Iranian officials have blamed Israel’s Mossad for the assassination. One American official and two other intelligence officials also told the New York Times that Israel was behind the attack.
A Hyundai Santa Fe with four passengers, four motorcycles and two snipers were waiting for him at the scene of the ambush, along with a booby-trapped Nissan pickup.
The second car, containing Fakhrizadeh, was then shot at by the 12 assassins, including two snipers.
Ahwaze tweeted: ‘According to Iranian leaks, the leader of the assassination team took Fakhrizadeh out of his car and shot him and made sure he was killed.’
