Speaker of the Iranian Parliament, Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf, called today, Sunday, for a harsh response to the assassination of nuclear scientist Fakhrizadeh.

In a speech delivered at the plenary session of the parliament, Qalibaf said: " The criminal enemy will not regret (its moves) unless there is a strong reaction (from Iran) that would both create deterrence against the enemy’s possible future mistakes and take revenge on them for this crime,” the parliament speaker said.

Earlier, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that his country would respond in due time to the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, describing the operation as an "Israeli trap."

He accused arch-foe Israel of acting as a US "mercenary" and seeking to create chaos, vowing Tehran would avenge the assassination of a top Iranian nuclear scientist.
