A Message from the Leader on the Martyrdom of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

The country’s outstanding nuclear and defense scientist, the esteemed Mr. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh has attained martyrdom at the hands of villains and criminal sell-outs.

This greatly esteemed and incredibly valuable and unique scientific building block devoted his life to the path of Allah and because of his great and ever-lasting scientific efforts his divine reward is the great status of Shahadat (martyrdom).

There are two important matter that must be taken seriously by all those who are involved in the arena:

  • The first is the investigation of this crime and the decisive punishment of its perpetrators and those who ordered it.
  • And the second is the continuation of the scientific and technological efforts made by Shaheed [Fakhrizadeh] in all of the fields in which he was active in.

I humbly congratulate – the honorable family of the Shaheed, the country’s scientific community, and all of his co-workers and students in the multiple fields in which he was active in – upon his martyrdom and send our condolences upon his loss, and we request Allah to elevate his status.

Sayyid Ali Khamenei
