Fakhrizadeh was head of the research center of new technology in the elite Revolutionary Guards. He is considered one of the masterminds of Iran’s controversial nuclear programme.

“Unfortunately, the medical team did not succeed in reviving him, and a few minutes ago, this manager and scientist achieved the high status of martyrdom after years of effort and struggle,” a statement by Iran’s armed forces carried by state media said.

Iranian defence minister, Brigadier General Amir Hatami said the assassination displayed “the depth of enemies’ hatred” towards the country.
