Iran has confirmed the assassination of its top nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadhe.

Fakhrizadhe was an Iranian scientist and the architect behind the Islamic Republic’s military nuclear program.

He was the head of the Amad project in the Iranian ministry of defense, which focused on developing a nuclear bomb until 2003.

In a tweet, Hossein Salami, commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said: “The assassination of nuclear scientists is the most obvious violent confrontation of the imperialist system to prevent us from gaining access to modern science.”

In 2018, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu outed Fakhrizadhe publicly, dubbing him “the father of the Iranian nuclear bomb.”

The outing came after Israel exposed the Iranian archives, which Mossad captured in Tehran.
