Ghazanfar Roknabadi said that the biggest beneficiary of this terrorist act was Zionist regime of Israel.
In an interview to Al-Alam he added that “Shateri was martyred while he was coming back from Damascus, and we will investigate his assassination.”
“The news reported by the group called ‘Free Army,’ claiming that Shateri was martyred by Israeli air strike in Jamaryatwo weeks ago, is not true at all and he was martyred in Reef Damascus.”
Iranian Ambassador to Beirutemphasized that “the Zionist regime used its agents to martyr Shateri especially because he was responsible for the reconstruction of Lebanese region destroyed by Israeli invasion in Lebanon in 2006.”
