Below four videos about the huge protest held in Tehran, few days ago: from all Iran arrived in the capital thousands of people, in order to protest against the corruption of the financial institutions, especially the one connected to IRGC and Hezbollah. People chanted slogans against the regime, against the Central Bank, against Rouhani and also against the Iranian presence in Syria.
Speaking in the annual event in the occasion of the preparation of the Ashura, the Secretary of Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah, revealed that he was the person who convinced the Iranian Supreme Leader, to intervene in Syria. It seems that, meeting Khamenei in Tehran, Nasrallah warned him that the end of the Assad’s regime, will mean not only the fight in Hermel, Baalbek, Dahiya, Ghazieh and Bekaa, but also inside Iran, in particular in areas like Kerman, Khuzestan and Tehran.
The words of Nasrallah remind what was said by IRGC Vice Commander, Hossein Salami, few months ago. Speaking in a TV interview – see the video in Farsi on the top – Salami said that Iran decided to act in Syria, in order to defend its foothold in the Mediterranean region. Because, losing Syria, will mean losing the chain which connects the front between Iran, Syria, Lebanon and Palestine.
As well known, the Iranian regime denies the permission to the women to enter in the stadium. The same prohibition was applied during the last match between Iran and Syria in Tehran. The regime allowed the Syrian female supporters to enter in the stadium, forcing them to wear the veil (despite one of them was pictured inside the stadium without the veil). On the contrary, the regime has denied the entering to the Iranian female supporters. But, the security, told to the Iranian female supporters that they would be allowed to enter in the stadium – with the veil – if they would carry the flag of Syria and a picture of Bashar al Assad. Some of the Iranian female supporters accepted in order to overcome the law, while others have rejected the proposal, protesting also via social networks against, what they called, a “betrayal of Iran”.
In this video, it is possible to listen IRGC Brig. Gen. Hamid Abazari, speaking about the foreign fighters that Iran sent to Syria, to fight for the Assad’s regime. He admits that, for every 10 fighters sent in Syria, at least “2 or 3 of them were killed or injured”. This means that at almost 30% of the Shiite jihadists sent to Syria, did not return back home…
His name was Seyed Mostafa Hosseini, he was a member of the IRGC Fatemiyoun Division – the one composed by “Afghan volunteers” – and he was only 15 years old when he was killed in Syria, while fighting for Bashar al Assad. Hossein was buried in the Martyrs Cemetery of Isfahan. As well known, the UN Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the involvement of children in armed conflict, forbids the involvement of children in hostilities and conscription into armed forces. Iran has signed the optional Protocol in 2010. But, as demonstrated today and in other occasion, Iran violated this Protocol many times, using minors for military proposes. It is time for the United Nation to take a clear position, and to condemn the Iranian regime for these violations!
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).

Arabi21 published an article, speaking about the possibility that – considering the tensions between Iran-Turkey-Qatar and the Sunni countries by Saudi Arabia – the GCC’s States are ready to support the independence of the Kurdistan. The campaign in favor of the independence of the Kurdistan, was launched by a Saudi journalist, named Sattam. In his Twitter account, he invited the Muslim people to support the independence of the “descendants of Salahuddin” and “their dream to establish an independent State”. Arabi21 also report that the Qatari’s intelligence, have documents which proved that the Gulf States are supporting two Kurdish parties: the PKK – inserted in the terrorist list of Turkey – and the PYD, Syrian branch of the PKK. These information was provided to Qatar by Syrian Turkmen fighters from Syria, who are supported by Ankara.
In a joint declaration, 156 members of the European Parliament declared that the Iranian election are a fraud, because they are nor free nor equal. They remember that under the Government of Rouhani, more than 3000 prisoners were hanged. In the document, sent also to Mrs. Mogherini, the EU MPs condemned the Iranian role in the Syrian conflict and asked to insert the Pasdaran in the list of the terrorist organizations. Speaking about human rights, the EU MPs asked to establish a UN special commission to inquiry the massacre of 30,000 opponents in 1988, denouncing the complicity in that massacre of the actual Minister of Justice Mostafa Pourmohammadi, and the Presidential candidate Ebrahim Raisi. At the end of the letter, the European MPs invited EU to condition the development of the relations with Iran, to the respect of the human rights by the Tehran’s regime.
