Lebanon

Iran Focus

London, 15 Oct - Lebanon is a crumbling Arab state, where the Iran-backed Hezbollah reign supreme and a once-rich country is failing to meet even the most basic needs of its people.

A Lebanese activist recently ran laboratory tests on the drinking water source in the southern suburbs of Beirut and found it was contaminated with human faeces. Thanks to a lack of supervision by the state, Lebanon’s once-rich water supply is now so scarce that the people do not have any other drinking options.

Iran’s Role in Yemen

Iran Focus

London, 12 Oct - The Iran Action Group released its findings on the rogue country’s malign actions in a 45-page report at the end of September, focusing on Iran’s role in destabilising the Middle East, particularly their arming and supporting the Houthi militia in Yemen.

London, 3 Oct - In an op-ed written by TIP Senior Fellow Julie Lenarz and published on Thursday, she claimed that after Iranian-backed Houthi rebels failed to attend peace negotiations in Geneva, the capture of the port of Hodeidah by Coalition forces is the only way to end the conflict in Yemen.

Lenarz said, “Iran’s use of Yemen as a southern gateway to attack Gulf states via Houthi missile attacks, primarily aimed at the UAE and Saudi Arabia, has been one of the most concerning developments of the conflict,” adding that, “Their ability to wage proxy war on the region, which has seen nuclear power plants, civilian airports and oil tankers all targeted, may well be curtailed by the capture of Hodeidah.”

US Calls on the Hague to Dismiss Iran’s Claim for $1.75 Billion

Iran Focus

London, 9 Oct - The US has called on the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Monday to dismiss a claim made by Iran to recover $1.75 billion in frozen bank assets.

Iran brought a lawsuit before the Hague tribunal, which is the United Nations top court, to recover funds that were frozen during the 1979 Islamic Revolution, when the mullahs stole power from the Iranian people.

London, 1 Oct - Home Secretary of the United Kingdom, Sajid Javid, will announce at next week’s Conservative Party Annual Conference the decision to proscribe the Iranian-backed, Lebanese-based terror organization Hezbollah in its entirety, following formal reconsideration of the UK’s position on the Iranian sponsored terrorist group.

In July, Stephen Crabb MP attacked the “entirely artificial distinction” between Hezbollah’s two wings. In fact, Hezbollah’s own leadership mocks the idea of two separate entities. The Home Secretary is expected to announce that he will be taking action to ban all parts of Hezbollah.
