Houthis hit Saudi airport in drone attack

Oil Heads for Weekly Increase on Heightened U.S.-Iran Tensions

Oil Heads for Weekly Increase on Heightened U.S.-Iran Tensions

Pompeo said he would stop in the two countries on his way to India, where he begins a visit on Tuesday.

In a statement, the Saudi-led coalition group, who is battling the Houthis in Yemen, said: "A terrorist attack by the Iran-backed Houthi militia targeted Abha airport, killing a Syrian resident and wounding seven civilians".

It was a week of topsy-turvy pronouncements on U.S. policy toward Iran that careened between the bellicose, the conciliatory and back again after Iran shot down an American military drone and boasted it would not bow to Washington's pressure.

'You've seen that child-like map that Foreign Minister Zarif put out that contrasts with the excellence and professionalism of America's military and intelligence services, ' Pompeo said. "The only way for enemies is to respect Iran's territorial integrity and national interests", Salami said.

Pompeo also promised even tighter sanctions on the country, saying a "significant set" of new economic conditions will be released Monday.

The Trump administration has combined a "maximum pressure" campaign of economic sanctions with a buildup of American forces in the region following the United States withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.

In response to IRNA's question on Europe's commitments under the JCPOA and the future of the deal, Kharrazi said, "We are waiting to see what measure Europe will take within two weeks".

"We want them to be more desperate", McCaul told "Face the Nation" Sunday.

"Iran's continued pursuit of nuclear weapons; its threats to exceed the limits set in the failed nuclear deal in the coming days; its continuing buildup of menacing Quds Force capabilities in Syria and Iraq; its supply of sophisticated drones, missiles and other advanced weapons to hostile surrogate forces in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and Afghanistan; and continued threat and acts of aggression against Israel, our allies in the Arabian Gulf and against United States personal and assets across the Middle East, are not signs of a nation seeking peace".

"Neither Iran nor any other hostile actor should mistake USA prudence and discretion for weakness. As President Trump said on Friday our military is rebuilt, new and ready to go", Bolton said during an appearance with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, himself a longtime and outspoken Iran critic.

Although the USA may be ramping up cyberattacks against Iran, the country is believed to have been targeting US and its allies in cyberattacks well before the latest drama in the region. "No one has granted them a hunting license in the Middle East", Bolton said during a visit to Israel.

On day one, it had collected Rs 20 Crores, thereby surpassing the opening day business of Shahid's latest outing, " Padmaavat ". The success also meant that the actor's wife, Mira Rajput, was spot on with her predictions about Shahid's future career graph.

Netanyahu said Sunday he is ready to "consider" a US plan to resolve his country's long-running conflict with the Palestinians.

The president said he called off the air strikes after being told 150 Iranians would be killed.

The Palestinian leadership has already rejected the plan, citing U.S.

'Israel's presence here must continue for Israel's security and the security of all'.

Iran has denied responsibility for the attacks.

"Donald Trump is running a one-man show".

Tehran has denied involvement in the tanker attacks.

Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas said Sunday he was confident the Bahrain conference would fail.

"We call on the Houthis to immediately end all restrictions on aid agencies to ensure the delivery of life-saving assistance to those Yemenis most in need".

Where all the reports agree, including one from The Washington Post, is that President Trump signed off on the cyberattack at around the same time Thursday he decided against supporting military strikes against the country.
