Reuters have reported that the Republican leaders of the U.S. House of Representatives plan to vote as soon as mid-November on a 10-year reauthorization of the Iran Sanctions Act. This news, told by congressional aides, could provoke a “potential showdown with the White House and Senate”.
The Iran Sanctions Act (ISA), due to expire on 31st December, allows trade, energy, defense and banking industry sanctions over Iran’s nuclear program and ballistic missile testing.
IRGC brigadier Mohmmad Ali Jaafari, head of the IRGC, gave a speech during a ceremony for the IRGC members that have been killed in Syria. He once again insisted that the dispatch of a large number of forces to Syria is necessary. He said that killing the defenceless people of Syria is “defending the sanctity of the leader and revolution”. He also said that the “armed struggle of the Islamic revolution beyond Iran’s borders is a very big and divine blessing that not everyone will have”.
In the English edition of Asharq Al-Awsat, Eli Lake wrote an article about Hillary Clinton and her private scepticism and concerns about the Iranian regime.
Hillary Clinton allegedly said after the 2013 elections in Iran that Hassan Rouhani had only won because it was allowed by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the Revolutionary Guard Corps.
