Qatari Passenger, Cargo Planes Shifting Flights to Iranian Airspace

 

"As of today, all flights performed by Qatari airlines will cross the Iranian airspace to travel to Africa and Europe," an informed source at Iran Airports and Air Navigation Company said.

The source referred to the situation of Qatari airlines following the recent diplomatic challenges between Doha and a number of Arab countries leading to a ban on passing through skies of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt, and said, "The four major Persian Gulf littoral and North African states have announced that Qatar Airways, the state-owned flag carrier of Qatar, will be banned from using their airspaces as of today, June 06.”

The official underlined that given the current circumstances, the only option left for Qatari flights would be flying through Iran’s sky.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, Egypt and Libya have cut diplomatic ties and sealed off all land, sea and air contacts with Qatar, accusing the Persian Gulf country of supporting terrorism and interfering in their internal affairs.

Riyadh took the lead on Monday to sever relations and some of its small allies fell in line after Riyadh "urged all brotherly countries and companies to do the same." The "decisive" measure, the Saudi statement said, was due to "gross violations committed by authorities in Qatar over the past years." Qatar denies any wrongdoing.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif urged the Persian Gulf littoral states to avoid engaging in tensions and instead resort to dialogue and peaceful solution.

"Neighbors are permanent; geography can't be changed," Zarif wrote on his Twitter page on Monday in reaction to the rift between Qatar and Saudi Arabia followed by severed diplomatic relations between Doha and the Saudi allies.

The Iranian foreign minister urged Riyadh and Doha governments to exercise self-restraint, saying, "Coercion is never the solution. Dialog is imperative, especially during blessed Ramadan."

Iran's parliament and Khomeini mausoleum attacked

Twin attacks on the Iranian parliament and Ayatollah Khomeini's mausoleum in the capital, Tehran, have caused a number of deaths and injuries.

The assault on the parliament building may be ongoing, with conflicting reports of a hostage situation. A suicide bomber died at the mausoleum.

Iranian officials say they have foiled a third attack.

The so-called Islamic State group (IS) has claimed it carried out the attacks, which would be a first in Iran.

IS later posted a video which showed what it claims is footage from inside the parliament building.

Gunmen armed with Kalashnikovs broke into the parliament in the morning, killing a security guard, and there are reports of several more deaths. It is unclear whether the situation has been resolved, and images from the scene show a major security operation.

There are unconfirmed reports of a continuing hostage situation, and on video filmed outside parliament heavy gunfire can be heard.

MP Mojtaba Zonnour says security forces have the streets near Iran's parliament "under full control" but are still trying to control the situation inside the building, reports Mehr news agency.

The governor of Tehran said one attacker there had detonated a suicide vest and another had been killed by security forces, state broadcaster Irib reports.

Images from the scene showed grenades and magazines for automatic weapons, apparently recovered from the body of an attacker.

There are reports that either one of the attackers was female, or possibly just dressed as a woman.

Several members of the public, visiting the shrine, have been injured.

Tehran, June 7, IRNA – Following two terrorist acts in Iranian Majlis and Imam Khomeini Mausoleum on Wednesday morning, Tehran Security Council has started an emegency meeting since 12:00 o'clock local time.

Two wounded victims of Tehran terror attacks die

 

 The total number of the wounded reached 38, including the two who died at hospitals, Abbass Zarenejad told IRNA

The injured people are being treated at four hospitals in Tehran, according to him.

Armed men in two terrorist attacks in the Iranian parliament (Majlis) and Imam Khomeini’s Mausoleum (20 km south of Tehran) opened fire on people, with one female suicide assailant detonating herself outside the mausoleum.

Health Minister Seyyed Hassan Hashemi, who was visiting the injured victims of the terrorist incident at the hospitals, ordered all the medical centers in Tehran to be on call, as the number of victims may rise.

Meanwhile, Deputy Interior Minister Hossein Zolfaqari said that the terrorists had entered the parliament in women dress.

Daesh (the terrorist group ISIS) has reportedly claimed the responsibility of the attacks.

E' alta tensione in Medioriente. Questa mattina si è consumato l'ennesimo episodio di terrorismo in Iran Stampa E-mail

Terrorismo in Iran: attacco al Parlamento e a monumento di Khomeini. Isis rivendica attentato

  E' alta tensione in Medioriente, dopo l'attacco combinato di questa mattina in Iran, con ben due obiettivi sensibili, il Parlamento e il mausoleo dedicato a Khomeini, che avrebbero provocato almeno 10 morti e una trentina di feriti.

L'ISIS ha già rivendicato gli attacchi.

Tre uomini armati hanno fatto irruzione nelle prime ore della giornata nel palazzo dove ha sede il Parlamento, a Teheran, ferendo alcune persone ed uccidendo una guardia. I media iraniani parlano anche di ostaggi e scrivono che uno degli assalitori si sarebbe fatto esplodere al quinto piano dell'edificio.

Secondo altre fonti, i deputati durante l'attacco gridavano "Morte agli Stati Uniti, abbasso gli Stati Uniti". Un'affermazione che rischia di far capitolare le relazioni diplomatiche fra i due Paesi.



Sempre nella capitale iraniana, nelle stesse ore, si sono uditi dei colpi di arma da fuoco presso il monumento dedicato all'Ayatollah Khomeini, ad opera di un commando di quattro terroristi, di cui uno suicida.

La TV di Stato Irib ha fatto sapere che l'anti-terrorismo ha sventato almeno un altro attentato ed arrestato una squadra di terroristi. Il ministro dlel'Intelligence, Mahmoud Alavi, ha confermato che a Teheran erano entrati in azione diversi gruppi di terroristi, ma solo due sono riusciti a mettere a segno l'obiettivo.
