Ripost immediately by further abusing a dying Iranian nuclear deal, or wait? There was heated political debate in Tehran over how to respond to the assassination attributed to Israel of a prominent Iranian nuclear physicist, whose funeral is being held Monday.

In Parliament, the deputies unanimously signed an appeal to avenge the scientist. But taking the opposite of the cautious approach developed the day before by President Hassan Rouhani, they argue in favor of a law by which Iran would stop allowing the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to inspect its nuclear facilities.

In Iran, however, it is the Supreme National Security Council which has the upper hand over decisions relating to the nuclear issue.

Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was killed on Friday in a vehicle bomb attack followed by a shooting against his car, according to the Iranian Ministry of Defense, which presented the victim as the head of its research and innovation department, responsible in particular for " anti-atomic defense ".

In this miserable village, where some 15,000 Ethiopian refugees are crowded near the border, she approaches the people by asking them timidly: "Do you want to taste one?".

Iran accused its arch-enemy, Israel, of carrying out the attack. Expecting retaliation, Israel put its global embassies on high alert on Saturday, Hebrew-language media reported. Iran ’s immediate priority, he said, was the “definitive punishment of the perpetrators and those who ordered it”.

Two days after the assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, Iranian nuclear scientist, Ankara condemned the facts and spoke of "an act of terrorism". Turkey condemned on Sunday the assassination of one of the main scientists of Iran's nuclear program , seeing it as an act of "terrorism" which "disturbs the peace in the region" . “The death of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh as a result of an attack pained us.

A top advisor to Iran 's Supreme Leader has warned that those responsible for killing one of the country's top nuclear scientists would face a "calculated and decisive" response . Tehran blames Israel for the attack.

Terrorists murdered an eminent Iranian scientist today. His statement came after Mohsen Fakhrizadeh-Mahavadi was attacked during an armed standoff between his bodyguards and unidentified assailants in the city of Absard, just east of the Iranian capital Tehran.

This pact offers Tehran relief from international sanctions in exchange for guarantees, verified by the IAEA, intended to attest to the exclusively peaceful nature of its nuclear program.

In 2018, US President Donald Trump, who had made Iran his pet peeve, unilaterally pulled his country out of the deal, which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly fought against.

Sanctions imposed or reimposed by Washington plunged the Iranian economy into a deep recession and prompted Iran to suspend the application of most of its commitments, but not the access granted to IAEA inspectors.

Mr. Biden said he wanted to bring the United States back into the Vienna agreement.

But he will have little time between taking office (January 20) and the Iranian presidential election (June 18), for which the conservatives are favorites after their landslide victory in the legislative elections in February at the expense of the alliance of moderates and reformers supporting M. Rohani.

"Clear message"

For the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, the elimination of Fakhrizadeh "is a clear message" to Joe Biden and shows Israel's opposition "to a return to the nuclear deal".

The funeral of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh has started at the Ministry of Defense in Tehran.

"We are concerned" by a risk of escalation in the region, said Great Britain, one of the countries party to the agreement, while Turkey, a neighbor of Iran, denounced the assassination of the atomist scientist as an act of "terrorism" which "disturbs the peace in the region".

The United Arab Emirates on Sunday condemned a "heinous" assassination, but called for "the utmost restraint" to "prevent the region from sinking into a new phase of instability and threat to peace".

The Speaker of the Iranian Parliament, Mohammad-Bagher Ghalibaf, pleaded for "a strong reaction" likely to ensure "deterrence" and "revenge".

A communiqué signed by all the deputies judges that "the best response" to the acts of "terrorism and sabotage" of Israel, the United States and their allies, is to "revive the glorious nuclear industry of Iran "by ceasing to apply the IAEA additional protocol.

Under the terms of the Vienna Agreement, Tehran agreed to comply with the requirements of this document providing for unrestricted access for IAEA inspectors to its nuclear installations, even before its ratification by Parliament.

But Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesperson for the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization, told the official Irna news agency on Saturday that the issue of inspectors' access should be "decided at the highest levels".

In a violent editorial, the ultraconservative newspaper Kayhan called on Sunday to attack the Israeli port of Haifa in order to "totally destroy its infrastructure" and to kill many people if it is "proven" that Israel is behind the death by Fakhrizadeh.
