By INU Staff

INU - The Commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Quds Force, Qassem Suleimani, made remarks on July 10th that once again acknowledged the regime’s involvement in Iraq, where innocent people have been killed. He said, “Abu Mahdi al-Muhandes, commander of the Hashid al-Shabi was able to get hold of the [Iran’s] arms caches… after they requested the IRGC’s sole Sukho fighter jet squadron was placed at Iraq’s disposal instantly. Thousands of tons of weapons were given to them by [Iran]. [Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei] always emphasized the government … should not withhold any support from Iraq… and therefore Iran’s Defense Ministry was making weapons for Iraq round the clock and sending them.” He continued, “The Lebanese Hezbollah played a major role in the victories of Iraq and Syria… it was the Hezbollah that sacrificed many martyrs and placed all its experience before the Hashid al-Shabi. I kiss the hands of [Hezbollah chief] Hassan Nassrallah…” Suleimani added, “today the Iraqi Army is heading to become a ‘Hezbollah’ army.”

Iran Regime President: The Government Builds the Missiles

By INU Staff

INU - At a ceremony entitled Healthy Life Festival on 11 July 2017, the Iranian regime’s president Hassan Rouhani said: “…The strategic weapons built by the 11th (i.e. Rouhani’s) government, make up 80% of the total weapons built in the previous governments.”

In his preliminary speech, in an attempted to take missile claims and the claims about military presence in the countries of the region out of the hands of the Khamenei Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and in order to advance his own demands, he made significant confession saying that despite the sanctions, his government has given the Iraqi government and the Syrian regime all the money and weapons they needed.

He also noted the IRGC’s missile attack on Syria and said: “We hear that a missile fired from our land and targeted a center, a terrorist center. It is true that those who fired the missile tried hard and sacrificed but who built the missile? The defense Ministry builds these missiles.”

Rouhani’s statements defending JCPOA once again exposed more than ever the depth of divisions among the regime’s various bands.

While attacking Khamenei’s band in this regard, Rouhani said: “If the foreign minister were supposed to go out of the field with a few cursing and (insulting) slogans, the JCPOA would not be realized. Well, some people insulted the foreign minister, on their site, in their newspaper, on the anniversary of the revolution on February 11, on the streets of Tehran; well, one should not be excluded from the service field for the slogans of a few individuals.”

Rouhani also referred to the rival band as “a minority that monopolized everything” and added: “We should not be afraid of those who unfortunately have the big loudspeakers unjustly at their disposal…”
