Iranian Calls for Attacks on Western Airline Offices
A prominent Iranian hardliner has called for attacks against American and European airline offices over their refusal to supply fuel to Iranian aircraft.
Hossein Shariatmadari, a representative of Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, wrote in an editorial in his Kayhan
daily on Tuesday that American and European airlines should be "taught an unforgettable lesson." Iran already has banned the supply of jet fuel to European airlines in a tit-for-tat move.
