NCRI - Yet again, infighting among the different factions of the Iranian Regime has made headlines across the world, but most of these headlines are focusing on the wrong thing.
The well-publicised argument between Iran’s former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and judiciary chief Ayatollah Sadegh Amoli Larijani and his brother, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani is not notable because of what they are fighting about but because they are fighting in public.
NCRI - The Iranian Regime has two pillars that keep its façade upright while it crumbles elsewhere: domestic repression and the export of fundamentalist Islamic terrorism.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and their militant Quds Force, led by Qassem Suleimani, who is responsible for the IRGC’s extraterritorial operations, are the main parties responsible for this.
Some in the West are fooled by this and the so-called moderate President Hassan Rouhani who tells them not to pay attention to what goes on behind the curtain, but let’s take just a small peek behind that curtain.
NCRI - The Iranian Regime is still a major sponsor of regional terrorist militias and has planted proxy forces in several key areas in order to spread chaos, sectarianism and extremism, according to participants at an annual international security conference in Bahrain.
Bahrain’s Foreign Minister, Shaikh Khalid Bin Ahmad Al Khalifa, told attendees at the Manama Dialogue 2017 that the Iranian Regime had a “network of surrogates” ready to commit acts of violence and destruction across the Middle East, West Africa, and Latin America.
NCRI - Roughly 66,000 people in Iran have HIV and almost half of them are unaware, according to estimates by the Iranian Regime, but as the Regime routinely underreports statistics that make the country look bad, it is likely this number is much higher.
For instance, in 2009, the World Health Organisation estimated that there are over 100,000 AIDS sufferers in Iran out of an 80 million population. HIV develops into AIDS overtime, meaning that the number of HIV sufferers is likely much higher than 66,000.
NCRI - A federal judge has asked Argentina’s Senate to allow the arrest of former president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner for treason, corruption, and charges related to the Iranian Regime’s involvement in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community centre in Buenos Aires, which killed 85 people.
Kirchner, who served as President from 2007 to 2015, was set to begin a term a senator on Sunday, which would give her immunity from arrest.
Maryam Rajavi: Realization of Iranian people’s desire for regime change is essential to human rights in Iran, peace in region and the world
A major demonstration was held in Paris on December 11, to observe the International Human Rights Day (December 10) against the mullahs’ bloodletting regime and executions and torture in Iran.
The NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi sent a message to the demonstration which coincided with the One Plannet Summit in Paris. She said, "Saving human rights and environment in Iran hinges on regime change.”
NCRI - Due to using non-standard and outdated safety equipments, there are currently extremely harsh working conditions in Iran’s coal mines, threatening lives of thousands of the country’s coal miners.
“Lives of 13,000 coal miners are in danger”, says head of Iran’s Coalmine Community.
It is widely agreed that Pyongyang has dramatically deepened its partnership with Tehran's 'Axis of Resistance.’ This according to the 16 agency US Intelligence Community as well as some Asian powers. All are said to believe that the DRNK-IROI partnership seeks the ability to launch nuclear weapons into their perceived enemies. Another recent report has it that North Korea has been benefiting from technical assistance from Russia and Pakistan and sharing some of it with Iran while committing about 25 percent of North Korea’s entire gross domestic product to its nuclear weapons program and much of that to missiles.
NCRI - It is virtually one year that almost on daily basis, we are witnessing demonstrations and protest gathering of thousands of Iranian people in various cities across Iran, against state affiliated financial institutions who have plundered them. The following article is a well-documented research by Alliance for Public Awareness (APA-ICE) about this issue.
The Trump administration plans to install a political appointee at the State Department to a key position managing policy on Iran and Iraq, a move that will replace a career diplomat with a loyal supporter of the president.
Andrew L. Peek, a former captain in the U.S. Army Reserve and member of the president’s State Department transition team, will become the new deputy assistant secretary of state covering Iran and Iraq, according to three State Department officials familiar with the matter.
Saad Hariri orders group leader Qais al-Khazali banned from country after trip organized by Hezbollah, whose regional interventions have drawn premier's ire
BEIRUT — Lebanon’s prime minister on Saturday criticized a visit by an Iranian-backed Iraqi militia leader to Lebanon’s border with Israel, saying it violated local law.

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - United Nations officials have found that missiles fired at Saudi Arabia by Yemen’s Houthi rebels appear to have a “common origin,” but they are still investigating U.S. and Saudi claims that Iran supplied them, according to a confidential report.
The officials traveled to Saudi Arabia to examine the debris of missiles fired on July 22 and Nov. 4, wrote U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in the fourth biannual report on the implementation of U.N. sanctions and restrictions on Iran.
NCRI - Speaking at a conference at the European Parliament on Wednesday, 6 December 2017, British MEP Anthea McIntyre said: “At a time when Islamic fundamentalism is the greatest enemy we face in the world” and “the question of defeating this enemy begins with gender equality, with women’s rights.”
The conference was held in Brussels on the initiative of the Friends of a Free Iran inter-group at the European Parliament, which enjoys the support of several hundred MEPs from various political groups.
