The Iranian regime’s intelligence is conducting extensive activities in Egypt and other Arab countries, according to London-based Arabic-language Asharq Al-Awsat who made the revelation citing Arab security sources.

In their report, the Asharq Al-Awsat daily reported, on Thursday, that a member of the Iranian regime’s diplomatic staff in Egypt was expelled four years ago amid the 2011 “Arab Spring”.

The diplomat named Saeed Hosseini was expelled by the Egyptian government over his involvement in acts of espionage in that country.

He was under the command of the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards’ Qods Force commander, Qassem Suleimani, the report said.

The Iranian regime has appointed a replacement for Husseini, according to the security sources cited in the report.

His replacement is in charge of funneling weapons to Houthi rebels in Yemen, the report said.

The IRGC’s terrorist Qods Force is tasked with the Iranian regime’s covert international operations, and has carried out terror attacks and assassinations against many opponents of the regime abroad.

It also provides training, weapons, funds and other aids to proxy organizations in countries in the region.
