Top Nuclear Scientist killed by Satellite-controlled Machine Gun With ‘Artificial Intelligence’: Iran
Iran said that a satellite-controlled machine gun with “artificial intelligence” was used to kill its top nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh near the capital Tehran on November 27. The scientist was driving on a highway with a security detail of 11 Guards, when the machine gun “zoomed in” on his face and fired 13 rounds.
Addressing a commemoration ceremony on Sunday for the scientist, Iran’s deputy commander of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Ali Fadavi told local media that the machine gun was mounted on a Nissan pickup and “focused only on martyr Fakhrizadeh’s face in a way that his wife, despite being only 25 centimetres (10 inches) away, was not shot.”
He added, “It was being controlled online via a satellite and used an advanced camera and artificial intelligence to make the target. Fadavi also said that Fakhrizadeh’s head of security took four bullets “as he threw himself” on the scientist and that there were “no terrorists at the scene”.
According to a report by the State-run Press TV, IRGC spokeperson Brigadier General Ramezan Sharif said, “Advanced electronic instruments guided by satellite were used in the assassination of Fakhrizadeh,”
