BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:40 P.M.) – An news channel reported on Monday that the Israeli Chief-of-Staff, General Aviv Kochavi, had sent a message to Iran, following the assassination of the Iranian nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, last Friday.

In a related context, the Iranian authorities sent on Tuesday, a letter to the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michael Bachelet, regarding the assassination of the prominent Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.
