We need a global coalition against Iran

Iran Focus

London, 25 May - Despite considerable efforts from many countries over the past 40 years, the world has been unable to tackle Iran’s destabilizing behaviour in the Middle East. One solution to the problem, according to an Iranian-American political scientist, is a global coalition that would confront Iran domestically, regionally, and internationally.

Dr. Majid Rafizadeh, a leading expert on Iran, wrote an op-ed on Arab News to explain the proposal in great detail, but here we will summarise his main points.

UN Chief calls on Iran ally to disarm and cease military activities

Iran Focus

London, 24 May - Iranian mullahs formed Lebanon’s Hezbollah in 1981 and are fully supporting it in the region.

The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, has called on the group to cease its military activities in the region – namely in Syria and Lebanon.

According to several media outlets, Guterres sent a report to the United Nations Security Council several days ago.

Listing Hezbollah Leaders as Terrorists Is a Great First Step to Tackle Iran

Iran Focus

London, 18 May - Earlier this week, the US and the countries of the Gulf placed six Hezbollah leaders their terror lists, which represents an important step to tackling the problem of the Iran’s terrorist proxies.

This move draws a clear line between Lebanon and Iran-backed Hezbollah, which the terrorist cell always seems determined to blur, thereby making the Lebanese people hostages who pay the price for Hezbollah’s crimes.

Iran-Backed Houthis Missile Threat

Iran Focus

London, 18 May - Saudi Arabia and the US have accused Iran of making and supplying ballistic missiles to the Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen, which were used in attacks against the Kingdom. While the UN has agreed that at least some of the missiles fired by the Houthis in 2017 were Iranian-made, in violation of the UN resolution that enshrines the nuclear deal.

That’s why Ralph Savelsberg an associate professor of missile defence at the Netherlands Defense Academy, completed an in-depth report into the missiles for Breaking Defense.

Bahrain Court Strips 115 of Nationality over ‘Terrorism’ in Mass Trials

Iran Focus

London, 18 May - In one of the most severe rulings yet in the Gulf island kingdom, a Bahrain court on Tuesday revoked the citizenship of 115 people at a mass terrorism trial — the most to lose their nationality at any one time, amid a year’s long crackdown on dissent. Increasingly, Bahrain's wields denaturalization as a hammer to beat back dissent on the Shiite-majority island off the coast of Saudi Arabia in the Persian Gulf.

The public prosecutor also said on Tuesday that the court also gave 53 people life sentences on terrorism charges.
