Background:

On June 30, Belgian authorities arrested a Belgian-Iranian couple with 500-grams of high-explosives and a detonator near Brussels, as they were heading toward the "Free Iran" gathering in support of the NCRI at outskirts of Paris. Tens of thousands of private citizens and hundreds of political dignitaries from the United States, Europe, and the Middle East took part in the event. On July 1, German authorities arrested an Iranian diplomat on route to Austria where he enjoyed diplomatic immunity. The German Federal Prosecutor stated on July 11 that diplomat, Assadollah Assadi, had given the order for the operation to the couple and personally handed over the bomb to them in Luxembourg.

Another major plot to blow up the gathering of the Iranian opposition in Albanian was thwarted in March.

The ruling regime has faced growing uprising at home since January 2018 with people protesting widespread corruption, financing of terrorism and waging war in the Middle East. Senior Iranian regime officials including, Khamenei and Rouhani have in recent months admitted to the key role the PMOI/MEK and NCRI are playing in organising and expanding the ongoing anti-regime uprising.
