Reports claim that the assassination of nuclear physicist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was aided by satellites and artificial intelligence.
Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was gunned down on November 27, aged 61.
Fakhrizadeh who is said to have been the brains behind Iran's nuclear programme was travelling by car outside of Tehran with a security force of 11 guards.
Around the time of his death, Ramazan Sharif, a spokesperson for the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps said: "The assassination of a scientist on the street with a satellite device can not undermine our security."
Now, Iranian military officer Ali Fadavi claims that his assassination was carried out when a machine gun "zoomed in" on Fakhrizadeh's face before firing 13 rounds.
He went on to claim that the weapon was placed on a Nissan truck 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."
The machine gun was "controlled online" via a satellite and also used an "advanced camera and artificial intelligence," he went on to say.
He continued: "We've checked and found out that a satellite was controlling a machinegun remotely, and there was no terrorist at the scene."
Fakhrizadeh's head of security is believed to have taken four bullets during the attack which saw him "throw himself" on the scientist.
Last week, it was claimed that Isreal was behind the attack after remains of the killing weapon indicated that it originated from the Israeli military.
Israeli Intelligence Minister Eli Cohen has claimed that the Israeli government have "no idea" who was behind the attack on Fakhrizadeh.
He went on to say that the attack made the world "safer" as Fakhrizadeh had "an active part in creating a nuclear weapon".
A US administration official has also claimed that Isreal was behind the assassination but refused to disclose whether President Donald Trump was aware of the attack before it took place.
