The new Minister of Defense proposed by President Rouhani, Brigadier General Amir Hatami, expressed support for terrorism during his speech in front of the members of the Parliament. Speaking about the new sanctions passed by US against Iran, Hatami said that he will give “unquestionably support to the resistance front, to the Qods Force and to Major General Soleimani”. Practically, this will mean that Tehran will continue not only to finance the Qods Force’s activities abroad – which have the goal to spread the Khomeini’s ideology – but also many terrorist organizations, like Hezbollah, Hamas, the Islamic Jihad, the Popular Front for Liberation of Palestine and even al-Qaeda and the Taliban!

US think tank: “Iranian missile attack in Syria was a failure”

On June 18, the Iranian regime announced of having fired six missiles Zolfawar, against Isis targets in Syria, in the Deir al-Zour Province. In particular, the targets were two telecommunications towers and their associated buildings. As well known, the attack was a reaction to the two terrorists attacks of Isis in Tehran, one against the Parliament and the second against the Shrine of the Imam Khomeini. After the attack, the Pasdaran exulted and described the action as the first “clear message” to the takfiri terrorists and their regional supporters (meaning Saudi Arabia).
But now, it seems that the Iranian attacks in Syria were a complete failure. The US think tank Washington Institute, published an article claiming that the Iranian missiles did not hit the targets, but landed elsewhere. Seven Iranian missiles landed in the Iraq desert, while other three missed completely the objectives. Only one or two of the missiles launched by the Pasdaran, arrived close to their targets.
If confirmed, this failure demonstrates that the Iranian missiles have a serious problem of quality control and reliability. The author of the article, Farzin Nadimi, also underline that Tehran could try to obtain foreign technology, in order to remedy the failure.

Recently the Iranian media published videos of Qassem Soleimani, head of the Qods Force, while visiting and praying in the border between Iraq and Syria. During this travel, Soleimani has chosen to be escorted by the members of the Fatemyoun Division, the militia created by the Pasdaran and composed by Afghan fighters, belonging to the Hazara ethnic group.
Why? The website al-Quds al-Arabi, a pan-Arab daily newspaper printed in London, writes that the decision to be escorted by the Afghans, was taken by Soleimani in order to send a message to Saudi Arabia and to the Prime Minister of Iraq al-Abadi, who is visiting Riyadh today: he wanted to said that Iran is an empire, capable to reach an influence which goes from Lebanon to Afghanistan, passing also through the Gulf (the article speaks about the case of Bahrain).

Ex Iraqi Defense Minister al-Khuzaei, reveals how Iran is meddling in Iraq

Source: al-Arabiya

In a long interview with Al-Arabiya, the former Minister of Defense of Iraq Hazim al-Shaalan al-Khuzaei – who was also Governor of Al-Qādisiyyah Province in 2003 – reveals how Iranian regime started his meddling in the Iraqi internal affairs and how is also exploiting today the Iraqi territory, to achieve its geopolitical goals. Al-Khuzaei said that, the attempt of Iran to meddling in the Iraqi affairs, started long time ago.

One of the key man in this project was the Iraqi Shia cleric Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr, executed by Saddam Hussein in 1980. For al-Khuzaei, al-Sadr was killed by Saddam after a decision of Iran. Al-Sadr, in a radio interview with Tehran, had expressed his will to leave Iraq, to save the life of his son, who was sick. In that interview, the interviewer reacted saying that they (the Iranians) wanted him to remain there, in order to bring the Islamic revolution also in Iraq. Al-Kuzaei, thinks that this was the prove that Iran has sold al-Sadr to Saddam, in the moment in which it was not useful.

After the fall of the Saddam’s regime, Iran has started to sent thousands of Afghan in Iraq. Here, they receive the military training, before going to fight in Syria for Bashar al Assad. Today many of these Afghans, are living in Iraqi using documents of dead Iraqis.

Hazim al-Shaalan al-Khuzaei (who is a Shiite) told that in 2003, when he was Governor of Al-Qādisiyyah, a person came to him and said that the Iranians have requested the permission to bring 500 people in Najaf, to collect the rubbish. Between them there was also Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who became after the Mayor of Tehran. Using the excuse of the cleaning of the holy city, these Iranian men – who were Basij – have distributed book in order to attract young people to the Iranian version of the Shia Islam.

Speaking about the actuality, Hazim al-Shaalan al-Khuzaei  said tha Iran is using Iraq to have a direct connection with Syria and with the Mediterranean sea. Bashar al-Assad, unlike is father, is completely in the hands of the Iranian regime. The former Iraqi Defense Minister also revealed that, since 2005, almost all the weapons and material that Iran sent for Hezbollah, have passed through Iraq. He also added that, in his opinion, Iran is responsible for the rise of al-Qaeda (and after Isis) in Iraq, because it has given its territory to the terrorists of Osama Bin Laden, in order to use them in Iraq.  

At the end of the interview, al-Khuzaei accused Iran of printing false Dinar, and to spread them in Iraq.
