Is Iran Supporting Terror
Terrorism is one of the vices that is bringing the world to its knees, literally. Every now and then we get news of terror attacks and hope this will come to an end somehow but the end is always elusive. The international community strongly holds that the Iranian government is supporting terrorism and different factions have leveled those accusation to Iran since its revolution. Iran is said to be funding, training, giving sanctuary to terrorists and providing weapons and equipment.
Most terror groups find refuge in this Islamic state mostly because of this one fact. Terror groups and are housed in Iran and are very comfortable planning and executing terror acts from here and no matter how the top leaders of the world try to dissuade Iran from doing this, efforts have been quite fruitless. It is now common knowledge that Iran is supporting terror in this way and thus supports the devastating subsequent terrorism acts in the world.
It has spread like world fire across the globe and especially in Middle East and it has lead to killings and denying civilian their rights and killings as well. When it comes to supporting terrorism, Iran has been at the forefront and it is known all over the world with lots of sources as witnesses. It is believed to be part of terrorism supporter due to a couple of motivations and a number of reasons.
One of the reason why they are so motivated to support terrorism is because of a statement or goal to change the world and this has been pushing them to support illegal groups. It is also important to keep in mind that through terrorism, Iran has been in a position to defeat its adversaries. It is important to consider that Iran has also defeated and attacked states that have showed support to their enemies and it is one of the reasons why they finance terrorism.
Iran has many militant allies but a Lebanese terrorist group is its closest ally, this group is perhaps the very best in terms of their capability. This group, created in 1980, was created with the help of Iran and it has been trained and armed over the years. Every single year, Iran made sure that $100 million went to this group, other years were even better in terms of this financial support. The type of weaponry give n by Iran to this group are just out of this world, things like anti-cruise missiles which are not popular, thousands of rockets were also provided. This is a group that is close to Iran’s heart and is what is used to attack countries against Syria and the likes.
Iran gives arms, training and financial support to more than 100,000 militant groups. Iran supports the current regime of Syria and without this support, the president would be out of power. Syria is a very close ally to Iran and is considered the only state ally. When the fighters are slain in war, Iran makes sure to support them financially.
