The news is out: [British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab said Sunday that the U.K. wants to see “de-escalation of tensions” after a top Iranian nuclear scientist was killed near Tehran.
“We are concerned about the situation in Iran and the wider region,” Raab told Sky News.
“We’re still waiting to see the full facts of what’s happened in Iran, but I would say that we stick to the rule of international humanitarian law, which is very clear against targeting civilians,” he added.
Iranian state media reported that Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was shot and killed by “armed terrorist elements” on Friday while in a vehicle in the town of Absard and later died in a hospital.
According to The New York Times, U.S. intelligence believed Fakhrizadeh had been leading Iran’s nuclear program for two decades and kept working after the military effort quietly ended in the early 2000s.]
The law should be the same for all parties involved. Once again, the western world is claiming superiority over all non-white nations. We can kill you on your land whenever we choose, but you cannot retaliate.
