London, 13 Apr - It is well known that Russia has been supporting the Bashar Assad in Syria, but this year they have started to withdraw troops and turn a focus to domestic matters.

Why? Well, they don’t have the military force needed to threaten American or Israeli forces in the Levant and they see the benefits in leaving now.

Iran is a much different story.

London, 07 Apr - Iran’s Adviser for International Affairs, Ali Akbar Velayati, has rejected a discussion of ballistic missiles and Tehran's regional role with the West, calling it “an Iranian internal affair.” Velayati added, “There is no doubt that the Islamic Republic of Iran never seeks anyone's permission in its defensive sector.”

After a meeting with Faisal Mekdad, the Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister, Velayti defended Iran's policy in the region, saying Tehran continues its support and active presence in the region, indicating that it will support allies.

London, 09 Apr - Iran relies on three militias to export its Islamic revolution across the Middle East: Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza, and the Houthis in Yemen.

Of these terrorist groups, Hezbollah is undoubtedly the strongest and most successful. It controls a section of the Lebanese Parliament and has other Hezbollah factions around the world. This is due, in large part to the astronomical amount of funding they receive from Iran – billions of dollars every year. Another factor is that former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri approved the disarming of all factions after the civil war, except for Hezbollah, who then had complete control over Lebanese territory.

London, 05 Apr - In October of last year, a car bomb claimed the life of Maltese investigative reporter Daphne Caruana Galizia. One of the 47 libel suits against her was quietly dropped at a county court in the US the next day.

Proceedings were filed against Caruana Galizia earlier last year by Maltese private bank, Pilatus Bank and its owner, Iran-born Seyed Ali Sadr Hasheminejad, known as Ali Sadr. It came after a series of stories published on Caruana Galizia’s website claiming that Pilatus had laundered funds from allegedly corrupt schemes on behalf of offshore companies and individuals. They included Keith Schembri, chief of staff to the Maltese prime minister, Joseph Muscat.
