London, 13 Nov - The malign actions of the Iranian Regime deserve to be scrutinised by the international community and punished accordingly.

In the past two months alone, the Iranian Regime has:

• Plotted the assassination of Lebanon’s Prime Minister, Saad Hariri, and forced him to leave office through their Hezbollah proxy.

• Provided weapons to their Houthi proxies in Yemen to fire on Saudi Arabia

London, 1 Nov - The Iranian Regime is set to emerge as the big winner in the Kurdish Independence Referendum by taking advantage of the Iraq’s destabilisation.

Ever since Kurdish president Masoud Barzani, leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), held the referendum on independence in September, the balance of power has changed dramatically, exposing the Kurds limited hand and Iran’s dominant role in the fate of the Kurds.

Despite the Kurdish people's overwhelming vote for independence, Iraqi troops backed by the Iranian Regime swarmed the Kirkuk region, which the Kurds rescued from ISIS, on October 16, and forced the Kurds to flee.

London, 30 Oct - For months now, Middle East experts have been warning that Iranian-backed militias would set out to steal land, recovered from ISIS as part of a joint mission, along the Syria-Iraq border.

As it turns out, these predictions weren’t strong enough.

The proxies of the Iranian Regime have stolen almost the entire Iraq-Syria border zone, stretching almost all the way from the northern border with Turkey to Iraq’s Anbar province in the south.

Their biggest land grab occurred just last week, when Kurdish forces withdrew from disputed territory that they reclaimed from ISIS after receiving threats from Qasem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

London, 31 Oct - Commander of the Iranian Quds Force, Major General Qassem Soleimani, was behind the operation that resulted in the recent takeover of Kirkuk by Iranian backed militias and the Iraqi army. This shows that Iran, without a doubt, has an extremely influential role in Iraq.

It is unclear how much of a role was played by the Prime Minister of Iraq Haider al-Abadi, but it is certain that the big decisions were made by Iran to be followed in Iraq.

Al-Abadi is being criticised for resorting to violence against the Kurds so early on and they say that he should have engaged in talks in Erbil, the capital of the Kurdistan region. Furthermore, Erbil played a big role alongside Baghdad in the fight against ISIS.

Iran Focus

London, 25 Oct - Syria and Iraq are currently seeing a huge shift due to rapid political developments out of Iran (who are controlling the Iraqi government and helping the Bashar Assad dictatorship to massacre their own people) and the USA (who are working with the Syrian opposition and the Iraqi Kurds in order to defeat ISIS).

One of the biggest and most recent developments is the withdrawal of the Peshmerga (Kurdish) forces from the Kirkuk region in Northern Iraq, when it was announced that Iraqi troops (backed up by Iran) were heading to reclaim the disputed area after the Kurdish Independence Referendum. There were even accusations that the Jalal Talabani Kurdish group were working with the Iranian Regime (against their best interests) in order to gain control over the other Kurds.
