Iranian regime’s escaping forward and measures following the defeat of the terrorist plot
July 19, 2018 - Following the Grand Gathering of the Iranian Resistance in Paris and the failure of the mullahs' terrorist plot and the arrest of regime’s agents, including a terrorist diplomat, the regime’s Supreme National Security Council held a meeting upon Khamenei’s order and commissioned the relevant bodies such as the Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Intelligence, the Quds Force, the Revolutionary Guards intelligence, and the state-run media to work to minimize the consequences of this big scandal.
The government apparatuses and authorities were obliged to pin the blame on the PMOI to cover this scandal. This is a well-known trick of escaping forward by which they attempt to portrait the arrest of the terrorists in Belgium and France and the arrest of a terrorist diplomat in Germany as a stage-setting to frame the regime on the verge of Rouhani’s visit to Europe, claiming that the PMOI had trapped that terrorist diplomat.
Following the release of the statement by Belgium Prosecutor and Federal Security Agency, the regime’s foreign minister said: "Just at the time the president's visit to Europe begins, an Iranian operation is disclosed and its “perpetrators” are arrested." He added that he is ready to cooperate with relevant authorities to clarify what is “just a deceptive operation to give a false address."
Mohsen Rezai, the former commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the secretary of the regime’s Expediency Council, in order to implement the same directive, made a cock and bull story to promote the two arrested terrorists in Belgium to high-ranking members of the PMOI. He wrote shamelessly that the two "contacted the diplomat and talked about their readiness to cooperate with Iran ..." and that's why "these two people met with our diplomat in a place where a package was exchanged which was recorded by closed-circuit cameras or by the Monafeqin [the term used of the PMOI by the regime]”. “These two members of the Monafeqin made themselves subject to the arrest, and confessed to such a plot led by the Iranian diplomat," said the former stupid commander of IRGC.
The regime’s scenario, which was revealed by the Belgian authorities, clarifies further absurd comments fabricated by the mullahs’ Supreme Security Council. A Belgian police official said: "In Luxembourg, there was a meeting that was under control, and all together (security services from different countries) quickly worked to discover the bomb and arrest Assadi. The regime seems to have hoped that the bombing would be seen as a PMOI’s internal issue, which was a theory that could have been credible, but when we arrested their people during the act, the situation changed. "( BuzzFeed website- July 11, 2018)
At the same time, the Ministry of Intelligence and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs commissioned some in Europe and the US who support the regime, including those interested in appeasing the regime, to pretend as if some elements in the regime arbitrarily planned for this terrorist crime. Daniel Benjamin, the counterterrorism coordinator at the US Department of State in Obama's administration, who exhausted all his efforts and up to the last minute to prevent implementation of the court’s verdict to delist the PMOI, and whose hysteric hostility towards the PMOI has clear motives, said in this regard that he  can't eliminate the possibility that this could be a rogue operation planned by Iranian security services — or by radical elements within the Iranian security services — aimed at embarrassing the Rouhani government and perhaps even putting them in charge of an embattled Iran.
Extraterritorial units of the Quds Force and the Ministry of Intelligence stations outside the country were once again required to focus on the use and recruitment of indigenous elements in Albania, Bosnia, Serbia and Kosovo in order to implement terrorist plans against the PMOI in Albania through them. The radio and TV overseas directorate of the mullahs was also obliged to prepare fake films and reports against the PMOI in these countries in order to set the stage for criminal acts.

The IRGC was mandated to expand the scope of its intelligence and espionage activities for obtaining information from within the PMOI.

Khamenei, Rouhani Ordered Bomb Attach Against Free Iran 2018 Gathering in Paris

The German Federal Prosecutor announced in its statement on July 11 that German judiciary had ordered the arrest of Assadollah Assadi, a mullahs’ terrorist diplomat, on charges of espionage and collaboration for murder.
He had previously been arrested on July 1 based on a European arrest warrant. According to the statement, Assadi had commissioned a couple residing in Antwerp in March 2018 to carry out an assault using explosives on the Iranian’s annual grand gathering in France on June 30, 2018, and gave them 500 grams of the explosive TATP in Luxemburg in late June. The statement added, Assadi was a member of the "Ministry of Intelligence and Security," whose tasks "primarily include the intensive observation and combatting of opposition groups inside and outside of Iran." It added that the German’s judiciary warrant would not hinder Belgium’s extradition request for the suspect.

Iranian regime’s terrorist plot to attack Iranian Resistance Grand Gathering in Paris was foiled
The conspiracy of the terrorist dictatorship ruling Iran to attack the Grand Gathering of the Iranian Resistance in Villepinte, Paris was foiled. The mullahs’ regime’s terrorists in Belgium, helped by the regime’s diplomat terrorists, had designed for the attack.
A woman and a man involved in this terrorist act were arrested by the Belgian police. The woman had come from Iran to Belgium in 2009. In this regard, an Iranian regime’s diplomat has been arrested in Germany.
Iranian Resistance had repeatedly warned before about the terrorist preparations by the so-called "diplomats" of the regime and the mercenaries of the Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) and the Quds Force in various European countries.

Wilrijks Couple Was Sleeping Cell For Iran
According to the security services, the Wilrijk couple who wanted to make an attack in Paris were sent to Europe as spies by the Iranian regime.

A terrorist diplomat of the clerical regime by the name of Asdollah Assadi, who was the main planner of the terrorist plot against the great gathering of Iranians in Paris, was arrested in Germany. The terrorist diplomat, who is the station chief of the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) in Vienna, has been stationed in Austria since August 2014.
The two arrested terrorists are Amir Sadoni and Nassim Nomeni and are residents of Antwerp.
Prior to Asadollah Assadi, an individual by the name of Mostafa Roudaki was the MOIS station chief in the regime’s embassy in Austria. Roudaki was transferred to Tehran and was subsequently dispatched to Albania in 2017 as the MOIS station chief there to plot against the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran.

