Iran's Involvement and Motives in Syria

18 July 2017

Iran has been involved in the Syria civil war since it started. Its militias have backed and propped up Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad to no end and at the minute their combined forces are subduing towns and cities from Eastern Aleppo to southern ar-Raqqah. Russian battleships in the Mediterranean, as well as jets, are working to subjugate them with shells. 

The brave Syrian opposition is battling away through tough circumstances even after it was assailed by Iran and its foreign militias. The opposition has been unable to receive much needed aid and supplies because the Jordanian and Turkish passages have remained closed.

Iran: Alarming Number of Executions This Month

14 July 2017

The Iranian opposition, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), has reported that there have already been a large number of executions this month alone in Iran. 

Since the beginning of July there have been a minimum of 57 executions carried out in the country in a growing trend of mass executions. Some of the executions were carried out in public. This is clearly an attempt made by the weak regime to try to counter the overwhelming public discontent. It is also trying to use the threat of execution as a deterrent against further demonstrations and protests.
