'Iran to sue Israel over scientist hit'
Iran says it will exploit all its resources to condemn Israel and bring the regime to justice over its terror efforts against Iranian nuclear scientists, Press TV reported.
"The issue that we will actively pursue is the condemnation of this illegal regime (Israel) and its punishment as the perpetrator of crimes against humanity and our scientists," Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said at his weekly press briefing on Tuesday.
"We will definitely utilize all our means and capabilities to follow up the case in international legal bodies," he said.
We will also pursue a legal case for the Israeli terror efforts using evidence and documentations compiled on the issue, he added.
The Iranian spokesperson also condemned Western support of the Israeli regime in sponsoring and carrying out acts of terrorism.
"That the Zionist regime (Israel) officially announces that it has had a hand in such terror efforts is indicative of an ongoing state terrorism and we regret that Western countries support such illegitimate acts by Israel."
Mehmanparast's remarks came in response to a question about Iran's legal pursuits against the assassination of Iranian nuclear physics scientist Massoud Ali-Mohammadi.
Dr. Ali-Mohammadi, a lecturer at the University of Tehran, was killed when a remote-controlled bomb detonated near his house in the north of the Iranian capital, Tehran, in July 2010.
Iran's Intelligence Ministry said in a statement released on Monday that it has arrested the main perpetrators in connection with the assassination and dismantles a network comprising of Israeli-trained spies and terrorists following extensive security operations.
It said that Israeli intelligence service Mossad has used bases in certain European and non-European countries as well as Iran's neighboring states in an attempt to achieve its inhuman and non-Islamic goals, including the assassination of Dr. Ali-Mohammadi.
