NCRI - Lebanon is a small country with an incredible amount of outside influence but due to domestic instability, it remains intrinsically involved many regional crises.
When Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri resigned at the start of the month from Riyadh, some members of the government, such as the foreign minister and president himself, chose to escalate the situation by refusing to accept the resignation and accusing Saudi Arabia of kidnapping Hariri.
NCRI - When Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri resigned in early November, he noted that it was because of threats on his life by the Iranian Regime and the Hezbollah terrorist group that Iran controls.
Many Hezbollah allies, including Lebanese President Michael Aoun, denied this and instead claimed that there was a plot by Saudi Arabia who had kidnapped Hariri. This could not be further from the truth.
In fact, Lebanon is the one who has been kidnapped by a terrorist cell whose only loyalty is to the Iranian Regime.
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.
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 - 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 - Thirty-seven-year-old Zuhair Ebrahim Jassim Abdullah Abas was arrested by Bahraini authorities. The terror suspect was apprehended on charges relating to the attack on a police bus that killed police officer Salman Anjam and wounded nine others near the kingdom’s capital.
The authorities in Bahrain were also able to identify a cell that is being backed by Iranian regime and they discovered several plots that it was involved in. One plot involved bombings in oil pipelines.
NCRI - The Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir accused the Iran-backed Hezbollah of hijacking Lebanon, noting that it is the root of all of Lebanon’s problems, on Thursday, November 16.
He said, during a joint press conference with his French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian, that Hezbollah’s continuous interferences in the affairs of other Arab countries- which they do mostly at the behest of the Iranian Regime- will only worsen the situation in Lebanon.

Ten reasons why the Iranian regime is more dangerous than Daesh
Western powers place Daesh at the top of their counterterrorism and foreign policy agenda, characterizing the terrorist group as the No. 1 national security threat. Before Daesh, it was Al-Qaeda. This strategic and security prioritization is misplaced. For the following reasons, the Iranian regime is far more of a security threat to the world than non-state terrorist groups such as Daesh.
