Members of Iran’s Quds Force were recently instructed by the country’s most authoritative figure, Ayatollah Khamenei, to increase their attacks on western targets in retaliation for what Iran believes is a direct effort to help the Syrian opposition topple Syria’s President, Bashar al-Assad, according to senior western intelligence officials.

The directive was given at a meeting of Iran’s National Security Council in Tehran, which was held to review a report commissioned to examine the geo-political ramifications for Iran if Assad were to lose power in Syria.

Khamenei himself is said to have commissioned the report, according to western intelligence officials, and in response to international sanctions against the Iranian regime, along with western support for Syrian rebels, Khamenei has decided that his country “cannot be passive”.

According to one of the intelligence sources who spoke with The Telegraph in Britain, Khamenei believes he must show “America, the Zionists, Britain, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and others that they cannot act with impunity in Syria and elsewhere in the region”

Mother of Islamist Gunman Mohammed Merah, Who Murdered Rabbi and 3 Children in French Jewish School Attack, Causes Outrage at Ongoing Terror Trial

The order given by Khamenei to Iran’s Quds Force follows a number of Iranian linked terrorist attacks in recent months, including a foiled plot to kill a Saudi Arabian ambassador in Washington D.C., and multiple bomb attacks against Israeli diplomats in February. A unit of the Quds Force, known as “Unit 400”, is reportedly behind many of the overseas attacks being carried out under Iranian directives.

“Unit 400 seems to have been involved in all the recent Iranian terrorist operations,” said a senior Western intelligence official. “The Iranian regime now seems determined to retaliate for what they regard as the West’s attempts to influence the outcome of the Syrian unrest.”

Nearly a week ago, dozens of Iranian men were captured by Syrian rebels.  Many of them are suspected to have been sent to Syria by the Iranian government to help Bashar al-Assad continue his crackdown, and officials in Tehran have demanded their safe return.

  • I believe that the Iranians caught by the Syrian free army should be sent back to Iran as soon as possible with their balls cut off.

    I feel thaty such statments that as have been made by the Iran President show a clear picture of what their full intentions are for all of us that are not extremist fundamentalists or of any other beleif system there might be. China,Russia,Japan,All western European States look what is happening under the very domains of your countrys laws of Freedom. You are being undermined by them with the useage of such laws which by any reasonable means would have not caused civil unrest or unlawful actions. I am Jewish,i would no more consider to undermine the thinking of others to act against the true Lawful State Governing bodies than i would cut off my foot. I hope that others will wake up and understand that these lawless factions are useing thier Faith to distroy our abilities to survive and worship G-d. If you do not, then we all will be called their Slave people by Muslim Law.

    The Ayatollah Khamenei is a tools in the devil plans, Iran is keep under the regime dictate by Muslim extremist who had indoctrinate his people’s especially the young mind.I’m convict that most of the Iranian citizen want to live in peace and to be free to speak up.That can’t happened till country are sustaining the regime as commodity for they reliance to the oil.
    We word wide can only ask God to change thing around and defeat the devil plan.
