1-Despite all the hindering, the Special Tribunal- #Lebanon ruling left no doubt that this crime was carried out by Hezbollah, which is nothing but a branch of #Iran’s IRGC. #Tehran, Hezbollah & IRGC Quds Force went the distance in their hindering against the court.
2- “This court is a farce & its ruling will be void. We hope the influential parties in #Lebanon carry out their measures based on common sense & diligence to prevent this issue from becoming a problem,” said Khamenei in his meeting with the Qatar emir back in Dec 2010. #Iran
3-Hariri’s assassination was part of the Iranian regime’s plan to finalize their control over Lebanon. The only solution is expelling the IRGC & their proxies from #Lebanon . This is a duty on the shoulders of the UNSC & all related parties that seek peace & stability in Lebanon.

Newly obtained official letters by #AmnestyInternational reveals that the Iranian Gov has ignored repeated pleas by senior officials responsible for managing Iran's prisons for additional resources to control #COVID19 spread and to treat infected prisoners.
Amnesty reviewed copies of 4 letters signed by officials at Iran's prisons, which operates under the supervision of the judiciary, to Iran's Ministry of Health. It raised alarm over serious shortages of protective equipment, disinfectant products and essential medical devices.

Rasūl Jaʿfarīyān continuing with the project of publishing travelogues (especially those relating to pilgrimage) is about to publish an interesting travelogue from 1924 by Mirzā Ḥasan Iḥqāqī (b. Karbala 1900, d. Tehran 2000) leader of the #Shaykhīya #Tabriz #Karbala #Kuwait 1/
Mirzā Ḥasan was the grandson of Mirzā Muḥammad Bāqir Uskūʾī (1815-1884) the founder of the tradition, and the son of Mirza Mūsā (b. Karbala 1863, d. Karbala 1945), the scholar of the family whose Iḥqāq al-ḥaqq is the reason for the family name #Iḥqāqī 2/
He succeeded his brother ʿAlī (b. Najaf 1887, d. Kuwait 1966) as leader of the #Tabriz #Karbala branch of the #Shaykhīya moving from #Tehran to Kuwait, further cementing the relationship with political and merchant elites in #Kuwait 3/

As a follow-up to a thread on the #GunābādīNiʿmatullāhī order and #ShiiSufism some thoughts on Maʿṣūm ʿAlī Shāh (d. 1926) the famous 'historian' of Sufism 1/
His father Raḥmat ʿAlī Shāh (d. 1861) came at the end of a scholarly lineage of #Niʿmatullāhī Shaykhs: Muḥammad Jaʿfar Majdhūb ʿAlī Shāh (d. 1824), Zayn al-ʿĀbidīn Shīrvānī Mast ʿAlī Shāh (d. 1838), and Raḥmat ʿAlī Shāh himself all of whom had good relations at court2/
Majdhūb ʿAlī Shāh was closely linked to the traditional seminarian philosophers in Isfahan and Tehran and wrote a scholarly polemic against Henry Martyn (d. 1812) called Mirʾāt al-ḥaqq…مجذوب-علي-شاه 2a/

I just talked to a close relative in Garmdareh, a town localed in West if Tehran, where explosions were reportedly heard.

This is what she told me: No blackout at all. I heard 3 to 4 mortar-like blasts at midnight. There were not that strong! #Iran #Tehran
I have lived in #Garmdareh for nearly 25 years and know every corner of the area! It used to be a countryside area full of gardens up until 15 years ago before it became a city. It’s now a fully residential area. There are some military garrisons around though. #Iran #Tehran
There has been no huge explosion! No blackout, emergency situation! I have relatives living in #Garmdareh .Let’s stop spreading unconfirmed fake news! There are garrisons around but no missile site! #Iran #tehranexplosion

#BREAKING: It seems that the #Israel Defense Force is now retaliating the #IRGC's Cyber Attack at the #Israel's water desalination facilities few months ago. It was first started in #Shiraz & now happened in east of #Tehran. The power stations are exploding one by one!
I can see the news about explosion of power stations in #Shiraz everywhere. These attacks are similar to the ones carried out by the #US in #Venezuela.
According to these Instagram posts, the electricity is totally cut in multiple districts of the city of #Shiraz. Still No report about the reason of that silent explosion or massive orange light in south of #Tehran. It might be a luminous object for deception of SAM sites.

(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
