DUBAI (Reuters) - Prominent Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was injured in an assassination attempt near Tehran on Friday and was being treated in a hospital, Iranian media reported. The semi-official Fars News Agency, affiliated with Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards, named the nuclear scientist injured in the reported attack as Fakhrizadeh. But there was no official confirmation of a death, and Tehran’s nuclear energy body said there had been no incident involving a nuclear scientist. Fakhrizadeh is thought to have headed what the U.N. nuclear watchdog and U.S. intelligence services believe was a coordinated nuclear weapons programme in Iran shelved in 2003. Israel has also described the AMAD Plan as Iran’s secret nuclear weapons programme, and says it seized a large chunk of an Iranian nuclear “archive” detailing its work.

ANTWERP, Belgium (Reuters) - An Iranian diplomat and three other Iranians went on trial in Belgium on Friday accused of planning to bomb a meeting of an exiled opposition group in France in 2018, the first time an EU country has put an Iranian official on trial for terrorism. “I think the words ‘brave little Belgium’ are entirely appropriate today,” said Rik Vanreusel, a lawyer for the civil party. France has said Iran’s intelligence ministry was behind the 2018 plot and it expelled an Iranian diplomat. The EU also froze the assets of an Iranian intelligence unit and its officials. European countries have blamed Iran for other suspected plots against dissidents, including two killings in the Netherlands in 2015 and 2017 and a foiled assassination in Denmark.

FILE PHOTO: Elliott Abrams speaks during a news conference at the State Department, in Washington, U.S., March 31, 2020. Biden, set to take office on Jan. 20, has said he will return the United States to the Obama-era deal if Iran resumes compliance. Abrams, at a virtual Beirut Institute event, said the Trump administration plans further pressure on Tehran, with sanctions related to arms, weapons of mass destruction and human rights. Abrams said he expects a negotiation to take place with Iran next year and that he believes a deal will be struck under the Biden administration. Abrams on Wednesday announced Iran-related sanctions on four entities in China and Russia, accusing them of activities promoting Iran’s missile program.

But after three years of "maximum pressure" under Trump's sanctions and dramatically deepened distrust between Tehran and Washington, that may be a lot further off than it sounds. Iran's economy has contracted on average 6% each year since Trump unilaterally withdrew from the multi-country deal, brokered under the Obama administration to curb Iran's nuclear activity in exchange for sanctions relief. Fear of a Trump returnBut for Biden, the Iran deal is likely not a top priority post-inauguration: His first six months are set to be consumed with tackling the coronavirus pandemic and a battered U.S. economy. And within the U.S., national security experts are skeptical of real compliance from Iran if Washington dives into the deal too eagerly. "But we should probably expect Iran to take advantage of this initial goodwill rollback and to try to get as much as they can out of a Biden administration while giving very little themselves."

WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden has promised to rejoin the Iran nuclear agreement if Iran abides by the deal, but both sides will have to race against the clock and navigate a political minefield to reach that goal. Iran and the bombThe 2015 agreement between Iran and world powers lifted punishing economic sanctions on Tehran in return for strict limits on Iran's nuclear activities. If Iran returns to strict compliance with the nuclear deal, the United States would rejoin the agreement as a starting point for follow-on negotiations," Biden wrote. Iran faces shortages of medicine and medical equipment, including insulin, drugs for cancer treatment, influenza vaccine and test kits for the coronavirus, according to Iranian officials. Conservative gainsWithout a deal before Iran's June 2021 elections, Biden may have no willing counterpart to negotiate a deal.

The United Arab Emirates, which has also normalised ties with Israel, sent a delegation last month that did not leave Ben Gurion Airport in what was described as a coronavirus precaution. The Bahraini envoys went on to Jerusalem, which Israel, with U.S. backing, considers its capital. The Bahraini delegation travelled on Gulf Air flight GF972 - a reference to Israel’s telephone country code - in what was the airline’s first flight to Tel Aviv. Al-Zayani predicted 14 such flights weekly starting next year, as well as flights to the smaller Israeli destinations of Haifa and Eilat. Sudan followed Bahrain and UAE in announcing last month it would move towards ties with Israel.

Canberra, Australia (CNN) Australian elite forces allegedly killed 39 Afghans civilians and prisoners unlawfully in an environment where "blood lust" and "competition killings" were reportedly a norm, according to a long-awaited official report. Speaking Thursday, chief of the Australian Defense Force Gen. Angus Campbell said there had been a "warrior culture" among some members of Australia's special forces serving in Afghanistan. More than 26,000 Australian soldiers served in Afghanistan during Operation Slipper, 41 of whom died while fighting there. There are still about 80 personnel from the Australian Defense Forces in Afghanistan, according to the Department of Defense website, mostly involved in support and training. According to US military prosecutors, a group of US Army soldiers killed Afghan civilians for sport beginning in January 2010.

"A momentous day for the international community, which — in defiance of malign US efforts—has protected UNSC Res. Washington has already threatened to slap sanctions on any individual or entity supporting Iran's weapons program. The FDD is highly critical of the 2015 nuclear deal, which gave Iran sanctions relief in exchange for curbs to its nuclear program. Given its strained budget, Iran will likely pursue more selective modernization, Ben Taleblu said, "with a likely emphasis on homeland defense and long-range strike capability." The U.S. was overwhelmingly defeated by other U.N. Security Council members when it attempted to extend the arms embargo in August.
