The scientist, who was considered the father of Iran’s nuclear programme was assassinated in broad daylight on 27 November, while he was riding in a car. The Islamic Republic claimed israel was behind the murder.
An Israeli flag with a caption reading “Thank you, Mossad” has been spotted in Tehran, the telegram channel Vahid reported. According to images posted on social media, the flag was hung on a billboard in the Iranian capital. There has been no information so far as to who may have put up the flag.
The development comes almost two weeks after Iranian authorities blamed Israeli intelligence as well as an exiled political group, the People’s Mujahedeen of Iran, for the killing of the country’s top nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. Tel Aviv has not officially commented on the accusations, while Tehran has long suspected Israeli intelligence agency Mossad of being behind a series of killings of Iranian scientists.
Several US officials appeared to confirm Iran’s hypothesis, saying the scientist was assassinated by Israeli intelligence. An anonymous Israeli official later told The New York Times that the world should “thank” Tel Aviv for the murder of Fakhrizadeh, adding that israel would continue acting in order to curtail Iran’s nuclear programme.
