Al-Arabiya denounced that the Iranian regime is smuggling terrorists of al-Qaeda in different countries, in order to achieve its political goals. These terrorists are smuggled in countries like Iraq, Syria, Libya and Turkmenistan. The terrorists are not only entering in organization like Jibhat al-Nusra (today Jabhat Fateh al-Sham), but also inside Daesh.
The report also says that, when Osama Bin Laden was alive, he managed all the relations with Iran. After his death, Iran started a double strategy with the Salafi terrorists on its soil: first, as said before, it smuggled them outside the Islamic Republic. Second, is using them as a tool in exchange agreements, like what happened with Abu Hafs, who was repatriated to Mauritania from Iran (The Long War Journal).
