Iranian Dipomatic Office Attacked In Washington

The office of the Interests Section of the Islamic Republic of Iran has become the target of an attack just hours after President Donald Trump made a speech announcing he would not certify the Iran deal. The identity of the suspects who fired bullets into the building is unknown but authorities say the attackers also used an air gun and rocks to assail the building. Mehdi Atefat, the head of the office, said windows were shattered and some bullets even went deeper into the building.

Graffiti was also left behind, the assailants wrote anti-Islamic slogans on the walls of the building. In his speech, President Trump also said he might ultimately terminate the deal with Iran all together, something which would put the US at odds with the many other world powers who signed it. The President has yet to terminate the deal but in the meantime gave the US Congress 60 days to decide whether to reinstate sanctions that were lifted on Iran during the signing of the original deal. Some would argue the deal is the culmination of multilateral diplomacy and was a huge victory for the Obama Administration.

President Trump also said in the same speech he was authorizing the US Treasury Department to impose further sanctions on “the entire” Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) for “its support for terrorism.” The President of Iran dismissed Trump's speech about the Islamic Republic as insults and delirious talk but his body language and glistening forehead made him appear to be sweating bullets.
