The Iranian Fars News Agency published new details on the killing of senior Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, which has been attributed to Israel, claiming that he was assassinated by a remote-controlled machine gun that was detonated after the attack.
According to the report, Fakhrizadeh was driving with his wife in a bullet-proof vehicle on Friday morning, accompanied by a convoy of armored cars.
At some point, the convoy drove ahead of Fakhrizadeh in order to secure the location he was headed to. Gunfire was heard, leading Fakhrizadeh to pull over by the side of the road, as he thought the car had malfunctioned. Shots were than fired from a remote-controlled machine gun that was mounted on a Nissan car stationed some 150 meters away. One of the bullets hit Fakhrizadeh in the back, the report said, adding that the car had exploded several minutes later.
