London, 4 Dec - The Lebanese people have always been divided over support for Hezbollah, which has both a political and a military arm, but that divide has only become more pronounced following Hezbollah's interference in regional conflicts, i.e. Iraq and Yemen, at the behest of the Iranian Regime.

This regional destabilisation, which has earned Hezbollah a terrorist designation from the US, Canada, and many Middle Eastern countries, was only exacerbated following the ballistic missile attack on the Saudi capital, Riyadh, in early November.

On November 4, the Iran-backed Houthi terror cell in Yemen launched an Iranian made ballistic missile against Saudi Arabia, which the Saudis blamed on Hezbollah and Iran because the Houthis had no way of producing the missiles themselves.

London, 4 Dec - CIA director Mike Pompeo said that he sent a letter to a top Iranian military official warning that the US would hold Iran accountable for any attacks it conducted on American interests in Iraq.

Pompeo, who has long been vocally critical of the Iranian Regime, said on Saturday at a defense forum at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute in Simi Valley, California, that he’d sent the letter to General Qassem Soleimani, a leader of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and elite Quds Force, but that Soleimani didn’t read it.

London, 29 Nov - The Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) think-tank has urged Donald Trump to focus on the Iranian Regime’s regional destabilisation and terrorism, rather than renegotiating the Iran nuclear deal.

It was argued that with better enforcement of the terms of the deal, it is possible to hold Iran to account as it is.

In a paper for the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) think-tank on Tuesday, Ya’alon wrote: “Reopening the [nuclear] deal is superfluous, mostly because it is possible to exercise pressure on the Iranian regime already today, without reopening the nuclear deal, on the basis of its violations of UN Security Council resolutions regarding arms sales, terror, its ballistic missiles program and human rights violations.”

London, 1 Dec - After declaring the opioid crisis a national health emergency, President Trump has yet to appoint a new Drug Enforcement Administration administrator.

It has been reported that over the past decade, Hezbollah’s involvement in transnational organized crime has evolved into a multi-billion dollar global enterprise. Therefore, the president should choose a DEA chief who understands the complex and global nature of drug cartels, and should also be cognizant of the growing convergence between transnational organized crime and terrorist groups such as Hezbollah.

London, 29 Nov - In his address to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly Joint Seminar of the Mediterranean and Middle East Special Group and the Sub-Committee on Transatlantic Defense and Security Cooperation at the Italian Parliament headquarters in Rome on Monday, Mohammed bin Amin Al-Jeffery, deputy chairman of the Shoura Council, said Tehran spends over $30 billion annually in supporting and promoting terrorism through its proxies. Al-Jeffery said Tehran is interfering in the internal matters of Arab countries and has a long history of supporting terrorism and armed groups. He added that Iran is utilizing all its resources to spread chaos in a number of countries in the region.
