Iranian Scientist Assassinated, Tensions Spike in the Middle East
Scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, a major contributor to Iran's nuclear programs, was killed in a roadside ambush on November 27, in the outskirts of Tehran in broad daylight. Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, suspects Israel's involvement in the ambush causing tensions in the middle east. Reportedly, Fakhrizadeh was indirectly involved in the uranium enrichment process. Analysts believe that his death is linked to the impending administrative change in America.
