TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement offered condolences to the Iranian nation on the martyrdom of top scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, saying the Islamic Republic will reserve the right to punish the perpetrators of the terror attack.
In a statement on Saturday, Ansarullah’s Political Bureau added that martyrdom of such a high-profile scientist was a loss to the entire Muslim world.
Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement also strongly condemned the terror act.
“We condemn this heinous attack and see that the response to this crime is in the hands of those concerned in Iran,” Hezbollah’s second-in-command Sheikh Naim Qassem said.
Fakhrizadeh was assassinated by unknown gunmen in a small city east of Tehran on Friday evening.
After sustaining injuries from a car explosion and bullets, the top scientist was taken to the hospital with a helicopter but succumbed to injuries a few hours later.
