The Egyptian permanent representative in the UN, Ambassador Amr Abu Atta, denounced the Iranian violation of the UN Resolution 2231, the one approved after the nuclear deal signed in 2015. Ambassador Abu Atta said that Tehran is violation the Resolution smuggling weapons to Houthi in Yemen, threating the stability of the Middle East with the missiles test and interfering in the internal affairs of the Arab countries (which fuels the sectarian conflict in the region). He also asked to the Italian permanent representative, who is now in charge of monitoring the respect of the Res. 2231, to update the members of the Security Council about the implementation of the resolution 2231.
On June 18, the Iranian regime announced of having fired six missiles Zolfawar, against Isis targets in Syria, in the Deir al-Zour Province. In particular, the targets were two telecommunications towers and their associated buildings. As well known, the attack was a reaction to the two terrorists attacks of Isis in Tehran, one against the Parliament and the second against the Shrine of the Imam Khomeini. After the attack, the Pasdaran exulted and described the action as the first “clear message” to the takfiri terrorists and their regional supporters (meaning Saudi Arabia).
But now, it seems that the Iranian attacks in Syria were a complete failure. The US think tank Washington Institute, published an article claiming that the Iranian missiles did not hit the targets, but landed elsewhere. Seven Iranian missiles landed in the Iraq desert, while other three missed completely the objectives. Only one or two of the missiles launched by the Pasdaran, arrived close to their targets.
If confirmed, this failure demonstrates that the Iranian missiles have a serious problem of quality control and reliability. The author of the article, Farzin Nadimi, also underline that Tehran could try to obtain foreign technology, in order to remedy the failure.

The Iranian Supreme Guide Ali Khamenei gave his sermon for Eid al-Fitr, in front of important Muslim representatives. While speaking, Khamenei held a rifle close to him (the rifle was a Czech Brno, based on German Mauser). Showing the rifle, Khamenei wanted to launch a calling to the armed jihad to the Islamic world. Against whom? First a jihad against Israel, the classical enemy of the Iranian regime. During his speech, Khamenei remarked that the Palestinian issue is the main issue for the Muslim world. Because of this reason, the jihad against the “Zionist entity” is a duty and could take any form. But, Khamenei’s message of jihad, was also against Saudi Arabia. In his speech, Khamenei underlined that the crisis in Yemen and Bahrain, represent a great wound in the body of the Islamic world. The Iranian Supreme Guide called the Islamic world to support explicitly the Yemeni and Bahraini peoples. Which means a calling of Jihad not only against Riyadh, but also against its allies. Finally, Khamenei expressed his support to the Kashmiri people, which means a calling of Jihad against India (whose Prime Minister Modi will soon visit Israel).

The Iranian press agency Tasnim News, close to the IRGC, published the final official statement of the annual Quds Day.

The statement propose a comprehensive referendum on self-determination of Palestine, as the only solution for the Palestinian issue (which will bring the end of the “Zionist entity”). The statement attacks also the Arab States, which are ready to “support Zionists”, first of all the “diabolical House of Saud“. For these reasons, the statement expresses its support for the “popular and resistance forces” in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Bahrain. During the march, the Friday Prayer leader of Tehran, Ahmad Khatami, declared that today “Death to America is synonymous of Death to Al Saud”.

The Hamas’s representative underlined that, despite the attempt to normalize the relations with Israel, this normalization will fail because “the Zionist entity has no historical relations with the Region”. Finally, he asks to Iran to create an army to liberate Jerusalem.

Speaking about al-Quds Day with the Iranian press agency Fars News, close to the Pasdaran, the Sunni Palestinian representative of the terrorist group Popular Front for Liberation of Palestine, Kayed al-Ghul, used the occasion to express his admiration for Imam Khomeini. He praised the Revolution of 1979, which established the Islamic Shiite Republic, ending the relations between Iran, the US administration and the “Zionist entity”. Al-Ghul attacked the Arab States which are ready to achieve agreements with Israel and praising the Iranian regime for its stance in favor of the “Islamic unity”.
Saudi Ministry of Culture and Information announced the arrest of three members of the Iranian Pasdaran, by the Saudi Royal Navy. In the statement, the Saudi Ministry said that the three Pasdaran were on a boat loaded with explosive, and their goal was to attack the oil platform at Marajan field (in the Arabian gulf).

The deputy chairman of Hamas political bureau, Moussa Abu Marzouk, met in Lebanon with the Secretary of Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah. During the meeting, the two agreed on strengthening the relations between the two terrorist organizations. The meeting happened on Thursday evening in Lebanon’s capital Beirut. Abu Mazouk arrived in Beirut after visiting Egypt, where he met with Yahya Sunwar – the head of Hamas in Gaza – the chief of the Egyptian intelligence Maj. Gen. Khaled Fawzy. It seems that, during the meeting, not only Abu Marzouk asked to Nasrallah to receive more money and training from Iran, but he also asked to Nasrallah to host in Lebanon the representatives of Hamas expelled from Qatar.

In an interview with the Iranian press agency Mehr News, the Iranian MP Mohammad Dehghan, launched harsh accuses against the intelligence. Speaking about the two terrorist attacks of Tehran – happened on June 7 – Dehghan revelaed that there was a secret meeting held by the Iranian parliament. In this meeting, it was denounced that the terrorists had infiltrated the Iranian intelligence. He even added that “some elements of the Iranian security system have cooperated with Isis”. The infiltration is also demonstrated for Mohammad Dehghan, by the fact that it would be impossible to carry out these attacks, without the cooperation of entities working within the country, especially inside the Iranian intelligence service. For these reasons, Mohammad Dehghan asked to the Iranian Minister of Intelligence Mahmoud Alavi, to explain what happened.
It is important to add that the official version given by the Iranian Minister of intelligence about the responsible of the attacks – four people wearing women’s clothing – was contradicted by the videos published online (also one published by media close to Isis). On the social networks, many Iranian activists are accusing the regime for the attacks: one of the terrorists, named Sarias Sadeghi, was previously arrested by the intelligence for his activity in favor of Isis in the Iranian region of Kurdistan. He was after released and was also free to travel in Syria and Iraq. For these activists, the attacks were the result of a short circuit in the relations between the Iranian regime, and the Sunni radicalism.
