Members of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission in a statement issued on Saturday warned the Israeli regime that Tehran will give a crushing response to the assassination of the head of the Iranian delegation in charge of developmental projects in Lebanon Hassan Shateri.
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - "The Zionist regime of Israel will receive a crushing response for the savage assassination of General Shateri in due time and place," the parliament commission said in the statement.
They also strongly condemned the move, and added that such crimes will speed up collapse of the criminal Zionist regime.
The statement further praised General Shateri's services to Iran, and said his assassination will stimulate other Iranians to pave his path.
The Iranian mission in Beirut on Thursday confirmed the assassination of Hassan Shateri by the terrorist groups in Syria.
The embassy said in a statement that Hassan Shateri was assassinated by terrorist groups in Syria while he was on his way back to Lebanon from the Syrian city of Aleppo.
Martyr Shateri who was in Aleppo to implement reconstruction and development projects in that city, was assassinated by Syrian terrorists while he was on his way to the Damascus airport to return to Lebanon.
The Iranian development delegation headed by Martyr Shateri played a major role in reconstructing southern Lebanon after the Zionist regime's 33-day war against the country in 2006.
Martyr Shateri was highly respected by the Lebanese people and officials.
The Lebanese newspaper al-Safir reported on Thursday that martyr Shateri was in Aleppo to study some reconstruction projects in parts of the Syrian city.
