Despite the daily lies heard from Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani and his devious comparisons between circumstances in Iran and those of European countries, and considering the fact that the mullahs’ regime have always placed their state security before the health and well-being of the Iranian people, and refused to provide even the smallest budget to seriously impose quarantine conditions and other measures to address the novel coronavirus, the number of COVID-19 cases are constantly on the rise across Iran.

Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf (left) and Qassem Soleimani (right)

From among three candidates, the Iranian regime’s newly formed Majlis (parliament) chose  Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf as its new Speaker on Thursday, May 28. The other candidates, former head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Fereydoun Abbasi and former presidential candidate and interior minister Mostafa Mir-Salim respectively received 18 and 12 votes against Ghalibaf’s 230.

But even before the vote, Ghalibaf had been described as the favored candidate of regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei for the Majlis Speaker post, which gave him the edge over his rivals.

Ghalibaf’s appointment as the Speaker of the “Supreme Leader’s Majles” or the “the Majles of Velayat,” as the new parliament has become known, proves that Khamenei is out of options and maneuvering space, and his only solution to his current dilemmas is to put a hated criminal at the helm of the legislative.

Iran regime’s Air and Space Organization, part of its Ministry of Defense, and IRGC unit responsible for missile program are collaborating extensively and secretly in the field of missile technology transfer to Venezuela
The IRGC’s commanders even attended the June 2008 Venezuelan military exercise.
In such situation, the international community should not close its eyes on the regime’s recent activity.
If not, this will only help the mullahs to fund terrorism and prolong their rule.
