Iranian Resistance in the International Media

During the past week, numerous Western and Arab media outlets covered the Iranian Resistance’s activities in its quest for regime change and establishment of democracy in Iran.

These media coverages were over the activities of the Iranian Resistance Units, an internal network of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), and the recent transatlantic conference by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), as well as the NCRI’s other events. Some of these media outlets also published articles either by the Iranian Resistance or in support of its quest for regime change.

The following are some examples:
Colonel Wesley Martin on TownHall: Iran’s Diplomatic Saga

In an article on TownHall, Colonel (Retired) Wes Martin the first Senior Antiterrorism Officer for all Coalition Forces in Iraq, referred to the regime’s foiled bombing plot of the NCRI’s annual Free Iran gathering in 2018 in Paris, which led to the arrest of the regime’s so-called diplomat Assadollah Assadi. Assadi’s trial is set to be held in Belgium on November 17, 2020.

“For decades, the Iranian government has avoided judicial accountability as the No. 1 nation-state sponsor of international terrorism. This will end on November 27, 2020, in Antwerp, when Belgium’s criminal court commences proceedings against senior Iranian diplomat, Assadollah Assadi. In June 2018, as third secretary in the Iranian Embassy in Vienna, Assadi delivered over half a kilo of Triacetone Triperoxide (TATP) to Iranian sleeper agents in Luxembourg. TATP is a high explosive used in bombs, suicide attacks, and improvised explosive devices,” read Col. Martin’s article.
