Credit: @IranianForum
—78% have favorable viewpoints of #Iran’s regime President Ebrahim Raisi, dubbed the “Butcher of Tehran.”

—76% are certain Raisi will live up to his promises.

—72% are very/somewhat satisfied of the Iran’s June 2021 elections outcome.
The poll also claims the majority of Iranians back the regime’s nuclear/missile programs, support resistance in the face of America’s bullying in nuclear negotiations, and also support Hezbollah (terrorism).

Huge blast heard in central #Beirut.
#Iran puts its proxies under tremendous pressure in #Iraq and #Lebanon to survive, as they face an uncertain future after losing the elections in Iraq and major people rejection in Beirut.
Why #Hezbollah wants to remove the #Beirut blast Judge. It's ironic to see such acts from #Iranian proxies which confirm their infiltration into the internal affairs of #Lebanon and wider region countries.

Based on the complications and the Turkish officials high tone statements, the main question will be what are #Turkey's options in responding to what happened in southern Mari'? 1/6
#Russia #USA #Syria #Biden #Erdogan #Putin #Iran Image
The first option, #Turkey may move towards exploiting what happened to carry out a media attack on the #YPG militia preparing for a military operation in another area less sensitive to #Russia (Ein al-Arab - Kobane city for example).2/6 Image
This operation more likely will be coordinated with #Moscow in order to push the Kurdish militias in eastern #Syria to get closer to the #Assad regime and #Russia, as they are able to protect them from #Turkey.3/6 Image

Interesting coincidence that #US @DeputySecState Wendy Sherman is in #Pakistan two days after her #Iran counterpart Deputy FM Ali Bagheri was here. DepSecState @wendyrsherman played a key role in the original #JCPOA negotiations. /1 ImageImage
#Iran Deputy FM visit in the same week is coincidental. @DeputySecState Wendy Sherman's visit is focused on #Afghanistan, and the "important and longstanding #US-#Pakistan relationship," in her words. Here's @StateDeptSpox statement on the meeting with NSA @YusufMoeed. /2 Image
DepSecState Sherman's visit comes at the intersection of several issues: topping the list is #Afghanistan, but also jitters in #India at the renewed #USPakistan engagement, and the regional security situation [#Gulf+South Asia+#China]. /3

🇮🇷#Iran - #Terrorism - Criminal Outsourcing - An unprecedented operation involving 15 international #intelligence agencies has exposed an #Iranian terror infrastructure that was planning a series of assassinations against #Israeli and #Western targets around the world. 1/22
It started in June, when #Colombia's Dirección Nacional de Inteligencia (#DNI) issued an imminent security alert after determining two Israeli businessmen were the targets of an #assassination attempt planned and financed by a high-ranking Iranian #Quds Force officer. 2
That officer, Rahmat Asadi, is regarded by Western intelligence organizations as a dangerous #terrorist.
The businessmen and their families had to quickly leave Bogotá under rigorous security measures. 3

#Iran opposition coalition @NCRIUS Rep. Office will hold a press conference tomorrow to “unveil new details of Iran’s destabilizing drone program.”

New info: production sites, program’s complete cycle and other previously undisclosed details
For those arguing that #Iran's regime should be provided sanctions relief, this is how any new money going into Iran will be used: developing new armed/suicide drones for terrorist proxies such as Hamas, Hezbollah, the Houthis in Yemen & Iraq militias.
The $152 billion in credit/cash that Obama allowed #Iran to access funded terrorists & nuclear/ballistic missile programs.

Not a dime was spent on the people.

New money into Iran will fuel the regime's malign measures, incl. developing suicide drones.

Tensions are flaring up between #Iran & #Azerbaijan? What’s behind it?

The core of the geopolitical dispute is over a stretch of Armenian land called Zangezur. It’s incredibly strategic for Iran & the region.

A thread on these brewing tensions:
2) Armenia’s Zangezur region disconnects Azerbaijan from Nakhchivan & Turkey.

Zangezur is also Iran’s only border with Armenia & is a route to Europe for Iran that is not dependent on Azerbaijan & Turkey.

Iran doesn’t want Zangezur to fall under Azerbaijani/Turkish control.
3) Last Friday, Iran’s Regular Army started a military maneuver near its borders with Azerbaijan & Armenia.

This happened after Azerbaijani forces arrested 2 Iranian truck drivers who were taking goods to Armenia via a highway that passes through Zangezur.

The Truth - Israeli PM @naftalibennett in a brief & ambiguous statement: The #Mossad carried out a complex & extensive op last month aimed at finding information on the whereabouts of the missing pilot, Ron Arad. Earlier TelAviv accused #Iran of targeting Israelis in Cyprus. 1/4
🚨Acc. to exclusive intelligence recieved, @naftalibennett was referring to an op carried out by the Mossad in #Syria during which a unit affiliated with the Mossad kidnapped an #Iranian general & took him to an African country, interrogated & later released him. 2/4
It seems that the Iranians followed the op after it happened, & found out by whom & where it was handled? So, @naftalibennett was referring to this particular operation,. The narrative about Fakhrizadeh's revenge, is bogus & aims to distract public attention from the truth! 3/4
