Iran prepares terror retaliation
Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 13 / Trend D. Khatinoglu/
Iran is preparing to retaliate against Israel and other enemies' agents who plan the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists, regarding Iran's information supervision abroad, especially among regional countries, an anonymous top security official told Fars news agency.
On January 11, an unknown motorcyclist attached a magnetic bomb to the car of the deputy marketing director at Iran's Natanz nuclear facility Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan near a college building of Allameh Tabatabaei University in Tehran. Ahmadi Roshan was immediately killed and his driver, who had sustained injuries, died a few hours later in a hospital.
The security official told Fars News Agency that Iran has great opportunity to kill the enemies' agents. "They should never sense security anywhere," he added.
Roshan's assassination is at least the fourth targeted hit against a member of Iran's nuclear brain trust for two years.
Earlier, the hard-line Iranian newspaper, Keyhan, called for retaliation against Israel, a day after killing of Roshan. Iran's top Ayatollah Ali Khamenei leader blamed Israel and the U.S.
The U.S. and its allies suspect that Iran is producing nuclear weapons. Iran says that the program is for peaceful purposes only.
