A top Iranian adviser said Sunday that Iran is prepared to respond to the recent killing of its leading nuclear scientist with “calculated and decisive” measures, which an influential newspaper said should include an attack on Israel.

Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was gunned down in his car on the outskirts of Tehran on Friday. According to an account from Iran’s Fars news agency, Mr. Fakhrizadeh’s bulletproof car was shot at from an automatic remote-operated machine gun, contradicting reports that he was ambushed by a pack of gunmen.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, although Iran was quick to point fingers at Israel, which Iran believes has killed several of its nuclear scientists in the past.
