Pakistani Man on Trial for Spying on Behalf of Iran

A 31 year-old Pakistani man identified only as Syed Mustufa H. was arrested at the beginning of the year in Germany. His charge – gathering information for possible Jewish assassination targets for Iran’s Quds Force.

His trial started last week in the German capital but he remained silent throughout. His lawyer explained that he did not speak “out of fear”. The situation does not look good for Syed because the evidence is compelling and the charges of scoping out targets for Iran and carrying out espionage on its behalf against France and Germany is altogether very serious.


Iranian Citizenship Will Be Granted to Mercenaries Fighting for Assad in Syria

The Head of the Foundation of Martyrs and Veterans Affairs announced that the Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of Iran, ordered the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) to grant Iranian citizenship to the mercenaries fighting in Syria.

Iran Needs to Be Expelled From Syria in Order for the Middle East to Start Becoming More Secure

Israel’s objection about a solution for Syria that would benefit Iran has been noted. It believes that if the war in Syria ends and Iran is still present, it will be a security risk for Israel. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu emphasised that Israel is not objecting to a solution being made in Syria – rather it is objecting to the presence of Iran and its proxies. 

It is not just at Israel that is at risk – other countries are at risk too, such as Turkey, Iraq, Jordan and the Gulf.

Iran is continuing with its habit of provoking the United States. Recently, Iranian vessels approached a US Navy ship in international waters causing the US to fire warning shots. 

Iran is testing the United States and the resolve of its President. 

Trump and numerous officials in his administration have spoken again Iran and its provocations and aggression and have vowed to ensure this changes. The US has declared itself committed to making sure Iran faces consequences if, or when, it violates the terms of the nuclear deal or United Nations sanctions.


Iran: Civilian Flights Used to Transport War Equipment

It has been revealed that the Islamic Republic of Iran is using civilian planes to send military personnel and ammunition to Syria and Yemen. 

An Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) official told Armed News that troops are sent to the war zones on civilian flights where they are hidden at the back of the plane. They leave via a separate door at the back away from the other passengers on the flight. 

These flights also bring home the dead or injured military personnel.
