In the latest news coming in from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), it has been found that the UAE have denounced the “heinous” assassination of one Mohsen Fakhrizadeh who was Iran’s top nuclear scientist and the man who was recently assassinated a few days ago. In contrast the foreign ministry issued a statement on Twitter which reads “The UAE condemns the assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh and (calls) on all parties to exercise self-restraint to avoid dragging the region into new levels of instability and threat to peace,”.
In contrast, the statement highlighted Fakhrizadeh’s killing as a “heinous crime”. Fakhrizadeh, who has been titled by Israel as the “father” of Iran’s nuclear programmed and was fatally wounded on Friday when the assailants targeted the nuclear scientists car and in turn engaged in a gunfight with his bodyguards outside of Tehran, as per the Iran’s defence ministry.
He has later succumbed to his wounds and has triggered anger and grief across the nation. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has stressed the country will seek its revenge in “due time” and not be rushed into a “trap”. He further out the blame on the “the wicked hands of the global arrogance, with the usurper Zionist regime as the mercenary”. Iran generally uses the term “global arrogance” to refer to the UAE. The strongly-worded UAE condemnation comes only weeks after the Gulf nation normalized its ties with Israel.
