Two prominent Iranian scientists mysteriously died within hours of each other on Sunday, less than a month after at least three other scientists and military officials also died under mysterious circumstances in the country.
Iranian state media Fars reported that the two men, who both had significant roles in Iran’s UAV program, satellite, and ballistic missile programs, died in two separate car accidents.
Notably, Tasnim reported that Kamani died while “defending the homeland during the mission.”The Iranian news outlet did not provide additional details into his mission or the circumstances of his death.
Last week, Iranian aerospace engineer Dr. Ayoob Entezari died within hours of eating dinner at a social gathering.
While Iranian media initially said he had died of food poisoning, it was clear to most that the actual cause of his death was acute, intentional poisoning.
The Iranian government seemingly confirmed this to Enterzari’s family by presenting them with a certificate of martyrdom for their deceased relative.
In late May, Col. Hassan Sayyad Khodaei, a senior member of the IRGC, was shot to death outside his home in Tehran by assassins on a motorbike.
A week later, another IRGC commander, Col. Ali Esmailzadeh, died after reportedly falling off the roof of his home.
While some analysts attributed that “accident” to Mossad agents, others said he was killed by the Iranian government over suspicion that he had leaked information to Israel that enabled the targeted killing of Khodaei.
