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.

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 Meddles in Dispute between Algeria and Morocco

Iran Focus

London, 10 May - The Arab world was concerned over the recent emergence of an Iranian embassy in Algeria, but the arrival of Amir Mousavi, believed to be an Iranian intelligence agent, who intended to interfere in the dispute between Algeria and Morocco over the Western Sahara conflict, led Morocco to cut diplomatic relations with Tehran.

Morocco controls about 90 per cent of the Western Sahara territory, where the Algerian-backed Polisario have been fighting a protracted guerrilla war against Moroccan security forces. Irrefutable evidence reportedly proved that shipments of weapons, which included surface-to-air missiles, comprising of SAM9, SAM22 and Strela shoulder-launched missiles, had been sent via Iran’s Lebanese proxy Hezbollah. As well, members of the Polisario, are allegedly being trained in urban warfare at a military base in Tindouf, Algeria, where they are being taught how to use ground-air rocket systems.

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.

Iran’s Houthis fire more missiles at Saudi Arabia

Iran Focus

London, 10 May - The Iran-backed Houthis fired several ballistic missiles at Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Wednesday, but, luckily, these were intercepted by the kingdom’s missile defence systems and there were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.

This attack came only one day after the US - Saudi Arabia’s top Western ally – withdrew from the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal, which could mean that Iran may well target US allies and interests in the Middle East in retaliation.

The Iran-backed Houthis, who control the majority of Yemen since their takeover in 2014, reported that the missiles were aimed at economic targets in Riyadh. They have fired a series of ballistic missiles, at least some of which are proven by the UN to be Iranian-made, at Saudi Arabia in the past year.
