According to Etemadmeli (Karroubi’s official newspaper), the attacks on Mehdi Karroubi and Abdullah Noori (reformist cleric) where perpetrated by the same undercover organization that committed similar attacks on Khatami’s top two advisors in 1998. These attacks have been condemned by the many of Iran’s political elites.
According to Mohsen Rahami, a senior member of the Council of Islamic University, “the armed forces must protect highly ranked individuals such as Karroubi and Noori and they must locate and destroy these undercover organizations. These undercover agents are highly organized and have premeditated plans that are solely designed to discredit and humiliate individuals such as Mr. Karroubi and Mr. Noori.”
Etemadmeli is condemning the attacks and would like to see the agents of these attacks to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
