Report: Iran Spends As Much As $700 Million Annually To Support Terrorism

6

Iran has spent as much as $700 million annually to support terrorist groups, according to a U.S. State Department report released on Wednesday.

“The Iranian regime and its proxies continued to plot and commit terrorist attacks on a global scale,” states the report’s foreword. “In the past, Tehran has spent as much as $700 million per year to support terrorist groups, including [Hezbollah] and Hamas … ”

However, U.S. sanctions under the Trump administration have “constrained” Iran’s financial support for terrorism.

According to the report, the Islamic Republic is the largest state sponsor of terrorism. Terrorism-related sanctions have been a part of the Trump administration’s “maximum pressure” campaign on Iran since the United States left the 2015 Iran nuclear deal in May 2018.

Iran has been “directly involved in plotting terrorism through its [Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps] and Ministry of Intelligence and Security, including plots in recent years in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa,” said the State Department.

In addition, it said that the regime permits an Al-Qaeda “facilitation network to operate in Iran, sending money and fighters to conflict zones in Afghanistan and Syria,” and allows Al-Qaeda members “to reside in the country.”

  1. Thank you Nadler for supplying them with 150 billion dollars in cash. We in Boro park love you. We don’t care if Iran builds nukes to polish off Israel. We only care about shopping on 13 ave and not getting double parking tickets. As long as we can live our lives we could not care if six million Israeli Jews are in trouble. We will continue to vote for you. We will honor you and love you.

    • May I remind you that 78% and 69% of the Jews voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012, respectively. And 71% of the Jews voted for Hillary in 2016 (baruch Hashem, she lost). Trump got only 24% of the Jewish vote.
      Do you want some statistics about Jewish votes and charedi votes for DeBlasio?
      In the computer world GIGO (Garbage In Garbage Out) applies equally in politics.

  2. Well, everyone says that Obama gave them an airplane full of cash, but how come no one talks about some traitors from our community who support Democrats and consequently make the islamonazi murder machine possible?!
