NCRI - Iranian media have stated that a commander in the powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has been killed in fighting against Islamic State (IS) militants in Syria.
The IRGC has been fighting in support of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, a key collaborator of Tehran, during the six-year civil war in Syria.
The state-run Fars news agency reported on November 19 that Khairollah Samadi, an IRGC commander in charge of a unit in Syria, was killed in fighting on November 16 in the town of Albu Kamal, near the Iraqi border.
CAIRO, Nov 19 (KUNA) -- Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir said Sunday Saudi Arabia would not remain silent against "Iranian regime’s blatant aggression," and would defend itself to guarantee safety and security of its people.
Al-Jubeir, addressing an urgent Arab Foreign Ministers' meeting over Iranian regime’s interference in Arab affairs, urged Arab countries to address "Iran's hostile policies." Al-Jubeir, who thanked the Arab countries for accepting Saudi Arabia's request for this urgent meeting, said the Iranian regime was meddling in affairs of the Arab countries to undermine their security and stability, as well as inciting sectarian sedition.

Earthquake in Iran – No. 4
A week after the deadly earthquake in Iran’s western regions, people are still lacking even minimum supplies. Many villages still have no tents, food, water and electricity. The Iranian regime, known for stealing and plundering the people, has left the quake-stricken residents in the winter cold under the rubbles. This has resulted in increasing public hatred.
A helicopter pilot in Fort Abuzar of Sarpol-e Zahab said the following about what he witnessed flying over the earthquake stricken region: “We saw many scenes… different from what you are seeing on [state TV]… the catastrophe we witnessed is far worse and expanded than what is shown on [state TV] or on the internet. What I’m witnessing is people providing aid, and state relief efforts are very weak.”
NCRI - Iran has relied very heavy on Hezbollah as a foreign fighting force. It works side by side with the Iranian military force. Since the eighties it has been involved in some horrific terrorist attacks that have killed many civilians and it has fought several bloody wars.
The attacks it has carried out have been done so on behalf of Iran. Instead of carrying out the attacks itself, Iran can plead innocence if they are done via a proxy.
NCRI - Almost a week ago, an earthquake measuring 7.3 struck the mountainous area in the Iran-Iraq border region. It was felt from as far away as Turkey and there are reports that the death toll is 530.
It was a highly destructive earthquake and tens of thousands of people have been left homeless and left to brave the cold weather conditions.
It was more powerful that the devastating earthquake that hit Mexico a few months ago.
NCRI - On Sunday, November 12, 2017, Mr. Hashem Khastar, representative of the Teachers' Guild Association of Iran, in an article on his Facebook account, addressed Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Iranian regime, while chastising Khamenei and calling him a dictator and expressing hope that the Iranian nation will soon achieve freedom.
The article reads in part:
NCRI - The fingerprints of the Iranian Regime can be found all over their crime scenes in the Middle East, from Yemen to Lebanon to Gaza to Kuwait, and they must be brought to justice.
In the two years since the Saudi-led international coalition entered Yemen to bring stability and reinstate the legitimate Yemeni government of President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi, the Houthi rebel group who deposed Yemen’s ruler has grown from a lightly armed, semi-political faction into a fully-fledged terrorist organisation.
NCRI - The Iranian Regime has always depended on its network of terrorist proxy groups to commits crimes on its behalf across the Middle East. As a result, the Regime spends billions of dollars every year - stolen from the Iranian people- to fund them.
But now, as a strong policy against Iranian aggression in the region starts to take shape, Iran and its proxies find themselves in a dire situation.
NCRI - France wants to get tougher on the Iranian Regime’s ballistic missile programme, calling on Wednesday for an “uncompromising” dialogue and a possible negotiation about the programme separate from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers (France, Britain, China, Germany, Russia and the United States).
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Agnes Romatet-Espagne said: “France is concerned about the continued pace of the Iranian missile program, which does not conform with (U.N.) Security Council Resolution 2231 and which is a source of destabilization and insecurity for the region.”
