London, 28 Sep - US intelligence suggests that Iranian-backed militias and proxy forces could be planning an attack on US military forces or interests in the Middle East, according to three defence officials.

The officials said that their concern is mainly focused on the threat from Iran-backed forces in Syria and several other locations in the Middle East – something that they called ongoing and worrisome – but refused to describe the specific intelligence from the recent assessment as more information continues to be gathered through public statements from the mullahs and intercepting overhead satellites.

London, 25 Sep - On Saturday 22nd September, a military parade in Ahvaz in the south-western part of Iran was the target of an attack. There were dozens of people killed and scores more injured. A state news agency said that several civilians, including children, were killed, as well as 12 members of the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

A local Arab separatist group claimed responsibility for the attack but Iranian officials have said that the United States, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were behind the attack.

Iran threatened revenge on those it believes are responsible, escalating tensions between Iran and the Persian Gulf States and the U.S.
