"When the Americans and the Zionist regime [of Israel] realized that they cannot stand against the resolve of the Iranian nation and [after they] witnessed our nuclear achievements they resorted to assassinating [our] scientists," he told reporters on Sunday.
The Speaker of the Majlis (parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, Jalali, went on to add that these violent measures taken by the enemy indicate the depth of their desperation.
"[Daryoush] Rezaienejad's assassination was a blind operation in which an innocent individual was gunned down on the street, "Jalali was quoted by IRNA.
