Defend Press Freedom

In honor of World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd, we hope you will consider supporting The Media Line this month.
The role of a free press has been at the foundation of democracies around the world for nearly 200 years.
Yet, in many countries, publications are censored and journalists put their lives at risk to report the truth.
A transparent and reliable press covering the important issues of the Middle East is needed more than ever.

The Media Line is proud to assume this responsibility and has over 20 years of success in shaping the role of news reporting in the region. We hope you will support our efforts by making a donation today.

Thank you!

Thank you for confidence in The Media Line.

Zarif Threatens Israel After ‘Very Bad Gamble’

Zarif Threatens Israel After ‘Very Bad Gamble’

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Tuesday continued to sound off on Sunday’s mysterious explosion at the Natanz nuclear facility, again blaming Israel for the incident and warning the Jewish state it had made a “very bad gamble.” During a joint press conference with his Russian counterpart, Zarif said Israel “thought the attack will weaken Iran’s hand in the nuclear talks” currently held in Vienna between Tehran and world powers, but that “on the contrary, it will only strengthen” Iran’s position. On Monday, Zarif promised to exact revenge for the alleged strike on the Natanz site, which led to the crash of the plant’s electric grid and was estimated by unnamed Western intelligence officials to set the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program back by close to a year. “I assure you that in the near future more advanced uranium enrichment centrifuges will be placed in the Natanz facility,” Zarif said Tuesday. Last week’s round of indirect negotiations between Tehran and Washington was said to be “constructive” by all sides.
