The United States has now imposed sanctions on an Iran-based militant leader, who was trying to overthrow the US-backed government of Bahrain.

The US State Department said in a statement that Qassim Abdullah Ali Ahmed (also known as Qassim al-Muamen), the leader of the Bahraini al-Ashtar Brigades militant group, recruited terrorists in Bahrain and provided funding, weapons and explosives to the members of the al-Ashtar Brigades, so that they could carry out attacks against the Bahraini government. The State Department also said that al-Muamen had facilitated the training of weapons and explosives for al-Ashtar Brigades members.

Recently, news reports have begun circulating about the proposed establishment of a NATO-style security and military strategic alliance to confront Iranian expansion in the Middle East.

The alliance, said to be between the US, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, Egypt and Jordan, will likely be announced by mid-October and will form part of the growing international pressure on Iran.

One of the most important parts of the alliance will be preventing Iran from escalating military, as well as forming an air defence shield to protect the countries involved against a ballistic missile attack from Iran. Both of these goals mean extra pressure on Iran, with less likelihood for a regional conflict that could potentially kill hundreds of thousands. It would also help to stop the Iranian Regime’s Revolutionary Guards from closing the Strait of Hormuz, as they have previously threatened to do, in response to US sanctions on Iranian oil.
