Another Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps engineer, Said Thamardar Mutlak was allegedly assassinated.
According to Iranian local media, Mutlak died recently in the city of Shiraz in Iran and that he was a “Shahid,” or martyr.
The IRGC however did not disclose the nature of Mutlak’s death and did not name any assailants.
“Cowardly assassination of heroes of our scientific prowess didn’t help behind-the-curtain terrorists to achieve their goals,” said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Nasser Kanaani but did not mention Mutlak specifically.
News of Mutlak’s death followed an announcement from the Iranian Intelligence Ministry claiming that “a network from the spy agency of the Zionist regime who were sent to the country for terrorist operations” were arrested.
Last month, three other Iranian officials from related defense industries also died under mysterious circumstances.
