IAEA DG Rafael Grossi said #Iran’s regime had failed to reduce concerns about violations of its nonproliferation safeguards agreement, will eventually cross the uranium enrichment threshold. #IAEA’s Board of Governors is to decide on decades of denial, deception & duplicity.
The IAEA report is perhaps the most damning since its Nov 2011 report, which highlights clear activities related to the Possible Military Dimensions (PMD) of Iran's nuclear program, i.e., uranium particles of anthropogenic origin at three undeclared locations in Iran. 2/
These 3 locations are, Turquzabad (2019), Varamin (2020) and ‘Marivan’ (2020). Despite "numerous opportunities, in different formats," IAEA report states, "Iran has not provided explanations that are technically credible in relation to the Agency’s findings at those locations."3/

🧵THREAD🧵:Tomorrow @USEnvoyIran will testify before @SenateForeign. NUFDI has prepared ten questions on behalf of the Iranian-American community and shared them with Senate staffers.

Here are our ten questions for @Rob_Malley:
1. Why do you think Iranian-Americans and human rights activists were opposed to your appointment from the very beginning?
2. In your more than one year in office, why have you refused to meet with human rights advocates and pro-democracy members of the Iranian-American community?

#BREAKING: Happened an hour ago! Tens of protesters are killed or wounded after #Basij paramilitary forces of #IRGC opened fire at them in #Hafshejan, a city in Shahrekord County, Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Province of #Iran.
This is how it was started two hours ago. A group of people in the city of #Hafshejan started protesting against #Iranian Islamic Regime over the increase of prices of goods. Then #Basij paramilitary forces riding their bikes attacked the protesters.
A few minutes later, the Special Forces of Police arrived and began suppressing protesters. You can see them on their pick-up trucks during their arrival at the city center. Protesters can be heard chanting "Death to Raisi" (president of the Iranian regime).

This is #Iran's regime continuing its policy of taking dual citizens hostage and "using" them when necessary.

As long as the West continues its #appeasement vis-à-vis Tehran, innocent people will be abducted, jailed, tortured, and even executed.
"Jalali, a disaster medicine doctor and researcher, was arrested in 2016 on an academic visit to Iran and sentenced to death on charges of espionage for Israel's Mossad."
The #IRGC "have arrested dozens of dual nationals in recent years, mostly on espionage charges. Activists have accused #Iran of using them as bargaining chips... Iran has exchanged several jailed foreigners & dual nationals with Iranians detained abroad."…

Two arrested “fake Homeland Security agents” were able to compromise the US Secret Service

-Both had visas to #Iran

-Biden admin refuses to confirm they have links to Iran’s #IRGC & intel, despite plausible evidence

-They “went unnoticed” for at least two years
Arian Taherzadeh, 40, and Haider Ali, 35, began their plot in Feb 2020.

Reminder: #Iran’s former #IRGC Quds Force chief Qassem Soleimani was killed in January 2020.

The two provided many lavish gifts, including rent-free $40,000/year apartments to U.S. Secret Service agents.
The two lived for a “year-and-a-half living in a luxury apartment building allegedly posing as federal agents” and “hanging out with residents and cozying up to people working for government – including at least four Secret Service agents.”

As the world focuses on Russia and Ukraine, the New Terror Wave against the U.S. is looming.

#IRGC and #MOIS with their #terrorist proxy groups[Global Terrorism Network] are planing , around the clock. #Iran's regime has been steadily expanding its global network of terror.
#Terrorism is indispensable to the Iranian regime’s foreign policy and diplomacy and for more than 43 years, this #mullah's regime is using this as the main tool against its opponents abroad, as well as against other countries for blackmailing.
#Iran #IRGCIsTerrorist
Iran’s regional strategy is sophisticated, intricate, and nimble.
Whereas #Iran’s primary method of operations in the region is to support #Terrorism.

analyzing Iran’s efforts as supporting terrorism, is necessary to understand the real face of #mullah's regime. @ODNIgov

1.🧵Reducing Pressure on Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Raises Risks for America

by Elliott Abrams Behnam Ben Taleblu
2. Deal or no deal with Iran, retaining and enforcing America’s most significant counterterrorism authority against the long arm of the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism remains in the national security interest of the United States.
3. The negotiations with Iran over a nuclear deal are stalled over one main issue: Tehran is insisting that its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) be removed from the Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) list maintained by the U.S. State Department and that terrorism ...

Questions about the #Negev_Summit:
1. As a supporter of #AbrahamAccords, I would have loved nothing better for the Negev Summit to have been a meaningful opportunity for a constructive & frank exchange of ideas building on the foundation between participants.
2. Alas, once again, it appears to be nothing more than another hastily organized photo op. I don't see clear follow-ups that would indicate a substantive basis of support to the points raised to the summit.
3. #Morocco's FM Bourita, for instance, once again went around claiming credit for #Israel's allegedly growing support on the Kingdom's sovereignty over Sahara. But where's #Israel's consulate in #Dakhla? And why is Govrin still a liaison and not a full Ambassador to #Morocco?

