How to move the battle 'inside Iran'

The battle will be inside Iran
Intelligence sources and analysts have hailed Saudi Deputy Crown Prince and Defense Minister Prince Mohammed bin Salman's threats "take the battle with the mullah regime into Iran".

On Tuesday May 2, bin Salman said in pres statements, "any struggle for influence between Riyadh and Tehran would take place “inside Iran, not in Saudi Arabia”.
The Saudi threats came due Iranian expansion in the Aran world through supporting terrorist militias in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and others.

The Baghdad Post presents in this report the possible scenarios the kingdom can resort to I this regard.

Opposition within Iran

The first scenario is the cooperation with growing opposition inside Iran. Riyadh has sought hard to attract prominent opponents Mir Hossein Mousavi, Mehdi Karroubi, and former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami.

Iranian authorities have launched a severe crackdown on opposition figures and groups inside Iran. Opposition leaders and activists are usually imprisoned, tortured and assassinated by the Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

Saudi Arabia had already signalled its support for Iranian dissidents when last July former Saudi intelligence chief and ambassador to the United States and Britain, Prince Turki al-Faisal, attended a rally in Paris organized by the exiled People’s Mujahedin Organization of Iran a militant left-wing group that advocates the overthrow of Iran’s Islamic regime.

 “Your legitimate struggle against the (Iranian) regime will achieve its goal, sooner or later. I, too, want the fall of the regime,” Prince Turki told the rally.

Armed uprising

The second scenario for Saudi Arabia to transfer the battle inside Tehran is to positively respond to the demands of hundreds of angry Iranian army officers.

Those officers, face a state of terrible persecution by the IRGC, now prepare for an armed uprising to remove the Mullah regime.

Tightening isolation  

The third scenario depends on tightening the international isolation of Tehran. The target is to make Iranians feel their silence will cost them dearly.

Media siege 

Another scenario is to break the media and informational siege on the Iranian people. The plan requires the establishment of TV channels to confront hundreds of Persian channels and radio stations loyal to Khamenei.
