The Iranian TV has broadcasted a terrible video, showing a young boy arrived in Syria to fight the jihad. In the video, it is possible to see the child saying that he is from Mazandaran Province – South of Iran – and that he is 13 years old. The young boy also added that he decided to join the jihad in Syria inspired by General Qassem Soleimani, head of the Iranian Qods Force.

Lebanese pro-Hezbollah newspaper al-Akhbar, writes that Samir Geagea is behind the resignation of Saad Hariri. In September 28, Geagea visited Saudi Arabia and met with King Salman. In that meeting, Salman expressed his commitment to confront Iran and Hezbollah, helping also Saad Hariri and the financial crisis of Lebanon. Geagea answered that Hariri was not the right person to confront Iran, because he had an agreement with President of Lebanon Aoun, and also meets once a week the political advisor of Hassan Nasrallah, Hussein Khalil. After the words of Geagea, Saudis started to think about Bahaa Hariri – elder brother of Saad – as the Sunni figure which could lead the confrontation.
Leaving Saudi Arabia, Samir Geagea went in Australia, where he started to attack directly Saad Hariri, accusing his Government to push for a “normalization of the relations with Syrian regime”. When, in October 2017, the Lebanese Government decided to appoint Saad Zakhia as new Ambassador of Lebanon in Syria, the Ministers of Lebanese Force declared their reservation to the Government’s decision.
In the plan to promote the figure of Bahaa Hariri, also former Lebanese Minister of Justice Ashraf Rifi, played a role: he met Bahaa Hariri in Monaco, passing through Milan, to dispel suspicions. Rifi returned in Beirut on Saturday – passing always through Milan – the same day of Hariri’s resignation. The next day, Bahaa Hariri travelled from Monaco to Riyadh. Yesterday, broking the silence, Bahaa Hariri spoke with the Associated Press (from Monaco), supporting the resignation of his brother, praising Saudi Arabia and attacking Hezbollah.
In order to exploit the business opportunity with Qatar and the diplomatic crisis in the Gulf, the Iranian traders have exported to Doha damaged goods and rotten food. As admitted also by the Director of the Shiraz airport, Tehran was forced to stop the shipping to Qatar, because the fruit and vegetables destined to the Arab country contained mud and were put in unhealthy cardboard boxes. Worse: the Qatari Ministry of Health denounced that the fruits imported from Iran have chemical origin, and were sent to Doha by cargos without any supervision. The result was that the Qatari people have received toxin food from Iran!

An article published on Tasnim News – Iranian press agency with strong ties with the IRGC – spoke about the visit of the Hamas delegation in Tehran. Speaking about the agreement between Hamas and Fatah, signed recently in Cairo, the author underlined that the Islamic Republic welcomes the Palestinian national reconciliation, “but this reconciliation should not be an excuse for retaliation against Palestinian national resistance factions”. After criticizing the request of Israel to Hamas to disarm and after attacking the statement of Abu Mazen about the risk of the formation of another Hezbollah in Gaza, the author wrote: “Palestinian factions should take the advantage of the national reconciliation to strengthen the Palestinian people’s position vis-à-vis Israel, and refrain in securing the interests of the Zionist entity and some Arab reactionary regimes”.
In few words, Iran accepts the Palestinian national reconciliation agreement, provided that the Palestinian factions will continue the armed struggle and will not recognize Israel.
A delegation of Hamas visited Iran, led by Saleh al-Arouri. In Tehran, they met also with Ali Shamkhani, Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran.

Shamkhani also added that the “ongoing confrontation against the Zionist entity”, must not change and expressed his regret for the “Takfir” groups active in the region. For his part, Arouri underlined that he arrived in Iran to “thank the Islamic Republic for its support to Palestine”, and praised the figure of Imam Hussein, who represent all the oppressed people.

The US think tank Foundation for Defense Democracy (FDD), has published a report about who finances the Lebanese terrorist organization Hezbollah. The firs financer, as well known, is Iran, which gives around $ 800 million every year. Another financer is Venezuela, who facilitates the drug trafficking of Hezbollah, supported also by Shia communities in America Latina. But, between who gave money to the Party of God, there is also Qatar, who gave to Hezbollah $ 300 million in 2009. FDD denounces that Hezbollah used the Lebanese bank system for its money laundering, especially to “clean” the money received from the drug trafficking.
