QUETTA, Pakistan – Pakistani police say militants in two attacks on security forces killed six paramilitary troops in the southwestern Baluchistan bordering Iran.
Local police officer Hidayat Ullah said Monday that four troops were killed Sunday when gunmen opened fire on security forces in the town of Turbat. Two troops were killed in the southwestern town of Loralai a day earlier.

No one immediately claimed responsibility, but suspicion fell on militants and the Islamic State group, which emerged as a major force behind violence in the region in recent years.

Sunday's two attacks on Pakistani troops came days after an attack on Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard killed 27.

Iran claims that attack was "planned and carried out from inside Pakistan." Pakistan rejected the charge and condemned the violence in Iran and offered cooperation.

Rouhani to unveil Fateh submarine Sunday

https://en.mehrnews.com/news/142563/Rouh...ine-Sunday

Rouhani will make a visit to Hormozgan province, southern Iran, to inaugurate several projects also to introduce a new member to Iran’s naval fleet, Fateh submarine.
Fateh (Conqueror) is a 100% domestically-manufactured submarine. The 600-ton Fateh is among semi-heavy submarines and is equipped with state-of-the-art weaponry such as torpedoes and naval mines. It can operate more than 200 meters below the sea surface for near five weeks, according to Navy officials.
Commander of Iranian Army’s Navy Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi said last Tuesday that the next-generation Fateh-class submarine would join the Navy's fleet in late January.

14 February 2019 Tehran, Iran.
A suicide bombing hit a bus carrying members of the Iranian military's elite Revolutionary Guard in the southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan, killing at least 23 and wounding 17, according to the semiofficial Fars News Agency.
Iranian state media has offered differing death tolls for the attack, ranging from 27 to 41.
A  terorist group called Jaish al-Adl, or Army of Justice, has claimed responsibility, according to state-run news agency IRNA.
The terorist attack took place on a desert road near Iran's volatile border with Pakistan and Afghanistan, where the group is known to operate. It comes two days after Iran marked the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.
The truck was loaded with explosives when it detonated and struck the bus carrying members of the guard who were coming back from "a border guarding mission," Fars reported.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said Iran will seek revenge for the suicide attack, according to the news agency.
"The self-sacrificing military and intelligence children of the people of Iran will take revenge for the blood of the martyrs of this incident," Qassemi said.
Ali Fadavi, a commander Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corp, has promised a strong response to the deadly bombing, Fars reported.
"Our response, aimed at safeguarding the Islamic Revolution, shall not be limited only to the geography which pertains just to us," Fadavi said.
The bombing happened as world leaders gathered in Warsaw, Poland, for a meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The meeting has been billed as a conference to counter Iran's military expansion.

A former Air Force counterintelligence specialist, a technical sergeant, who defected to Iran about five years after leaving the Air Force, has been charged with revealing classified information as well as research about her former colleagues to representatives of the Tehran government, prosecutors said Wednesday.

A Justice Department indictment charges former Air Force Tech. Sgt. Monica Elfriede Witt, who defected in 2013 and is currently at-large, along with four Iranian hackers who, prosecutors say, used the information she provided to target former colleagues in the U.S. intelligence community.

The indictment says the four Iranians were acting on behalf of the government-linked Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps. All four remain at large.

Witt, who was born in El Paso, Texas, joined the Air Force on Dec, 17, 1997, and served as an airborne crypto linguist, according to information provided by the Air Force. She later changed jobs and became a special agent with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations. Her last assignment before separating as an E-6 on June 12, 2008, was with the 2nd Field Investigations Squadron, Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, the Air Force said.

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Iran is waiting for Lebanon to show a desire to accept its military assistance, Iran's foreign minister said on Sunday, reiterating an offer of support to the U.S.-backed Lebanese military.
Mohammad Javad Zarif, whose government backs the powerful Lebanese Shi'ite group Hezbollah, was speaking at Beirut airport at the start of his first visit to Lebanon since its new government was formed late last month.
Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said last week he was ready to secure air defence systems for the Lebanese army from Iran to confront Israeli warplanes and to secure "everything it wants to be the strongest army in the region".
Asked if Iran was ready to offer military aid, Zarif said: "We always have this type of readiness and we announced on other occasions that this tendency exists in Iran but we are waiting for this desire to exist on the Lebanese side."

The United States, which lists Hezbollah as a terrorist group, says its military aid to Lebanon aims to strengthen the army as "the sole" military force defending the country and to counter threats from neighbouring Syria.
The new Lebanese national unity government is led by the Western-backed Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri and groups most of the main political factions, including Hezbollah, which has expanded its role in the new cabinet.
Zarif, who is due to meet government officials on Monday, said his visit aimed to declare Iran's support for Lebanon and to announce that it "has complete and comprehensive readiness to deal with the brotherly Lebanese government in all areas".
In a speech last week, Nasrallah asked why Lebanon was "ignoring" Iran while "offering our necks to others" - an apparent reference to the United States, which has tightened sanctions against his group.
The make-up of Hariri's government largely reflects the result of a parliamentary election last year, in which Hezbollah and groups that support its possession of arms secured more than 70 of the 128 seats in parliament.
The role of Hezbollah, a heavily armed group founded by Iran's Revolutionary Guards in 1982, has grown through its naming of the new health minister - the first time it has controlled a ministry with a large budget.

Iran's latest ballistic missile Dezful with a range of 1000 km is from Iranian Fateh-class missle and its warhead weights two times of a Zolfiqar warhead.
This is very important step,tactical balistic missile with such range will boost Iran first strike capatibilities,considering it is solid state missile and thus quazi-balistic missile this is huge boost....Solid state missile doesn't require preparations and huge logistic behind so it can be fired anytime and detection is much harder.Also,when it comes to anti-balistic defense systems low flying quazi-balistic missiles are not only imposible to intercept..it is also hard to detect lunch of these missiles ...these tactical quzi balistic missiles are used against anti balistic defense systems among many other things...1000km is huge boost and gives iran much more space for manuever...

The Iranian Air Force has unveiled its first wide-body unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), which is fully designed and manufactured at home, as the country prepares for celebrations marking the 40th anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

The drone, dubbed Khodkar (Automatic), was showcased at an air defense exhibition in Tehran on Thursday.

The UAV -- an upgraded version of T-33 training aircraft -- is equipped with two cameras; one located beneath the fuselage to contribute to the take-off and landing phases and another on the front side to provide an alternative cockpit view.
The drone also features receiver GPS and GLONASS antennas, data transmitter antennas besides phased array ones.
Khodkar, which uses a turbojet J85 engine, is also capable of recording data and could be employed in surveillance and combat missions. It was among a number of other fighter jets put on display at the exhibition. 
The exhibition will be open to public until February 11, which marks the anniversary of the Islamic Revolution of 1979, which toppled the former US-backed Pahlavi regime.

Speaking at the exhibition's opening ceremony, Iranian Army Commander General Abdolrahim Mousavi hailed the country's achievements in the air defense sector over the past four decades.
"The Iranian nation put up 40 years of resistance and successfully moved on from sanctions," he said.
The senior military official also said Iran's defense equipment serves not only combat missions, but also rescue and search operations when natural disasters hit.
The Iranian Armed Forces also unveiled new military hardware, including drones and missiles, on Wednesday during another exhibition called Eqtedar 40, held at Imam Khomeini Grand Prayer Grounds in Tehran.
