The protests by Iranians over the killing of Mahsa Amini in a police facility have not subsided, and clashes between protesters and security forces trying to suppress the protests continue. Daily, Iranian citizens take to the streets to demonstrate against the murderous regime of the Mullahs.
Numerous media accounts have emerged recently following a terrorist incident in Iran, revealing more events in the country and how the Iranian regime collaborates with ISIS according to its interests.
The Cooperation Between the Supreme Leader and the Jurist
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, based in London, revealed the presence of a hidden and undisclosed alliance between ISIS and Iran, a collaboration between the Supreme Leader and political Islam groups in its Sunni version. This goes beyond superficial religious differences, signaling that politics and temporary interests outweigh ideological considerations. Iran has previously changed its strategy according to political positions, as there is mutual cooperation between them to fight against the Syrian side.
There is close cooperation between Hezbollah, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, and the terrorist organization ISIS on Syrian territory. In late 2022, the organization carried out an attack on “Guiran Prison,” which is under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the areas of self-administration in northern Syria. This attack resulted in the killing of six security personnel.
Terrorist Attack Against Sunnis in Iran
Iran witnessed a terrorist incident that resulted in the killing of four people, following a terrorist attack on the shrine of “Shah Cheragh” in the city of Shiraz, southern Iran. An armed individual attempted to storm the shrine and was confronted by security forces assigned to protect it.
Sources told “Al-Arabiya Al-Hadath” that the relationship between ISIS and the Iranian regime is surrounded by deep suspicions. What is notable about ISIS’s involvement in this incident is that the organization did not claim responsibility for it. Instead, the announcement came from Iranian officials, with the official Iranian television announcing that ISIS had claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack that targeted the Shah Cheragh shrine.
The source pointed out that both Iran and ISIS used the terrorist incident in an attempt to quell the daily protests taking place in Iran. It should be noted that ISIS had previously claimed responsibility for previous attacks in Iran, including the operations targeting the Iranian parliament and the mausoleum of the Islamic Republic’s founder, Khomeini, in 2017.
The current operation coincides with the first anniversary of the killing of the Kurdish girl Mahsa Amini, who was killed by Iranian morality police for not wearing the veil. This event sparked an uprising that included the majority of Iranian regions and evolved into demands to overthrow the regime, resulting in fierce clashes with protesters.
Iranian sources confirm that Iranian security agencies and the Revolutionary Guard have prepared comprehensive security plans in anticipation of new uprisings on the anniversary of Amini’s death. Activists on social media assert that new uprisings will take place in Iranian provinces on this occasion, which is what was achieved through a terrorist operation sponsored by ISIS.