What happened on the eve of the 2018 Free Iran the annual resistance grand Gathering ?


Friday, June 29, 2018 – Maryam Rajavi met this evening with Rudy Giuliani, attorney to the President of the United States. The meeting took place at the office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran in Paris on the eve of the Iranian Resistance’s annual grand gathering.
They discussed the latest developments in Iran including the expansion of popular protests against the clerical regime in Tehran and other Iranian cities as well as the regime’s fragile condition.
Maryam Rajavi reiterated that the protests have continued despite a massive wave of arrests and suppression. This indicates ripe circumstances and the volatile state of the society. At the same time, it vindicates the Iranian Resistance’s strategy and the undeniable roles of resistance units.
There is no going back, Mrs. Rajavi added. The regime’s overthrow at the hands of the Iranian people and Resistance is certain, and the regime has no way out.
Mayor Giuliani said the U.S. Administration has announced that the mullahs’ regime has usurped the sovereignty of the Iranian people. Mr. Giuliani pointed out, as the U.S. President and Secretary of State have repeatedly declared, this is a corrupt regime and the people of Iran have been its longest suffering victims.
Rudy Giuliani is among the signatories of the statement signed by 33 U.S. dignitaries addressed to the Iranians’ rally, Free Iran – The Alternative, in support of the National Council of Resistance of Iran and the ten-point plan of the NCRI President-elect.
He said that a firm policy on the regime, sought for many years, is only a first step. The next step is standing by the people of Iran and the democratic alternative, the National Council of Resistance of Iran, who struggle for a republic based on the separation of religion and state.
He added, “My Strong opinion is that the alternative is the National Council of Resistance of Iran under the leadership of Maryam Rajavi.”
Former Portuguese MEP: Europe Must End Lunatic Appeasement of Iran

Former Portuguese MEP Paulo Casaca told the Free Iran gathering in Paris in late June that Europe should come together with the US to tackle the Iranian Regime and support the people’s call for regime change.
He began by praising US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for his 12 conditions for a new nuclear deal with Iran, following the US withdrawal from the 2015 accord in May. He said that these 12 conditions are the minimum of normal relations in the Council of Nations and advised that they could well be adopted by Europe as well.

The agents of the repressive forces ruined the new bridge of Khorramshahr and destroyed the shops and the people’s belongings in order to pave the way for subsequent repressions. A vehicle of the special anti-riot unit was set to fire by the furious youth.
Intelligence agents and plainclothes agents of the regime arbitrarily arrested dozens of people on Saturday night and Sunday morning in an assault on people’s houses in various neighborhoods of the city.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, saluted the people and the youth of Khorramshahr and other cities of Khuzestan province, and described the shooting against defenseless people of Khorramshahr and suppressing their just demonstrations as an example of the crime against humanity and called for immediate action by the UN Security Council. She called on the Iranian people, especially the brave youth of Khuzestan province, to support the uprising of Khorramshahr.

Since taking office last year, President Trump has taken a series of positive steps toward changing the status quo with regard to U.S. Iran policy.
He has, for instance, shown more political courage than all of his predecessors by designating the entirety of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a global terrorist entity, instead of just its foreign expeditionary wing, the Quds Force.

Al Arabiya-ANALYSIS: As countdown to Paris protest begins, is ‘Free Iran’ the only alternative

Al Arabiya English-Maryam Rajavi: Regime overthrow is certain, Iran will be free

All voices confirm Iranian regime’s alternative
Looking at the news and various pieces wrote about Iran, we come to this conclusion that all reports, remarks and positions taken by senior Iranian regime officials, discussions around Iran and talks published in international media regarding the Iranian opposition confirm the fact that the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and its pivotal member, the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), comprise the alternative to Tehran’s mullahs.
This goes against the Iranian regime’s claims of the PMOI/MEK being nothing but a small group and only proves how Tehran is very worried about their potential.

13th day of truck driver strike 
These protests have now engulfed 281 cities and towns throughout all 31 provinces 

Tens of thousands of truck drivers across Iran continued a nationwide strike on Monday, marking its 13th consecutive day.
Strike of truck and heavy vehicles’ drivers has affected many other sectors of the economy and has put the regime in serious trouble. In particular, more than 90% of goods and passengers are transported by road transport vehicles. The anti-popular policies of the mullahs regime that destroyed the economy of the country have a double burden on drivers of trucks and heavy vehicles. In addition to increasing costs and inflation, these drivers suffer from an increase in extortion of the regime under the excuse of commissions, tariffs, etc.
People from all walks of life, alongside a variety of entities throughout Iran, are voicing their support for the tens of thousands of truck drivers on strike in this very restive country.
ehran’s Bus Drivers Union issued a statement supporting the truckers’ protests.
“We consider this strike as completely just and the drivers’ right to continue their protests. We also condemn any acts of aggression against the protesting truck drivers.”
This union is calling for urgent measures in response to the demands raised by these truckers and taxi drivers and calls on the International Transport Workers' Federation to support these strikes.
A group of road and construction engineers in Tehran issued statement in this regard emphasizing:
Day 10 of nationwide strike by Iran's truckers. These truck drivers are refusing to deliver loads as Iran Protests persist. Workers are often not paid for months. They now realize there's more to be gained by striking. (Footage from Kavar, May 31 via MEK activists)
