Iranian Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi says the Islamic Republic has succeeded in recognizing all plots and perpetrators in connection with the assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist.
On July 12, Massoud Ali-Mohammadi, the Iranian nuclear physics scientist, was killed in a remote-controlled bomb attack in the Iranian capital, Tehran.
The bombing took place near the professor’s home in northern Tehran.
“All conspiracies and agents behind the assassination of Massoud Ali-Mohammadi, who had been misused by foreign intelligence services, have been recognized and further information will be announced in the future in order to bring more disgrace on foreign intelligence services,” IRNA quoted Moslehi as saying on Tuesday.
He added that Iran has found “new clues” on the assassination of Dr. Ali-Mohammadi, a lecturer at the University of Tehran, which would be announced later.
The Iranian minister emphasized that intelligence services of arrogant powers such as Israeli intelligence service Mossad, NATO, the US and Britain are still continuing their activities.
On January 12, Moslehi said the Islamic Republic managed to overcome the so-called strong Israeli intelligence service Mossad supported by the US and Western states.
He added that Iranian forces penetrated into the depth of Mossad information system and recognized and dismantled its different networks.
The Iranian minister’s comments came after Iran’s Intelligence Ministry announced that it had dismantled an Israeli spy network and arrested the main perpetrators of Ali-Mohammadi’s assassination.
One of the detained terrorists, Majid Jamali-Fash, confessed that he had received training in a military base outside Tel Aviv.
