Hasheminejad: History of terrorism in Iran as old as Revolution

According to information gathered by Habilian Foundation (families of Iranian terror victims), there are more than 17000 victims of terrorism in Iran.

“Iran has had more than 17000 terror victims over the past 30 years,” Secretary-General of Habilian Foundation told Fars News Agency.

Seyyed Mohammad Javad Hasheminejad said terrorism is a long lasting issue in Iran, the history of which is as old as Islamic Revolution.

“Established in 2005, Habilian Foundation is a specialized counter-terrorism center,” he said, adding “the primary objective of that is to collect and document MKO crimes in Iran.”

Criticizing the lack of security measures for Iranian nuclear scientists, Hasheminejad emphasized as “both the government and the NGOs should cooperate with each other” to prevent these assassinations.

Describing scientists as “national wealth”  who the government should ensure their security, son of late Ayatollah Hasheminejad said public communities like Habilian Foundation has the responsibility of gathering information about terrorist groups as well as their supporters, adding “it is our responsibility to make them known to the international community.”

“We have had different terrorist groups (acting against us) during different stages and now Western countries are after destabilizing Iran by preventing scientific development in Iran, the sign of which is assassination of Iran’s scientists.”
