#Iran escalating tension policy persists in the region!
The Islamic Republic, in the wake of its abnormal behavior, has deployed heavy_weapons to three Arab states in the #Middle_East ❗️The regime continues its malicious behavior in the neighboring countries.
A few months ago, a journalist who fled #Iran informed us: The Islamic Republic and in particular the #Revolutionary_Guards had sent heavy weaponries to several Arab countries to counter, what they call ‘American Threats’, & #US forces in the event of a possible Iran/US conflict
Months ago, Bahraini Foreign Minister, Khalid bin Ahmed al-Khalifa confirmed the revelation, stating: “#Iran has secretly transferred weapons and explosives to #Bahrain. These weapons were enough to destroy half of the capital city #Manama❗️

It is now confirmed: Olena Malakhova, director of #SkyAviaTrans which played key role in illegal weapon smuggling from #Turkey to #Libya is among victims of Flight #PS752 shot-down! She was in #Iran to discuss about one of her businessjets in use as an Air Taxi in #Tehran.
On 6 August 2019, I revealed that her Il-76TD cargo airplane with UR-COZ civil register was bombed & destroyed by #Libya National Air Force in #Misrata air base. That night, UR-COZ had smuggled weapons from Akinci (Mürted) Air Base in #Ankara, #Turkey.
#Ukraine's state media falsely labeled me as #Russia's propagandist & claimed that I spread #FakeNews as part of an anti-Ukrainian campaign prior visit of #Zelensky & #Erdogan in #Turkey. But thanks to Satellite images, it was proved that I was right about #SkyAviaTrans Il-76TD

#Iran's leader has started his speech in Tehran Friday prayers, leading the prayers for the first time after 8 years.
#Iran's leader says that two days of "funeral ceremony of #QasemSoleimani" & "firing missiles at US base" #AinAlAsad are "days of God" & "turning points" in history.
#Iran's leader: What happened that the Zionist media empire in all the world wanted to blame #QasemSoleimani for terrorism [after he was assassinated]? US president & his Secretary of State also did this.

New Dimensions of Ukrainian Airplane Incident in #Tehran; #US Footprint Brighter than Ever! + Video…
According to available information, few after #Iran’s missile attacks on #US terrorist forces in #Iraq, the US reconnaissance aircraft “Rivet Joint”, started the simulation of cruise missiles firing to some targets in center of Iran.
In fact, the Americans have acted against #Iran’s defense system to mislead it; but it’s not the all of story!
What indicates the depth of disaster and #US evil, is the changing the identification of a passenger aircraft to a cruise missile!

#Iran admits downing a civilian jetliner #PS752 after calling the US and others claim as 'psychological warfare'.

Ops Martyr #Soliemani has been a sobering wakeup call for #Tehran.

11 revenge scenarios yet to be realised while some 200 Iranians already dead, stampede included.
Religious fanatics - in #India and #Iran both - failed to act professionally in brief, offensive battles.

Both #Delhi and #Tehran made catastrophic decisions.

After initial denial, both had to admit failure.

The world isn't safe with #RSS, #Shiite extremists in power.

#Iran can't get away by scapegoating a low-ranking official, downing an enemy plane is never a tactical decision. An officer of the level of major general or brigadier would have approved and directed. Allowing field commanders to act on their own proves lack of professionalism.

How Dangerous is the Situation Between the U.S. and #Iran?

I joined @vali_nasr and @MicheleDDunne for a debate over Trump's decision to kill #IRGC-QF Cmdr Qasem #Soleimani, the fallout, and what will likely come next. Full episode video at the link:
@vali_nasr @MicheleDDunne The idea that the US lacked justification for taking out #Soleimani is bonkers. It's not even a matter of how imminent an attack is; it's all the American blood already on his hands. I explain 👇
#Iran #Iraq
@vali_nasr @MicheleDDunne As I explain, "we're at a point right now where most mainstream media in the US and the talking points among leading Democrats - including presidential candidates - are more pro-Iranian regime than the Iranian people are." #Iran #Iraq #Soleimani 👇

It was Iran, the Syrian Army, Hezbollah and Shi'ite militias who protected and helped the various Christian Greek Orthodox Churches in Syria and Iran while it was Western "Christians" who armed the jihadists who killed them.

