Larijani: Enemies Intend to Damage Lebanon by Assassinating Iranian Official
Iranian Parliament Speaker, Ali Larijani stated that the assassination of the head of the Iranian delegation in charge of developmental projects in Lebanon, General Hassan Shateri, was meant to be a blow to Lebanon.
“Martyr Shateri tried to reorganize the status of the Lebanese people and therefore his martyrdom is a great loss for them,” Larijani told reporters in Tehran after attending a ceremony to honor martyr Shateri on Tuesday.
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.
The Lebanese daily al-Safir reported on Thursday that martyr Shateri was in Aleppo to study some reconstruction projects in parts of the Syrian city.
