The NCRI’s U.S. Representative Office (NCRI-US) will hold a press briefing on Wednesday, May 1 to release a new book, Iran’s Emissaries of Terror: How mullahs’ embassies run the network of espionage and murder.
The briefing will highlight the role of the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in hatching and conducting terror operations, particularly against Iranian dissidents in the United States and Europe.
The new publication details the decision-making process for such terror operations, the role of the regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, the agencies involved, the coordination process, and the cover-up for these terrorist operations.
Year 2018 witnessed a sharp surge in Tehran’s terror plots on the Western soil, from the United States to France and Albania. An Iranian regime “diplomat” is currently in jail in Belgium, five such “diplomats” were expelled by European nations, and several other MOIS agents, including two in the United States, are imprisoned, all for terrorism and espionage charges.
The escalation of terrorist acts in 2018 targeting the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI), also known as Mujahedin-e-Khalq-Iran (MEK), and the NCRI, is directly linked to the MEK’s role in the broad-based revolt on Iran’s streets.
The briefing will also discuss the nexus between the MOIS and the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), underscoring the imperative of designating the MOIS as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.
Alireza Jafarzadeh, the NCRI-US Deputy Director, will be speaking at the briefing.
