While the Iranian regime continues funding terrorism in the region, most of the Iranian people have nothing to eat and must leave their homes to make $6 a day for their families. This is what Ali Khamenei and Hassan Rouhani have imposed to the people: Risking to contract coronavirus just for $6!!!

How Khamenei-linked foundation funds Iran’s terror group Fatemiyoun in Syria

In March 2020, the Iranian regime’s state-run TV channel, Ofogh, aired a program named “Javanmard,” in which the head of the Mostazafan Foundation (one of the richest foundations in Iran under Ali Khamenei) narrated his memories from Qassem Soleimani. Parviz Fattah said that Qassem Soleimani had asked him to pay the paycheck of regime’s proxies in Syria, the Fatemiyoun terror group. Parviz Fattah faced much criticism later from regime’s factions for revealing the regime’s secret issues.
This fact proves how the entire regime is working to fund terrorism.
