Iran has revealed its first domestic fighter jet, “Kowsar,” at a defense show. President Hassan Rouhani has apparently been checking the readiness of the aircraft himself, as he was spotted sitting in the cockpit. “Why does the United States not attack us? Because of our power, because it knows the consequences,” the Iranian president Hassan Rouhani said.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan called for a ceasefire in the rebel-held region of Idlib in northwest Syria on Friday and said an anticipated government assault on insurgents there could result in a massacre. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said Moscow opposed a truce, and Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani said Syria must regain control over all its territory.