If you cannot accept this fact, you're anti-Christian.
original tweet was supposed to say "Greek Orthodox Churches in Syria and Iraq," not Iran.
Putin and Assad yesterday visited the 2nd Century Mariamite Cathedral of Damascus of the Greek Orthodox Church of Antioch, one of the oldest churches in the world. They were accompanied by the Patriarch of Antioch, John X.

@NikosDendias, when will you finally visit #Syria?

A brief #thread on domestic implications of Qassem #Soleimani's assassination by the #US.

Key point: While the person #Soleimani is irreplacable, what he embodied is far too institutionalized to end, and will be continued by state entities and actors in #Iran (and beyond).
1) As already established by many, #Soleimani enjoyed popularity far beyond the 50% mark according to various surveys & polls conducted inside & outside of #Iran. You can question accuracy of exact numbers, but not dismiss trend/tendency showing clear majority approval rate.
2) Scenes of funeral ceremonies/gatherings in #Iran underline this, as seen for instance in

- Ahwaz:
- Isfahan:

Observers will surely dismiss these as state-sanctioned. While they are, the turn-out is very real.

When the Air Force (Helicopters) of a country, #Iraq, carry the coffins of those assassinated by a guest country, #US. Do you @realDonaldTrump believe your troop will be safe in Iraq after your violation of the agreement with the Iraqi government?

Watch Brian Katulis of the Center for @amprog meltdown when I point out that he is parroting the #echochamber's talking points & tweets on @realDonaldTrump's decapitation strike on #Iran's #Soleimani.
@amprog @realDonaldTrump According to Mr. Katulis, Trump's maximum pressure on #Iran only gave us maximum resistance. Our allies don't trust us and Trump has no plan because he receives different opinions for advice. Incidentally, hearing the same advice repeatedly is part of what an #echochamber does.
@amprog @realDonaldTrump If we back up to the beginning, you hear the same #echochamber talking points that Team Obama used. It shouldn't be surprising. He works at @amprog, which is headed by @neeratanden. They dislike what Trump would call, #winning 👇…

Qassem Soleimani was killed in an air strike by the #US in #Baghdad. Equivalent to Jiang Zemin in #China, Soleimani was a dominant figure in the military, politics and oil industry of #Iran. Most of his family reside in #HongKong, #Shanghai and #Beijing.
#China’s Bank of Kunlun was established by Soleimani family in collaboration with the #CCP. The actual #Chinese main shareholders are Jiang Zemin, Wang Qishan, Meng Jianzhu (and Zhou Yongkang before jailed). Its asset has increased from $17 billion to $28 billion.
#Bank of Kunlun is a tool of #Iran’s Soleimani, Khamenei and the #CCP kleptocrats to launder money and evade the #US sanctions @robert_spalding @MischaEDM @WarrenPlatts @geoff_p_wade @DanRDimicco @Jkylebass @BenKTallmadge @IndoPac_Info @BoycottHegemony…

1/ Outside of core supporters, few in the #Arab world will shed tears over the death of Qassem Soleimani, who in their view went from a hero of resistance to Israel to mastermind of ethno-sectarian cleansing + decade-long campaign of weakening, isolating, butchering Sunni Muslims
2/Soleimani had emerged, in many people’s minds, as both the mastermind and symbol of Iran’s alleged hegemonic ambitions in the #Arab world and the leader of yet another foreign occupation force on Arab lands. #QassemSoleimani #Iran
3/ Seeing the Iranian Soleimani appear in Damascus, on the frontlines in #Syria, #Iraq, and at the heart of #Baghdad, was a constant reminder of the decline of not only Syrian and Iraqi regional influence and national sovereignty- but the defeat of #Arab nationalism itself
