Monday, 04/01/2024

Iran International television journalist and host Pouria Zeraati who was stabbed last week in London posted a message on social media saying the attack was "purposefully planned."

Citing information from the police, Zeraati said that the investigation has made good progress and the investigation was still ongoing. He added that "The suspects had purposefully planned this attack and did/do not pose a threat to the public living in London/UK."

He also thanked thousands of people who have expressed outrage for the attack and expressed support an sympathy for him.

"Firstly I want to thank you for all your calls, messages and support; I am really sorry that I am not able to respond to all of them. The amount of your sympathy, kindness and love in past few days has been and is the greatest and best energy for my recovery process," Zeraati posted on social media on Monday.

"Fortunately, I am feeling better, recovering & I have been discharged from the hospital. My wife and I are residing at a safe place under the supervision of the Met Police," he added

Zeraati was stabbed as he emerged from his home on March 29 in south London by unknown assailants. Iran International has faced threats from the Iranian government for the past 20 months, and other journalists at the network faced imminent threats of attacks in 2022 and 2023.

Although the police have not issued a statement about who the assailants were, Iran's Islamic regime has conducted hundreds of attacks against dissidents and journalists outside the country over the past 45 years.
