Facebook recently announced the removal of a significant number of pages, groups, and accounts engaged in what they called "coordinated inauthentic behavior.” Most of the activity seemed to come from fake accounts linked to Iran, whose propaganda was related to Syria, Yemen, and Palestine. According to Facebook, networks linked to Iran were responsible for "513 pages, groups, and accounts," operating in "Egypt, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Kashmir, Kazakhstan [and] broadly across the Middle East and North Africa.”

Facebook’s head of cybersecurity said in a blog post on Twitter, “the pages routinely amplified Iranian state narratives, targeting Israel, the United States, and Saudi Arabia, especially for their roles in the Middle East, and focusing on the Yemen and Palestine conflicts... The pages often shared articles from websites which reproduced, verbatim, content from Iranian state or state-allied outlets, such as Press TV."

Iran has been under great pressure from the US ever since Donald Trump became president, but the pressure increased dramatically after the US pulled out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly known as the nuclear deal, last May and reinstated sanctions over the following six months. However, that was not the only problem faced by the Regime.

Iran has drawn severe and warranted criticism from the other countries of the Middle East who rightly fear that the Regime is trying to turn the region into a Mini-Persian Empire with a land bridge stretching from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean through Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Lebanon. This has caused Saudi Arabia and Yemen to seek out the US’s help in countering the Regime.

Iran regime’s leader, Ali Khamenei, recently discussed his concerns about the “enemy”. He believes that this “enemy” will attempt to deliver a severe blow to his government, and possible plots to overthrow the regime in 2019. Senior regime insiders have also expressed similar concerns, especially in Friday prayer sessions. Friday prayer imams are considered Khamenei’s representatives and have actual command over local affairs.

Last Friday, this became evident at the first Friday prayer session of the new Iranian calendar year after Nowruz. The Friday prayer imam of Urmia, Ali Akbar Ghoreishi, of northwest Iran, used the term “50 incidents” to describe measures that have sought to overthrow the regime during the past 40 years.
