8:02 pm
a yard in his car outside his home in a separate development, iran's state t. he earlier announced that members of an israeli intelligence network have been found and arrested abbas as lonnie is a senior research fellow at the center for middle east at strategic studies. which is a think tank based entirely on the joins us live from there. now, thanks for being with us here on the program. what, what do you make up? what's happened? well, we do not have much information that fascination some iranian officials, including the attorney general wrong have a visit to the scene. the, i think the further information we can receive, we can have a better evaluation. but this is not for sure. the 1st time that we are seeing that mentions are taking place in the wrong that have been examples in the past, specifically in the science or some officials in the past. and most of the time they really are, americans have been at fault. you know,
8:03 pm
in cases they have been trying to tar influential figures. so i've been a find this or someone who has a skill or as an important position. and sometimes i can say that some of those sub conscious bandwidth is that they want to accept against the country have been aiming to create a psychology. and so i called a ration against the countries, specifically at the time that the country and the government is trying to make some economic reforms in the country in order to maybe to provoke and secure the country . and i think in this case, the further information we can have in future, we can have a better evaluation. but the aim that they remove being potential figure who was a member of the gc or may be some somehow to create a psychological operation of the country. the iranian forces announced earlier that
8:04 pm
they had arrested and is re the cell. do you think these 2 events are linked as well? that group which has been arrested by random security agencies. they are not related to this. let's say i start messing case that was related to the group that they said that was provoking a chaos in the country. or there was a case in the past that there was for this used in the past that the a person was, let's say kid in a car. and they were claiming that he was the member of could force of i n, g, c. there was a claim by it's released today by the announcement that they've been published by the gc. they said that they have captured them. the rest of the members who had made some other as well as the measures. and they said that this could be a big kid mapping as well as trying to make some fabricated
8:05 pm
a admission which i can shoot him back, can refer to that may be issue, which is somehow irrelevant to what happened today. and i think for the case stuff that they need to a some time in order to have more information or i think the security organizations will meet from time to i think, to pursue the issue. and these 2 are irrelevant, but they might maybe share something in common. and that you know, is really mostly, sometimes a most of the time in coordination with the americans. they have been trying to use different tools, including assassination, sometimes provoking may be on best the country using sanctions against the country or sabotage. is that a facilities or science in iran?
8:06 pm
i can say that may be those behind this actions and issues can she can from will be similar. but the, necessarily, these to the issues that happened in the nation are resting the group, which was something related to the past. the do not necessarily relate to each other. does this show in any way that the security situation in tehran isn't as tight as it could be? you know, this is something which i think a by psychology race and maybe it's really are american, are aiming to portray that what is happening in the wrong one of the things is that in the past it was among the public that the, you know, there are economic difficulty in the country, but the security comparing to some other regional country. it seems that the
8:07 pm
men, you know, some players or actors are trying to, we can best and to say that in addition to the economic difficulty also there is no security needed in iran as well. and i think that time also important in this context and we're seeing that the government is making some economic reforms that can be potential and maybe for some protest and the fancy. so, you know, this can somehow, the, you know, is intended to create a, let's say, a take or may be, you know, imagination among the public. that may be situation as fragile iran try to argue against this, however, that it's really an american one to make this argument. but so far, you know, the country has trying to make sure that the security of the stability is in
8:08 pm
place. and so far as you know, the supply, some speculation that i think the situation so far has been some house table in the country. but for sure some countries in the region or someplace like is really as they will try to somehow the civilized, the country. but that have been many other attempts to sometimes assassinate people sometimes to you know to, to do sabotaged. but i sabotaged in different parts of the country. many of them have failed on the, on the run has been able to find them. but some of them sometimes happen like what happened today. so it seems that there is a battle in the both sides. iran trying to resist against those pressures of different types of kinds. but on the other side,
8:09 pm
the other part is one to somehow continue on. sometimes to increase the pressure against the country to gain some compromises in the region. and to weaken the ron. i mean, in the longest. ok of us as learning from offensive for middle east strategic studies. thank you for insights. here today was i'm thinking the ukraine now were russian forces are stepping up there bombardment of front lines, cities nearly 3 months after invading. russia is trying to secure and expand its gains and the eastern dumbass region and don't ukraine southern coast among the cities hitter cave in the northeast and make alive and as a provision in the south. a reporter i said, bake is in front of a town, pitted with craters. there's been fighting,

hard to see it, not also as a form of garnering publicity, is certainly the, by the ministration, hoping that it's good publicity showing that they're doing everything. they can even me using the military to address this acute problem. but really, it may be a 2 edged sword because it also brings attention to the need for this to happen in the 1st place. this critical shortage of baby formula down some 40 percent in stock than at normal levels. it's been plaguing american parents and families. now since february, that is when abbot nutrition, the major manufacturer, baby formula, us had to close one of its factories to, to contamination concerns. there were 4 children who were sickened after drinking formula made there 2 of whom died the f. d. a investigated and says that the plant is now cleared. however, it still has yet to resume production. that is set to be happening in the coming days. and it will still be perhaps 2 months, according to the manufacturer before they are able to get that formula back on to
