FARS News Agency – December 29, 2010
Fouz, a genius university student, had discovered a new formula for producing peaceful nuclear energy and had been awarded by several international scientific festivals.
He had released his new uranium enrichment formula in a number of western journals.
A member of Fouz’s family told FNA reporter in Baghdad that the young scientist was targeted by unknown gunmen in New Baghdad neighborhood when he was on his way back home.
Earlier reports had shown Mossad’s involvement in the assassination of more than 350 Iraqi nuclear scientists as well as more than 300 university professors, and the attack on Mohammad al-Fouz was the most recent case in a chain of attacks carried out in recent years.
Mossad has also played a major role in the assassination of several Iranian nuclear scientists in recent months.
Two Iranian university professors Fereidoon Abbasi Davani and Majid Shahriari were assassinated in separate terrorist bomb attacks here in Tehran on November 29 with the latter killed immediately after the blast.
Another Iranian university professor and nuclear scientist, Massoud Ali Mohammadi, was also assassinated in a terrorist bomb attack in Tehran in January.
Iranian officials took the Zionist regime of Israel and US hirelings inside Iran responsible for the terrorist operation.
Three days after the attack, Iranian Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi announced that his forces have arrested a number of perpetrators.
“With the arrest of these people, we have found new clues to arrest the other elements,” Moslehi added.
“The three spy agencies of Mossad, CIA and MI6 have played a role in these attacks,” Moslehi added.
The Iranian intelligence minister added that the individuals who cooperated with these espionage services were part of an extensive organization and planned to carry out more attacks but they were arrested.
Iranian Interior Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar had underlined that the US, Israeli and British spy agencies have been directly involved in the recent terrorist attacks against the country’s scientists.
“As regards the recent terrorist moves, the involvement of Mossad, CIA, MI6 can clearly be seen,” Najjar told reporters earlier in December.
Earlier this month, Iran announced that security forces have arrested a number of perpetrators of the recent terrorist attacks on the country’s scientists and university professors.
Najjar told reporters at the time that the confessions made by the arrested terrorists indicated Israel’s direct role in the attacks.
“The world Zionism and their arrogant agents, like Mossad, as well as certain European countries are angry at Iran’s progress, and they, thus, resort to terrorist measures against Iranian scientists,” Najjar stated at the time.
