(1/n) We gathered and analysed genetic and epidemiological data related to the #COVID19 outbreak in #Iran to gauge its size in late Feb - early Mar and estimate the likely start of transmissions. I will summarise some of our key findings in this thread. Will be ~8 tweets.
We have been following the outbreak since the first two reported deaths in #Qom on 19 Feb. In less than a week, cases started popping up in almost every province in the country. Since 23 Mar, #Iran has only released nationwide numbers.
We just found out (not yet included in the preprint) that reports from #Tehran university hospitals indicate the first COVID-19 death took place on 10 Feb followed by 6 more deaths up to 19 Feb before 2 deaths in #Qom were officially announced.

The Egyptian philosopher ʿAbd al-Rahman al-Badawi (1917-2002) is perhaps one of the most underrated thinkers of #ContemporaryArabThought - a major #Heideggerian_existentialist #Sufism and #IslamicPhilosophy specialist who studied at Fuad I (later #Cairo) University 1/
Many of us who study #IslamicThought know him for his editions of #ArabicAristotle #ArabicPlato #ArabicPlotinus as well as editions of the work of #Avicenna #IbnSabin #SiwanalHikma and others - without his efforts we would not have editions of the #PlotinianaArabica 2/
In the 1930s he studied in Cairo and obtained his PhD in 1944 supervised by #AlexandreKoyré (1892-1964) on the notion of 'existential time' that engages with #Heidegger - this like his other early works was published by #DaralNahdaalMisriya 3/

1. Is the government of #Iran pushing citizens of #Iraq #Bahrain #KSA #UAE #Afghanistan out the way it is pushing #Pakistani #zaireen out?

2. Why is PM #ImranKhan's govt unable to engage with #Tehran or ask it to coordinate return of our citizens w/out risking #COVID19 spread?
@Office_AQPk #Pakistan is the only country in the world where the head of government has called for lifting sanctions on #Iran due to #COVID19 (despite evidence the sanctions & outbreak are not linked). But PM #ImranKhan is unable or won't discuss treatment of #Pakistani #zaireen with #Tehran

#COVIDー19 crisis response is another area where the performance of Prime Minister #ImranKhan's cabinet is inadequate & late resulting in a rapid surge in #coronavirus cases+infections. His TV address was unimpressive. @ImranKhanPTI can learn from @realDonaldTrump & @NYGovCuomo.
Unlike #USA+#Europe, #Pakistan is right next door to two epicenters of #COVIDー19 spread: #China & #Iran. China was initially late but later took impressive steps to contain the spread, incl quarantining #Pakistani citizens. Unlike Iran where Pk citizens visited in large numbrs.
What steps did PM #ImranKhan take for a #CoronaFreePakistan when it was obvious #Pakistan faced #COVIDー19 spread threat from #Iran; & when it became obvious that almost every neighbor incl #Iraq+#Turkey+#Gulf traced 1st cases to Iran & when #Tehran failed to warn neighbors?

A lot has changed in #Idlib/NW #Syria in recent days & much of the focus has been on hour-by-hour developments & less has been said on what it all means going forward.

Here's a lengthy thread laying out some of my thinking.
2 weeks ago, pro-#Assad forces were rampaging through #Idlib, overwhelming opposition defenses & swallowing up #Turkey's military observation posts almost at will.

The world stood virtually silent - or indifferent - as 1 million people were methodically & brutally displaced.
#pt: Amid the pro-#Assad advances, #Turkey ramped up arms supplies & intel sharing with #NLF/#SNA opposition proxies - in an attempt to bolster their offensive & defensive capabilities.

Then #TSK artillery support was added, along with a low-tempo campaign of covert UAV strikes.

A Putin-Erdogan meeting is expected once the military operation in #Idlib reaches its objectives and imposes the Astana agreement by force where Turkey failed to do so in more than a year over HTS, ak al-Nusra (former ISIS in Syria, former al-Qaeda in Syria) et al.
The Syrian Army is preparing a large offensive and Russia is very angry.

Dangerous combination in the next 24 hours.
33 Turkish officers killed and 36 wounded by a Russian raid on a Turkish convoy in rural #Idlib (#Syria) last night.

