Iranian FM Visit to Lebanon Further Supports Escalation of Terrorism Under Raisi Administration


Remarks made by the Iranian regime’s Foreign Minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on his trip to Lebanon last week have confirmed yet again that the regime’s terrorist activities would only increase under Ebrahim Raisi’s presidency.

During his trip, Amir-Abdollahian met with Hassan Nasrallah, the head of Hezbollah, the regime’s Lebanese terrorist proxy group. Lebanese media reported that the visit highlights how the regime has made the spread of terrorism one of their top priorities.

Amir Abdollahian has proudly represented himself as a ‘field agent’ who had close relationships with the regime’s top terrorist, Qassem Soleimani. During a meeting between members of the Majlis and nominees for the foreign, interior, and health ministries, Amir Abdollahian underlined he would ‘continue the path of Soleimani’.

Soleimani was the head of the Quds Force, the terrorist branch of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), which routinely spread terrorism outside of Iran via the regime’s proxy groups.

Amir-Abdollahian acknowledged that the regime will continue to export fuel products to Lebanon as the country is facing fuel shortages amidst their economic and political crises, all the while the regime continues to fund Hezbollah and its activities.

Hezbollah has been in charge of coordinating the fuel shipments from Tehran, despite the regime being sanctioned on their oil sales by the United States. Even worse, Amir-Abdollahian has stated that the regime is prepared to provide further aid to Lebanon and is ready to build power plants in the country.

These remarks come at a time when Iranian people sell their organs for a living and could hardly make ends meet. Over 450,000 people have died due to the Covid-19 outbreak and the regime’s negligence. In summer, thousands of Iranians who were in intensive care units passed away due to the recurring power outages.

In reference to the regime’s plans to build power plants in Lebanon, the state-run Barkat News wrote last month that the money for this project is ‘coming out of the Iranian people’s pocket’ while they already have to suffer under Iran’s current crises.

The crises in Iran are already making society restive, but the regime is adamant about funding foreign terrorist groups to ‘export domestic crises abroad’. According to the regime’s top officials, Lebanon, Iraq, and Syria are described as the regime’s ‘strategic depth’.

The regime’s ongoing shipping of fuel to Lebanon through Hezbollah aligns with the regime’s strategy to export terrorism.

With the mounting crises in Lebanon, the Lebanese people have taken to the streets in dozens of protests, blaming Hezbollah for the crises the country is facing. The current issues include a dramatic drop in the local currency, as well as severe fuel and medicine shortages.

With the regime’s involvement in Lebanon, the threat is that the United States could extend the regime’s sanctions to the country, a possibility that the Al-Akhbarieh daily stated that Lebanon could not endure.

The regime’s need to support Hezbollah is because of the proxy group’s involvement in the Syrian war and other conflicts across the Middle East on behalf of Tehran.

The regime’s former president, Hassan Rouhani, also acknowledged on April 8 that ‘the frontline and diplomacy are two arms’ of the regime. As long as the mullahs’ regime stays in power, the international community should expect Tehran to increase its malign activities.
