Iran supports terror groups to restore Persian Empire: US Congress


The Houthi, Hezbollah and IMIS militias are all terrorist tools employed by Tehran, observers say.

Observers called on all Arab governments to look into the report issued by the US Congress that pointed to the increasing sense of grandiosity of the Iranian regime and the overwhelming desire of it's leaders to expand and restore the Persian Empire.

The mullahs, amid their attempts to restore the ancient glory of the Persian Empire, support and promote many criminal terrorist entities.

Nasrallah's militia

Hezbollah, led by terrorist Hassan Nasrallah, has taken over Lebanon and has become a state within the state, observers said, adding that the mullahs exploit Nasrallah's militia through money and weapons, and they have plundered land from Lebanon to carry out many assassinations and sectarian acts in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and other countries in the Arab world.

The ruling mullah regime in Tehran is also supporting the sectarian IMIS in Iraq, which has carried out horrific operations in Iraq, especially against civilians and Sunnis.

The Iranian regime is also responsible for the increasing support for Houthi militias in Yemen and the Shiite opposition groups in Bahrain.

Backing terrorism

A report by the US Congress said that the sense of greatness made the Iranians seek to replicate the ancient Persian Empire, which prompted them to support five entities in order to regain their hegemony over the region.

The report said Tehran was seeking to exploit the terms set out in the July 2015 nuclear agreement with the United States and Western countries to appear as a regional center for energy and trade and to negotiate future arms purchases.

According to the report, five entities receive funds from Iran, including allied governments and armed factions, such as the regime of Bashar al-Assad in Syria, Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Houthi militias in Yemen, the IMIS in Iraq and the armed Shiite groups in Bahrain.

The report stressed that the role of Iran is not limited to military support for allies and armed factions, adding that it provided funding for political candidates in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Observers said a report of such importance must be taken into account.

The Iranian terrorist regime in Tehran continues to expand and spread its dominance through militias and terrorist groups in neighboring countries.

The number of non-Iranian terrorist groups fighting in the region is not less than 250,000 mercenary terrorists in Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and other countries.