#Russia is replying to the Turkish supply of MANPADs to Jihadists, a very serious matter jeopardizing Russian pilots safety and a change of the Rule of Engagement

#BREAKING: Security forces of #Iran's Islamic Regime including #IRGC Ground Force are now sending their troops and military equipment including these MRAPs to the city of #Qom in-order to establish military curfew over #CoronaVirus outbreak & death of two people in the city!
#BREAKING: Another video shows arrival of the MRAPs of #IRGC Ground Force at the entry points of the city of #Qom for military curfew and closure of main roads to the city over the #CoronaVirus outbreak in the city!
Video shows a #CoronaVirus infected patient who was transported from #Qom to #Tehran's Farmaniyeh hospital. He was a high profile patient (probably relative of a regime authority).

#Iran escalating tension policy persists in the region!
The Islamic Republic, in the wake of its abnormal behavior, has deployed heavy_weapons to three Arab states in the #Middle_East ❗️The regime continues its malicious behavior in the neighboring countries.
A few months ago, a journalist who fled #Iran informed us: The Islamic Republic and in particular the #Revolutionary_Guards had sent heavy weaponries to several Arab countries to counter, what they call ‘American Threats’, & #US forces in the event of a possible Iran/US conflict
Months ago, Bahraini Foreign Minister, Khalid bin Ahmed al-Khalifa confirmed the revelation, stating: “#Iran has secretly transferred weapons and explosives to #Bahrain. These weapons were enough to destroy half of the capital city #Manama❗️

It is now confirmed: Olena Malakhova, director of #SkyAviaTrans which played key role in illegal weapon smuggling from #Turkey to #Libya is among victims of Flight #PS752 shot-down! She was in #Iran to discuss about one of her businessjets in use as an Air Taxi in #Tehran.
On 6 August 2019, I revealed that her Il-76TD cargo airplane with UR-COZ civil register was bombed & destroyed by #Libya National Air Force in #Misrata air base. That night, UR-COZ had smuggled weapons from Akinci (Mürted) Air Base in #Ankara, #Turkey.
#Ukraine's state media falsely labeled me as #Russia's propagandist & claimed that I spread #FakeNews as part of an anti-Ukrainian campaign prior visit of #Zelensky & #Erdogan in #Turkey. But thanks to Satellite images, it was proved that I was right about #SkyAviaTrans Il-76TD

#Iran's leader has started his speech in Tehran Friday prayers, leading the prayers for the first time after 8 years.
#Iran's leader says that two days of "funeral ceremony of #QasemSoleimani" & "firing missiles at US base" #AinAlAsad are "days of God" & "turning points" in history.
#Iran's leader: What happened that the Zionist media empire in all the world wanted to blame #QasemSoleimani for terrorism [after he was assassinated]? US president & his Secretary of State also did this.

New Dimensions of Ukrainian Airplane Incident in #Tehran; #US Footprint Brighter than Ever! + Video

english.iswnews.com/10265/new-dime…
According to available information, few after #Iran’s missile attacks on #US terrorist forces in #Iraq, the US reconnaissance aircraft “Rivet Joint”, started the simulation of cruise missiles firing to some targets in center of Iran.
In fact, the Americans have acted against #Iran’s defense system to mislead it; but it’s not the all of story!
What indicates the depth of disaster and #US evil, is the changing the identification of a passenger aircraft to a cruise missile!

#Iran admits downing a civilian jetliner #PS752 after calling the US and others claim as 'psychological warfare'.

Ops Martyr #Soliemani has been a sobering wakeup call for #Tehran.

11 revenge scenarios yet to be realised while some 200 Iranians already dead, stampede included.
Religious fanatics - in #India and #Iran both - failed to act professionally in brief, offensive battles.

Both #Delhi and #Tehran made catastrophic decisions.

After initial denial, both had to admit failure.

The world isn't safe with #RSS, #Shiite extremists in power.

#Stop
#Iran can't get away by scapegoating a low-ranking official, downing an enemy plane is never a tactical decision. An officer of the level of major general or brigadier would have approved and directed. Allowing field commanders to act on their own proves lack of professionalism.

How Dangerous is the Situation Between the U.S. and #Iran?

I joined @vali_nasr and @MicheleDDunne for a debate over Trump's decision to kill #IRGC-QF Cmdr Qasem #Soleimani, the fallout, and what will likely come next. Full episode video at the link:
@vali_nasr @MicheleDDunne The idea that the US lacked justification for taking out #Soleimani is bonkers. It's not even a matter of how imminent an attack is; it's all the American blood already on his hands. I explain 👇
#Iran #Iraq
@vali_nasr @MicheleDDunne As I explain, "we're at a point right now where most mainstream media in the US and the talking points among leading Democrats - including presidential candidates - are more pro-Iranian regime than the Iranian people are." #Iran #Iraq #Soleimani 👇
