London, 14 July - The leading Iranian opposition group has said that the plot to bomb their annual resistance rally in France on June 30 was directed by the highest powers in the Iranian Regime.

London, 10 July - The senior commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has made a terrifying threat against Israel in a speech this weekend.

Hossein Salami said that Iran had created an "Islamic army" near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights in Syria, which he warned would be used to "end" Israel.

The Times of Israel reported that Salami had said: “Today, an international Islamic army has been formed in Syria, and the voices of the Muslims are heard near the Golan. Orders are awaited, so that the eradication of the evil [Israeli] regime will land and the life of this regime will be ended for good. The life of the Zionist regime was never in [so much] danger as it is now.”

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani threatened on Tuesday, while at a meeting in Vienna, to blockade oil shipments from the Gulf countries, after Donald Trump made additional efforts to persuade China, Japan, and India, among others, to ditch Iranian oil to avoid upcoming US sanctions.
