The Zionist regime has perpetrated a series of sabotage and cowardly terrorist attacks in Iran in recent years, the most recent of which was the murder of Martyr Hassan Sayyad Khodaei, a colonel serving in the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
Despite the Zionist regime’s refusal to comment publicly on this atrocious terrorist act, The New York Times claimed that Israeli authorities told the Biden administration that Khodaei’s assassination was the work of Mossad agents.
According to legal experts, this horrific assassination constitutes the state sponsor of terrorism under international law and conventions.
In addition, last Wednesday, a drone detonated at a building in the Parchin military technology facility, killing one person and critically wounding another. No country has yet claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack at Parchin.
The attacks’ pattern, on the other hand, is consistent with prior Israeli covert strikes against Iranian and Lebanese targets, which have been carried out ruthlessly in recent years.
Even though the Zionist regime has avoided openly admitting responsibility for these terrorist assaults, the data clearly indicates Tel Aviv’s complicity in their occurrence.
The Iranian peaceful nuclear program is one of the primary impetus for the Israeli terrorist regime’s sabotage activities. Iran’s nuclear advancements have been Israel’s worst nightmare since the Vienna negotiations started last year. Since Israel believes the US and its Western allies would be incapable of enforcing their demands on Iran, Tehran would be allowed to enrich uranium and develop its nuclear technology without foreign pressure.
The Zionists are also anxious that Washington and the EU’s attention on the Ukraine-Russia raging conflict would leave Israel alone in the face of Iran’s nuclear conundrum. The Israeli authorities are increasingly anxious about the Iranian nuclear dossier, as seen by Benny Gantz, the Zionist Minister of War’s recent diplomatic tours and the escalation in Tel Aviv’s bellicose rhetoric. Furthermore, the Israeli army’s recent military manoeuvres in Cypriot waters signal Israel’s trepidation and fear regarding Iranian military capabilities.
The persistent fear of Tel Aviv vis-à-vis Iran’s expanding supremacy in the Middle East is evident in the Zionist media’s gaffe on the assassination, identity, and military tasks of Martyr Khodaei: “The assassination was likely not related to the Iranian nuclear programme, but rather to security issues in Syria,” according to the Israeli daily Ma’ariv.
According to Israeli news station 13, Mr Khodaei was suspected of supplying advanced and precise missile technology to Lebanon’s Hezbollah.
According to other Israeli media outlets, Colonel Khodaei was allegedly orchestrating attacks against Zionist officials across the world.
In the current scenario, the Zionists naïvely assume that Colonel Khodaei’s outrageous assassination would elicit an irrational and impulsive response from Iran, which could potentially derail the Vienna nuclear negotiations.
However, Iran has lately given a stern warning to the Zionists that any aggressive action would be met with a prompt and direct response.
In light of the shifting geopolitical dynamics in the Middle East, it is quite natural for Tehran to react to the callous assassination of Colonel Khodae according to its chosen time and place.
But one thing is certain: Iran’s policy of taking vengeance on its enemies.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi declared, “I exhort our security officials to follow up on this matter seriously, and I have no doubt that we will exact retribution against the criminals who assassinated this great martyr.”
In late last year, the Islamic Republic of Iran displayed its retaliatory strategies by demolishing the Mossad espionage centre in the northern Iraqi city of Erbil in a decisive and unexpected missile strike. This does not suggest that Tehran would inexorably respond to Martyr Khodaei’s assassination with a similar missile assault on Israel’s espionage headquarters, rather, it implies that the Zionists would have to wait for devastating vengeance, the date and place of which they cannot predict.
