When the attack was repelled, an employee of the Azerbaijani law enforcement agencies responsible for the protection of the embassy heroically died, and another was injured.
Currently, the Azerbaijani side is conducting an urgent investigation and additional information will be provided.
We hope that the special services of Iran itself are not behind this attack. In any case, an investigation is ongoing and more information will be released.
It should be noted in particular that Iran has a rich tradition of attacks on foreign embassies – the seizure of the US embassy, the attacks on the Saudi Arabian embassy and consulate in Tehran and Mashhad in 2016, and if you go deeper into history, you can recall the murder of Griboyedov. And the authorities of Iran itself have always been behind this …
The head of the embassy’s security service, Orkhan Asgarov, was shot dead, while two others were wounded in the attack, the report added.
