Analysis: The cyberattacks on Islamic Republic's Revolutionary Guard-run transit system are an open act of war designed to make the Iranians vulnerable, but Tehran has already proven that it is very much capable of retaliating; how it chooses to do so remains to be see Members of Iran's paramilitary Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps marching in Tehran(Photo: AP) Therefore, the cyberattacks that Iran's Transportation Ministry reported over the weekend were not only an open act of war meant to damage the IRGC's military and economic infrastructure, but also a symbolic act against the regime in Tehran.According to reports, the alleged attack did not cause any trains to crash or derail.Train services had been disrupted, with hackers posting fake delay notices on station boards.The sneak...

Iran: Israel is behind attack on atomic facility

ATTACK, INTERNATIONAL, IRAN, Israel, Middle East
Iran blames Israel for drone attack on Iranian facility used to manufacture uranium centrifuges. The Iranian government has accused Israel of carrying out the drone attack on an Iranian nuclear facility last month. Ali Rabiei, a spokesman for the Iranian government, said Tuesday afternoon that Israel was behind the June 23rd drone attack on an Atomic Energy Organization of Iran building in the city of Karaj. “The Zionist regime carried out this action in order to signal that it is capable of stopping Iran and to say that there is no need to speak with Iran, but every time we’ve been attacked, our strength has only increased,” Rabiei said. The facility, which is used to manufacture uranium centrifuges, was targeted by an unmanned aircraft during the attack, which Iran initi...

BAGHDAD (AP) - Iran´s expeditionary Quds Force commander brought one main directive for Iraqi militia faction leaders long beholden to Tehran, when he gathered with them in Baghdad last month: Maintain calm, until after nuclear talks between Iran and the United States. But he was met with defiance. One of the six faction leaders spoke up in their meeting: They could not stay quiet while the death of his predecessor Qassim Soleimani and senior Iraqi militia commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis in a U.S. drone strike went unavenged. Militia attacks have only been increasing against the U.S. in military bases in both Iraq and Syria. Three missile attacks in the last week alone resulted in minor injuries, stoking fears of escalation. The details from Esmail Ghaani´s visit, confirmed to Th...

In some cases, disputes may have complexities that take time to resolve, Ali Rabiei said. DUBAI: Iran reported "good progress" on Tuesday in talks with regional rival Saudi Arabia but said some of their disputes are complex and may take time to resolve.

Iran has criticised the Gulf Arab states' close ties with Tehran's long-term foe Washington an...

Russia’s vaunted S-400 anti-air defence system, which it has offered to sell to Iraq. Source: National Interest Since the Iranian revolution of 1979, both Iran and Russia have had renewed interest in influencing politics in Iraq. Moscow is in favour of a secular and stable Iraq amenable to a Russian presence, whereas revolutionary Iran hopes for a Shi’a Iraq that favours neither East nor West. However, and despite these incompatible strategies, Iran and Russia have been cooperating in Iraq over the past few years. This cooperation was not a result of mutual interest, but rather of unexpected political events such as the US invasion of Iraq and the subsequent emergence of ISIS. Under these circumstances, Russia and Iran’s relations in Iraq have gone through different stages outlined bel...
