Iran blames Saudi for promoting "terrorism" in its borders

Implications of the ISIS Attacks in Tehran

On Sunday, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, Major General Mostafa Izadi, claimed Tehran had obtained "documents and information" that purport to prove that Washington has been directly supporting IS to wage "a proxy warfare in the region". But recent Gulf reports have charged the relationship goes beyond resource management, accusing Qatari officials of meeting with the head of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps.

The assailants attacked the parliament buildins in the morning.

Terrorists carried out an attack on Iran's Parliament (Majlis) and Ayatollah Khomeini's mausoleum in Tehran on Wednesday, killing at least a dozen people.

As many as eight farmer unions, including the Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) staged protest in 17 out of 25 districts in Punjab. The government had also assured that moong and tuar will be procured from farmers from June 10 at minimum support price.

On September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists - 15 of them Saudi nationals - engaged in a multi-pronged attack on United States soil, including hijacking passenger planes and crashing them into what were then the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City.

Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - the United States, France, Britain, Russia and China - plus Germany signed the mammoth agreement in July 2015 and started implementing it in January 2016.

Tehran also been a key support in Iraq's efforts to defeat Islamic State, providing military assistance to Shi'ite paramilitary fighting the Sunni insurgents who declared a "caliphate" over parts of Iraq and Syria in 2014. Doha denies their accusations of it backing Islamist militants and Iran. In this video an Islamic State militant vowed, "We will invade Iran and return it to Sunni control", and Shiite militiamen - thought to be Iraqis - were executed.

Iran arrests seven suspects linked to Tehran attacks
The sources from state security have pointed to Iranian Kurds affiliated with Islamic State the likely perpetrators. The parliament held a funeral ceremony for the victims in Tehran on Friday attended by the top brass.

Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has claimed Washington is lying about fighting terrorism in the Middle East, saying USA activity has instead given rise to Islamic State.

Iranian officials said Saturday they had killed the attack's mastermind. That Islamic State should criticize the Islamic Republic for being too nice to its Jews suggests that a great deal other than sectarian identity separates the two. While Iran backs President Bashad al-Assad, Riyadh follows a US-led coalition for changing the regime with the help of insurgents. And it seems to elude many others in the West. The fingers of blame were pointed at Saudi Arabia and the U.S., who were accused of being behind the attacks.

Isolated US Lashes Out at Climate Critics
The US will "continue to be a leader in the environment", but do so "under our terms", she added. Other Trump administration members have outright dodged this issue.
