Iran Regime's Influence in Lebanon Sparking New Crisis

NCRI Staff

NCRI - Nabil de Freij, a Lebanese politician and future parliamentary bloc MP, said earlier this week that the sovereignty of Lebanon is being violated with the interference of Iran in Lebanese political matters. He also said that Iranian regime has contributed to the decision by Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri to resign.

The Prime Minister had a number of reasons that led him to withdraw from the political settlements that had been reached previously between several different political parties in the country. De Freij said that another contributing factor was Iranian regime’s attempts to normalise Lebanon’s relations with Syria during a visit to the Syrian capital made by its allies recently.

NCRI - A Burkan-2H (Volcano) ballistic missile was launched toward Riyadh by Houthi forces in Yemen and intercepted by a U.S.-supplied Patriot defense system on November 4th. On the outskirts of King Khalid International Airport, wreckage from the missile fell on the northern edge of the Saudi capital, indicating that it overflew the densely populated city.

Previously on May 19, the Houthis fired a Burkan-2 variant at the city just hours before President Trump touched down for a visit. However, this latest strike follows the U.S.

Consequences of Iran Regime's Interventionist Policies and Terrorism in the Region

NCRI - Following the resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister, Saad Hariri, defying the Iranian regime's interference in Lebanon and Arab countries and subsequent developments, the Iranian regime's media outlets described the developments as sensitive and accelerating and worrisome.

The state-run Kayhan newspaper affiliated to the regime’s leader, Ali Khamenei, wrote: “The suspicious resignation of Saad Hariri, the Ansarullah missile attack on the Riyadh International Airport and the eradication of the Saudi princes by Mohammed bin Salman, are three very important events that are linked, a bit more or less, both to Iran and to the accelerating and decisive developments in the region and the end of ISIS's rule. But how?”

US Calls for Iran to Be Dealt With After Missile Attack

NCRI - In the latest escalation of relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia, Houthi rebels backed by Iran made threats to attack airports and ports in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and in Saudi Arabia. The crown prince has since said that Iran’s aggression via the Houthi rebels is unacceptable and that it must be held accountable for shipping missiles to them. He added that this should be regarded as “an act of war”.

Iran Regime Affiliated Houthis Threaten to Attack Saudi Arabia and UAE

NCRI - Two days after Iran’s state-owned Kayhan newspaper (affiliated to Khamenei) wrote a threatening editorial titled “Firing Ansarullah’s missile at Riyadh, the next target is Dubai," the political office of pro-Iran regime Houthis echoed the threat and threatened in a statement on Tuesday November 7 that “All airports, ports, border crossings and important areas of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates will be the direct target of our weapons.”

Saudi Arabia Closes Yemen Ports After Iran Regime-Backed Houthis Launch Missile Attack on Riyadh

NCRI Staff

NCRI - The Saudi-led coalition that is fighting in Yemen closed off all of the land, sea and air ports on Monday after a ballistic missile fired by the Houthi rebels targeted Riyadh’s international airport.

The Saudis warned that this missile attack, which they believe was set up by the Iranian Regime, could be "considered as an act of war".

The statement read: "Iran's role and its direct command of its Houthi proxy in this matter constitutes a clear act of aggression that targets neighbouring countries, and threatens peace and security in the region and globally. Therefore, the coalition's command considers this a blatant act of military aggression by the Iranian regime, and could rise to be considered as an act of war against the kingdom of Saudi Arabia."

Iran Regime's Links to Al-Qaeda Exposed

NCRI Staff

NCRI - Following the CIA’s release of nearly half a million documents confiscated during the 2011 Navy SEAL raid which killed Osama Bin Laden, a deep relationship between the Iranian Regime and al-Qaeda has been uncovered.

This is not surprising to those in the intelligence communities who have know that the relationship between the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism and the Sunni terror cell dates back to at least 1991, when Iran needed help spreading its ideological revolution and attacking American interests in the Middle East and al-Qaeda needed money and training to pull off terrorist attacks.
