Terror Plot Reveals Iran Is Afraid Of Democratic Opposition

Terror Plot Reveals Iran Is Afraid Of Democratic Opposition

On June 30, several European authorities thwarted an attack on the annual Free Iran rally organized by supporters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). Considering that Assadollah Assadi, the intelligence station chief at the Iranian embassy in Vienna, was arrested along with two would-be bombers, it is abundantly clear that the plot was masterminded in Tehran. While Tehran tried to depict the foiled plot as a “false flag” operation by the opposition, the claim was rejected as ridiculous by a senior U.S. State Department official. In fact, the opposition’s intelligence from inside the Islamic Republic determined that the decision to undertake an attack on the rally was made months earlier by the highest Iranian authorities, including both Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani.