1) Removing Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps (#IRGC) from the U.S "Foreign Terrorist Organisations" (FTO) blacklist at the conclusion of the #ViennaTalks would be a very positive step.
2) Designating the IRGC as a FTO was a blatant blunder by the Trump administration with potentially serious long-term ramifications for the international legal regime governing the laws of war.
3) This unprecedented designation was not legally sound even according to US domestic law; And the introduction of this precedent-setting practice into the international order risks "politicizing" - hence undermining - even further the already fragile IHL legal regime.

First photos I’ve seen of the damage caused by the missile attack on Mossad base in Erbil according to #Iran’s #IRGC
Daddy Day Care - the staged edition, photos are off, but right now I’ve still go no sat imagery to look at, blast damage is heavy, probably means it’s in the vicinity of the impact, but as to were, unclear.
Building has another one in the vicinity. There are a few on the compound but none that I can easily see with a fence in the middle? Curious what building this is. Also possible the fence has gone in since sat imagery on Google was taken which im using for reference.

#BREAKING: Unable to attack #Israel in retaliation of the death of two #IRGC Quds Force officers in #Damascus on Monday, Islamic Revolutionary Guard of Corps of #Iran just carried-out a combined drone/ballistic missile strike at #US Army base in #Erbil Intl airport in #Iraq!
Total six Fateh-110 ballistic missiles launched from #Iran's #Kermanshah province hit the #USArmy base in #Erbil International Airport in North of #Iraq. Surveillance drones of #IRGC Aerospace Force flew over the base before missiles hit it.
It is unconfirmed but, the pro-#IRGC sources claim that a #USAF's E-11A Battlefield Airborne Communications Node (BACN) aircraft was one of the targets. It is not clear if it is destroyed or not. The moment ballistic missiles hit military section of #Erbil airport.

As I predicted two days ago, the Russian invasion of #Ukraine would directly affect the course of the negotiations in #Vienna on #Iran's nuclear program, which was declared frozen today.
To understand why, you can read the thread:👇
Signing the agreement would have meant a stab in the back for #Russia by opening the way for Iranian oil and gas to be pumped into the global market, which would turn the most dangerous Russian weapon against the West less severe.
#Iran #USA #EU #UK #NATO
A rejection of the agreement would create to the West anger and disappointment with all the economic and security concessions made by #France, #Germany and the #US, which in one way or another caused tension in western relations with #SaudiArabia and the #UAE.

#Iran: One doesn't usually cover state groups, but the #IRGC released video of winter training with snowmobiles, just like their friends in Hezbollah.

Interesting kit seen; includes S-5.56 ARs, Upgraded RPD, recent/uncommon Ashtar sniper rifle & snowmobile-mounted PKM-T80 MG.
Also worth a note here that they can be seen with both generations of Rayan Roshd RU03 red dot optics and assorted lights/lasers/etc, which are usually of Chinese/Iranian (rebranded) origin.

Quite curious stuff.
As per @Fath_ol_Mobin, I will note some of the other kit; HYTERA PD-782i for comms, locally modified of Chinese imported LBT-6049A plate carriers, etc.

Generally to be expected. Note no G3, as the more "Elite" forces use 5.56 platforms much more widely than others in #Iran.

#Iran 🇮🇷: #IRGC "#Saberin Special Forces" relesed a video of their training during snowy terrains after the #Hezbollah's video.

The unit seems to be armed with Iranian Sayyad 5.56 rifles (M16 copies), PKM-T80 machine guns, Sa'aban-1 LMG (modified RPK) and "Ashtara" sniper rifle.
As usual, the unit seems to be using Iranian weapons mostly.
The video is very similar to the video released by the Radwan Unit in #Lebanon.
The link of the thread about the #Radwan Unit's video can be found below.

POLITICO: Sen Chuck Grassley's ex-staffers wrote to DOJ regarding its letter of determination that Qatar-based Al Jazeera’s digital news outlet AJ+ is required to register as a foreign agent.…
DOJ left unanswered three follow-up letters regarding this issue. Despite the initial letter of determination, no action has been taken to enforce AJ+ requirement to be designated under FARA. So far, Al Jazeera manages to get away with not following the #Trump admin's findings.
It appears that the #Biden staffers have "pocket vetoed" the issue of AJ+, despite findings comparing it to Chinese, Russian, and other propaganda outlets that had been forced to comply with the respective recommendations. #Biden's comments to #Qatar's Emim Tamim show why.
