Under the Microscope

16 Mar 2024  |  رادیو فردا
The article examines and refutes several claims made by Iranian officials regarding the non-existence of the Guidance Patrol, the dismissal of depression as irrelevant in Iran, the improvement of the country's economic situation, the misrepresentation of inflation and economic hardship, the security of Tehran, and the capacity of Iran's food production. It uses evidence such as expert opinions, social media content, and official statistics to demonstrate that these claims are misleading and do not reflect the actual conditions faced by the Iranian people.

What would be Iran's role in Hamas' attacks on Israel?

12 Oct 2023  |  dw.com
Following Hamas' terrorist attacks on Israel from the Gaza Strip, Israeli authorities suspect Iran's involvement, a known supporter of anti-Israel militant groups in the Middle East. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Israeli officials like Ambassador Michael Herzog and UN Ambassador Gilad Erdan have voiced concerns over Iran's role in enabling Hamas. Iran, however, denies involvement, framing its support for Palestinian groups as legitimate defense. The attacks come amidst discussions of diplomatic normalization between Saudi Arabia and Israel, which Iran opposes. Despite denials, there are claims of Iranian Revolutionary Guard involvement in planning the attacks, though evidence is not conclusive. Israel has vowed a severe retaliation, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stating the attacks will 'transform the Middle East'.
