Nicosia, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 30th Nov, 2020 ) :An exiled opposition group, the People's Mujahedeen of Iran, on Monday rejected as "rancour and lies" Tehran's accusation that it was involved in nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh's killing.
In Tehran, Rear-Admiral Ali Shamkhani, Iran's Supreme National Security Council secretary, charged Monday that the Mujahedeen were "certainly" involved, along with "the Zionist regime and the Mossad", referring to the Israeli government and its spy agency.
Fakhrizadeh was fatally wounded Friday outside the capital as assailants targeted his car and engaged in a gunfight with his bodyguards, according to the defence ministry.
The Mujahedeen, in a statement, dismissed "Shamkhani's rage, rancour, and lies" against the outlawed group, while claiming credit for past revelations on Iran's nuclear programme and previously secret sites.
"For the first time in 2004, the PMOI (People's Mujahedeen) identified Mohsen Fakhrizadeh as the official in charge of the regime's bomb-making apparatus," it said.
