Free Iran Gathering 2018 Event In Paris
The Iranian diplomat arrested in Germany for being the mastermind behind the attempted terror bombing of the Free Iran Gathering 2018 in Paris, France in June, has been fingered for running a spy network throughout Europe to ‘target and eliminate’ Iranian opposition groups on the Continent.
Intelligence reports and opposition groups are disclosing how the Iranian regime is behind a wide-scale spy network throughout Europe aiming to obtain technology to advance its ballistic missile program, weaken and disrupt the measures of opposition groups and ultimately carry out targeted assassinations.
Asdollah Assadi, an Iranian diplomat, was recently arrested in Germany for his leading role of orchestrating a plan to bomb the June 30th Paris rally in support of the main Iranian opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), according to sources within Iran.
The Iranian regime’s Supreme National Security Council ordered the Paris attack back in January and a senior Intelligence Ministry official, Reza Amiri Moghadam, head of the Foreign Intelligence and Movements, handed over all controls over the plot to Assadi in March.
Home-made TATP explosives were seized from an Iranian-Belgian couple in Antwerp before they reached the rally where high-profile figures such as Mayor Rudy Giuliani, now the lawyer of U.S. President Donald Trump, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and others took part.
“The Assadi arrest is therefore just the most recent alleged example of Iranian state-sponsored terrorism in which Tehran uses visiting government officials or accredited diplomats to plot,” read a report by the West Point Combating Terrorism Centre Sentinel journal.
“The station of the MOIS in Vienna, located on the third floor of the embassy, is the headquarters and the coordinator of the MOIS stations and agents in Europe,” sources said. “According to statements of various officials of the regime, the government of Austria and the Iranian regime have extensive, yet low profile relations. This has created a very suitable situation for setting up the main station of the MOIS in Europe.”
