The US is supplying arms to the Kurds in Syria for its own goals, says investigative journalist Rick Sterling. Thinking it will be able to recover those weapons once ISIS is defeated is a fairytale, adds writer Martin Jay.

Iran’s security forces have killed the alleged mastermind of Wednesday’s terrorist attacks. The twin assault claimed 17 lives when four armed assailants raided the country’s Parliament while a suicide bomber struck at the Imam Khomeini Mausoleum.
