London, 16 Nov - The Iranian Regime is desperately trying to cover up its responsibility in the large-scale destruction that followed Sunday’s earthquake by downplaying the extent of the damage, suppressing the people, and refusing outside offers of help.

The Regime wants to suppress their people’s legitimate protest and anger over the disaster, so they sent in suppressive government forces like the Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) led by Mohammad Ali Jafari and the Basij led by Ali Fazli, rather than aid conveys and the emergency services.

London, 16 Nov - In the aftermath of the horrific tragedy that struck Iran late on Sunday, the Iranian regime has all but abandoned the people that need help urgently. After the devastating earthquake hit the country, the Iranian government, bar a few sympathetic tweets, has failed to react appropriately. Instead, it is trying to cover up the reality of the devastation and is trying to suppress the demonstrations that are taking place in solidarity of all those affected.

The people of Iran are angry, and quite rightly so. After the earthquake, instead of sending help in the form of convoys and forces, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Mohammad Ali Jafari and the Basij force commander Ali Fazli were sent.

London, 15 Nov - Following Sunday’s earthquake that killed over 530 people, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani promised to launch an investigation into why housing built by the Regime under former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad collapsed while privately built homes were able to withstand the 7.3 magnitude tremors.

However, the explanation is simple. Widespread corruption in the Iranian Regime meant that money was leeched from the housing project- as it is with any other project that should benefit the Iranian people- and shoddy houses were built with substandard materials. This is why so many died.

London, 14 Nov - Thousands of Iranians have been forced to spend a second night exposed to the elements following the earthquake that killed over 540.

On Sunday, the 7.3-magnitude quake struck at the Iran-Iraq border, in a mountainous region spanning Iran’s Kermanshah province and Iraqi Kurdistan, causing many occupants to flee their homes.

However, humanitarian aid has since struggled to get to the quake zone, leaving many without the most basic of necessities including water, food, medicine, and shelter.

London, 11 Nov - The shock announcement of Lebanese prime Minister Saad Hariri’s resignation is making many wonder what the reasons were behind his decision. There are many political reasons such as the influence of Hezbollah which is in control of around a quarter of the Lebanese territory and is more powerful than the country’s army.

Iran is the one behind Hezbollah and Syria’s interference in Lebanese politics, and it is certain that this was at least part of the reason why Hariri resigned. He left the country before announcing his intentions – no surprise, given that Hezbollah is known to assassinate those that speak out against it.
