News in Brief

Iran executes terrorist ringleader

Iran on Saturday executed a Swedish-Iranian dissident convicted of leading an Arab separatist group which launched several attacks, including one on a military parade in 2018 that killed 25 people, the Iranian Judiciary said.
The Swedish Foreign Ministry said it had summoned Iran’s deputy ambassador to protest the execution of Habib Farajollah Chaab, which it confirmed took place earlier in the day.
Chaab had been sentenced to death for being “corrupt on earth,” a capital offence under Iran’s Islamic laws.
Iran brought him to trial in 2022 on charges of leading the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz, which seeks a separate state in the oil-rich Khuzestan Province in southwestern Iran, and plotting and carrying out “numerous bombings and terrorist operations.”

In an interview with Fars news agency, Irani unveiled plans to equip the country’s destroyers with Abu Mahdi cruise missiles that can perform well in the electronic warfare space, adding that the tests on this missile have been carried out.
He further noted that the combat capability, the destruction rate, and the range of the Abu Mahdi cruise missiles are considerable, adding that increasing the range of the missiles is on the agenda.
