"The assassination of Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh on Nov. 27 in a gun attack in Tehran was a grave murder, no different from the assassination of Gen. Qasem Soleimani" this January, Devlet Bahceli told his party's parliamentary group, Anadolu reported.

"It is clear that this brutal attack was carried out in a very organized manner," he said, adding that such attacks are terrorism. "What grabs our attention is the timing of the assassination," he said.
