  • Leader lauds late Iranian scientist Fakhrizadeh

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei paid tribute to late Iranian nuclear scientist and researcher Dr. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh for his hard-working spirit and high level of proficiency in science.

According to Tasnim news agency, Ayatollah Khamenei had a meeting with the family of the nuclear and defense scientist, Fakhrizadeh, who was assassinated on November 27, 2020.

In the gathering, the Leader praised Dr. Fakhrizadeh for gaining great scientific and technical prominence and for his hard-working efforts.

Ayatollah Khamenei also noted that one of the signs of the martyr’s spiritual purity and modesty was that he is highly revered in the public and that many young people regret not having known him before his martyrdom.

Last month, the Leader awarded the 'Medal of Nasr (Victory)' to Fakhrizadeh, who was assassinated in an unmanned attack in a small city northeast of Tehran.

In a message after the incident, the Leader called on all relevant administrators to “investigate this crime and firmly prosecute its perpetrators and its commanders” and “to continue the martyr’s scientific and technological efforts in all the sectors where he was active.”
