The first Iranian retaliation … News of the assassination of a...

Iranian media reported, in urgent news a short while ago, that a prominent officer of the Israeli Mossad intelligence service had been assassinated in East Tel Aviv.

The Iranian Mehr Agency said that the officer was called “Fahmi Al-Hinnawi,” and that there were no official announcements by Israel confirming his death so far.

If the news is correct, doubts will hover over Iran’s involvement in the killing of the Israeli officer, in response to the assassination of the Iranian nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.

Tensions have escalated between Washington, Tehran and Israel since 2018, when the current US President Donald withdrew from the nuclear agreement concluded by his predecessor Barack Obama with Iran in 2015, and re-imposed economic sanctions on Tehran with the aim of negotiating tougher restrictions on its nuclear and missile program and on support for troops. You work for the area.

Fakhrizadeh, whom Israel describes as a major player in what it says is Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons, was killed last Friday when he was ambushed on a highway near Tehran and fired a barrage of bullets at his car.

Earlier, the US envoy on Iran, Elliott Abrams, said it was unlikely that Iran would retaliate for the assassination of the nuclear scientist before Joe Biden assumed the presidency.

Abrams stressed that Iran is “in desperate need” of easing sanctions from the United States, and that this matter will be a key element in its decision with Biden assuming the presidency from President Donald Trump on January 20.

“If they want sanctions relief, they know they need to enter some sort of negotiations after January 20, and then they’ll realize that they have to not do any activities, between now and January 20, that make sanctions relief more difficult,” Abrams added.

Religious and military leaders in Iran blamed Israel for the killing of Fakhrizadeh. The office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declined to comment on the killing.
