London, 21 August - It has been reported that two Iranians have been accused of spying for Iran in the United States. The two men were indicted earlier this week.

Reports say that the men were carrying out surveillance on a Jewish establishment. They were also accused of gathering information on backers of the Mujahideen-e Khalq (MEK), the main opposition group to the Iranian dictatorship.

The U.S. Justice Department named the two men as Ahmadreza Mohammadi-Doostdar and Majid Ghorbani, aged 38 and 59 respectively. Mohammadi-Doostdar had dual U.S. Iranian citizenship and Ghorbani is an Iranian citizen living in California.

The men were arrested on Thursday 9th August on the charge of carrying out surveillance on behalf of Iran.

Iranian ship

Iran Focus

London, 17 August - An Iranian ship, the Saviz near Bab-el-Mandeb raised suspicions because of its obviously non-commercial activity. The ship falls under the lifted sanctions within the nuclear deal, but US officials inspected it and determined that it was likely transporting weaponry or was being used for military purposes. Experts believe that it will be returned to the list of US sanctions against Tehran in the second batch scheduled for next November.

The Saviz was delisted from US sanctions as part of the effort to implement the landmark nuclear deal with Iran, US officials confirmed.

One of the main goals of this gathering was to increase coordination between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Intelligence, the Qods Force, and the agencies involved the attacks (both physical and verbal) on the Iranian Resistance.

Iran Focus

London, 16 August - US President Donald Trump signed The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) on Monday. This Act encourages the Defense Department and State Department to come up with a strategy to confront Iran in Syria, and prevents US support for Iraq in aiding Iran's allies. It has an unprecedented focus on Iran as a threat to both the Middle East and US national security.

The Trump administration’s stated goal is the confrontation of Iran in the region, beginning with its exit from the Iran deal and reinstating sanctions. The NDAA goes further, proposing a strategy on how to best confront Iran’s activities in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and elsewhere.
