NCRI - The Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) have found new, secret shipping routes to smuggle arms to the Houthi rebels in Yemen, in defiance of an international embargo.
Earlier reports indicated that the IRGC, the Regime’s personal terror squad, had been smuggling weapons either directly into Yemen or via Somalia but this risked contact with international naval vessels in Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea, so for the last six months the IRGC has been shipping them in Kuwaiti waters where there is less security.
NCRI - A regional expert said in an interview with Sky News on July 30, 2017: “The Iranian regime thinks Persian Gulf states cannot come face to face with the regime and block its projects. This is the view of the Iranian regime's leader towards the Gulf States, especially the Kuwaiti government.
Dr. Mohammad al-Sulami added: “From this point of view, when the Iranian regime intervenes in Kuwait, it thinks no Arab country can stand against it, and the government of Kuwait cannot do anything.”

Securing a corridor through Iraq, Syria and Lebanon that will provide a supply route for Iran, is a move the regime is attempting. It is aimed at maintaining Tehran’s pursuit of its regional policies. However, this objective is in conflict with those of the regional and global coalitions to fight terrorism and extremism.
NCRI - The United States must confront the interference of the Iranian regime and Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Hezbollah is a branch of the Revolutionary Guards that is committing crimes in Syria and other countries.
NCRI - A political scientist at Kuwait University says the terrorist activities of the Iranian regime are a serious threat to Kuwait, a threat to overthrow.
Dr Abdullah Chaychi, professor of political science at the University of Kuwait on July 29, 2017 told Sky News:
NCRI - Kayhan newspaper, affiliated to Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, resorted to threat in response to the US sanctions against the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and wrote on July 27, 2017: “You have 50,000 troops and dozens of bases in the region, wait for the answer.”
NCRI - On July 25, 2017, US congress passed Iran Sanctions Bill to counter with Iranian regime’s ballistic missile program and terrorist activities, and to designate the IRGC as a terrorist group.
The new sanctions are approved following Resistance of Iran’s widespread activities, revealing the IRGC’s role in repression at home and exporting terrorism and fundamentalism abroad, as well as its role in regime’s nuclear and missile program.
