The Mideast shock: Calm for now, but the worry lingers on

There is speculation that Iran may engage in some proxy action in Lebanon or Iraq

  • To compensate for the imbalance, Iran has developed "asymmetrical" responses - ballistic missiles, deadly drones and a web of militia allies in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen, among other things - with the aim of being able to inflict pain while avoiding the traditional battlefield.

    ​Last week's killing of Qasem Soleimani in a US drone strike at Baghdad airport surprised many of Washington's allies and triggered calls for de-escalation. But Tehran has vowed to avenge the commander, and US President Donald Trump has threatened "major retaliation" if any American targets are hit.

    Sunday's attack was the second night in a row that the Green Zone was hit and the 14th time over the last two months that US installations have been targeted. Ties between Iraq and the US have deteriorated after an American drone attack killed Iran's Major General Qasem Soleimani near the Baghdad international airport .

    The conflict flared after unprecedented anti-government protests in the southern city of Daraa on March 15, 2011. Demonstrations spread across Syria and were brutally suppressed by the regime, triggering a multi-front armed conflict that has drawn in jihadists and foreign powers. The conflict has displaced or sent into exile around 13 million Syrians.

    The police had found materials such as banners, flags and pamphlets. According to the police, the strategy was to call a large number of people for the protests for which groups were made on social media websites and photos and videos were shared to incite people against the CAA as well as the NRC.

    The ISIS inspired terror module was planning a blast at the Dudhnoi Rasleela Mela in Assam before carrying out another blast in Delhi. The police profiled them using their social media posts and activities.

    Manseed Muhmood, Swalih Mohammed, Rashid Ali, Ramshad, Safvan and Moinuddin have been found guilty under various sections of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) including offences relating to membership of a terrorist organisation and support given to a terrorist organisation. Special judge P Krishnakumar, however, acquitted Jasim N K.

    Police say that the three accused were about to plant an IED during the on-going Raas festival in Dudhnoi. The arrested have been identified as Luit Zameel Zaman, Mukadir Islam, and Ranjeet Islam. Police recovered an IED besides one kilogram of explosives, material like nails, ball bearings used in making bombs, baton swords, and four mobile phones.

    Soleimani was the face of armed resistance against ISIS in Iraq and Syria and contributed in a big way in defeating ISIS, said an expert wishing to go anonymous. Last year Soleimani had also slammed Pakistan for its failure to control terror groups on its soil that targeted Iranian Revolutionary Guards group.

    The Indian delegation to the two day seminar on terrorism was led by minister of state G Kishan Reddy, who is also in charge of internal security at the home ministry. Discussing case studies on Islamic State-inspired modules, New Delhi said that most suspects were loosely connected to the Caliphate but followed its ideology.
