arouzi
NBC News Tehran Bureau Chief & correspondent

BREAKING: Iranian media reporting that high level nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh has been assassinated. Widely referred to as Iran’s Robert Oppenheimer. He is by far the most important Iranian nuclear scientist to be assassinated to date. Netanyahu had mentioned him by name

Fakhrizadeh is about as high level a nuclear scientist as your going to find in Iran. He was also a high ranking IRGC officer and regarded in Iran expert in his field.

This is the scene where the apparent assassination took place in Damavand east of Tehran. Reports that Fakhrizadeh taken to hospital by helicopter. News outlets calling him a martyr. Iranian officials are almost certainly going to say this has US & Israeli hallmarks all over it.
