Saturday, 25 March 2023 Strikes on Iranian-linked bases will be met with an "immediate counter-response" after the reported deaths of 19 people in US attacks on Syria, an Iranian security spokesperson has warned.
Pro-Iranian forces in Syria have said they have a “long arm” to respond to further United States air strikes on their positions, after an exchange of missile and drone attacks in Syria over the last 24 hours.

A teenage Islamic State fanatic has been jailed for life for plotting a terror attack on British police officers or soldiers after being radicalised online during the pandemic. Muslim convert Matthew King, 19, expressed a desire to kill military personnel as he prepared to stake out a British Army barracks in Stratford, east London. He discussed his plans and shared a "gory fantasy" with an online girlfriend with whom he struck up an adolescent flirtation, the Old Bailey heard. His desires to launch an attack in Britain or travel to Syria to join so-called Islamic State were thwarted when his mother reported him to the Prevent counter-terrorism programme. Report by Jonesia.

Russia has accused United States intelligence agencies of hacking thousands of iPhones belonging to Russian users and foreign diplomats in the country. Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) says that it has discovered an "intelligence action" that had compromised the phones of Russians as well as diplomats from Israel, Syria, China and NATO members. The statement from the FSB was scant on details and didn’t identify which U.S. intelligence agency was behind the alleged attacks. The FSB claimed that Apple, the maker of iPhone, works closely with U.S. intelligence, particularly the National Security Agency. The attacks were linked to SIM cards registered with Russia-based diplomats for NATO countries, Israel and China. Separately, the Moscow-based cybersecurity company Kaspersky also published a blog post saying iPhones belonging to several dozen of its employees had been hacked, and it included technical details of how the operation allegedly worked. The hack went undetected for years, according to the timeline on the blog post. Kaspersky didn’t identify who it believed was behind the attack, which it described as an "extremely complex, professional targeted cyberattack." The company stated that file-stealing malware had been incorporated into its staff's devices that were operating on an old software version.
