Fakhrizadeh was subject to the asset freeze and travel notification provisions of the UN Security Council because the Council said the IAEA had demanded Fakhrizadeh to be interviewed and Iran refused to make him available.
Iran has given some information with respect to Fakhrizadeh’s work, which the IAEA says “are not inconsistent with its findings” but the IAEA continues to attempt to corroborate its findings.

According to a statement from the Iranian Ministry of Defense, “After a clash between the terrorists and his bodyguards, Mr. Fakhrizadeh was severely injured and rushed to the hospital. Unfortunately, the medical team’s efforts to save him were unsuccessful and minutes ago he passed away.” Three to four other people probably the gunmen were also killed in the attack.
Terrorists murdered an eminent Iranian scientist today. This cowardice—with serious indications of Israeli role—shows desperate warmongering of perpetrators
Iran calls on int’l community—and especially EU—to end their shameful double standards & condemn this act of state terror.
