The Iranian foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, has, in a post on his Twitter account, indirectly attacked Riyadh for preparing the grounds for the terrorist assaults on the Iranian Parliament and the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini. Scores of people were wounded.

He added that the large number of terrorist operations thwarted by Iran had pushed the terrorists into engaging in the Wednesday attacks. According to Iranian authorities, the team of five that carried out the attack was able to hide and evade authorities after the raid on Abu Ayesha's hideout.

Alavi also said that Iran had prevented over 100 terrorist attacks in the last two years.

Gal Gadot earned way less than you'd think for Wonder Woman
What this report didn't state was that he actually earned around $300k as his upfront salary and the rest in bonuses. So if Gadot signed a deal similar to Cavill's, the " Wonder Woman " bonus checks should soon be rolling in.
