How does a whole tanker just vanish and end up off Iran with rumors of “pirates” and the crew safely returning home in the meantime?
What the world is witnessing right now is someone hitting Iranian nuclear and conventional weapons and IRGC facilities practically at will.
Al-Arabiya reported that the explosions occurred in missile depots belonging to the IRGC southwest of Tehran.
The discussion was about confronting Israel and getting the “Zionists" to “leave the occupied territories.”
The strike targeted location where the IRGC Quds Force commander had visited hours earlier.
Ghaani said that Iran would continue to fight the “Zionist regime” and the US, and said the US and Israel were supporting ISIS.
Iran’s Defense Ministry revealed on Tuesday that the country produces 70% of the products needed for aircraft and helicopters locally.
In 1999 he bragged about his role in suppressing protests, according to one account.
The reported rocket attack also comes on the six-year anniversary of the fatwa by Iraqi Ayatollah Ali Sistani that helped create the Popular Mobilization Units to fight ISIS.
Ghaani’s trip to Baghdad, if it actually happened, may foreshadow more Iranian moves against the US. The US is gripped by crises, pandemic and protests, and Iran may see an opening.
