Sinister role of Iran, Hezbollah in 9/11 terror attacks exposed

NEW YORK: There is mounting evidence against Iran and Hezbollah proving their first-hand involvement in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11 2001 that killed thousands of US citizens, Asharq Al-Awsat reported.
Asharq Al-Awsat has exclusively attained and published six documents New York courthouse Judge George Daniels used for the verdict which fines Iran billions of dollars in compensation for the families of the victims of the attack.
The verdict also ordered compensation for insurance companies that bore fiscal losses due to the 9/11 attacks.
George Daniels condemned Iran for facilitating the execution of the terrorist attacks that affected both New York and Washington.
Documents procured by Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper emphasize Iran smoothing out the route for Al-Qaeda terrorists moving to campgrounds in Afghanistan for training, which paved the way for the 9/11 attacks.
Moreover, documents exposed that top Hezbollah figure Imad Mughniyeh — assassinated in 2008 — had visited the perpetrators in October 2000 and had arranged their flight to Iran with new passports before dispatching them for the attack.
Iranian administration had also given orders for border checkpoints and observatories to stamp the passports of the terrorist attackers, in a move to facilitate their advance.
Al-Qaeda persistently had a supporting lifeline provided by the Iranian government, which also provided the terrorist organization — according to the documents — with both financial backing and safe haven to terrorist top leaders after the Sept.11 attacks.
US and western media outlets have circulated information about a New York courthouse penalizing the Iranian President Rouhani’s administration with $10.5 billion remuneration.
However the plaintiff commission against Tehran’s government confirmed to Asharq Al-Awsat that reimbursements Iran has been ordered to pay are to exceed $21 billion, shedding light on the fact that the frozen Iranian dough to be released by the US government will not cover the demanded compensation.
The trial revealed that each of Osama Bin Laden, Ayman Al-Zawahiri — current leader of Al-Qaeda — Mughniyeh and other Iranian officials met in Khartoum to establish an alliance supporting terrorism.
A courthouse judiciary source, requesting anonymity, revealed that six people and bodies are accused in the case filed against Iran.
They are Supreme Leader of Iran Ali Khamenei, former Iranian intelligence minister Ali Fallahian, deputy commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Brig. Gen. Mohammed Baqir Al-Qader.
Administrational bodies among the accused are the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and its special operations division, the Quds Force.

British lawmaker calls for Asma Assad to be stripped of British citizenship 

  • The MP of the Liberal Democrats, Tom Brake, wrote to the Home Secretary Amber Rudd, urging her to use her powers to deny Asma Assad of her citizenship
  • Asma used social media to support her husband’s leadership after a global condemnation of his alleged role in a chemical weapons attack on civilians

A prominent British politician has called for Asma Assad, the British wife of the Syrian President, Bashar Assad, to be stripped of her UK citizenship. 

The foreign affairs spokesman of the centrist party, the Liberal Democrats, Tom Brake, wrote to the Home Secretary Amber Rudd, urging her to use her powers to deny Asma Assad of her citizenship after her social media posts in support of her husband’s regime.

 “The first lady of Syria has acted not as a private citizen but as a spokesperson for the Syrian presidency... Boris Johnson has urged other countries to do more about Syria, but the British government could say to Asma Assad, either stop using your position to defend barbaric acts, or be stripped of your citizenship,” Brake was cited by British daily the Guardian as saying.  

Asma used social media to support her husband’s leadership after a global condemnation of his alleged role in a chemical weapons attack on civilians.

She posted a message saying: “The presidency of the Syrian Arab Republic affirms that what America has done is an irresponsible act that only reflects a short-sightedness, a narrow horizon, a political and military blindness to reality and a naive pursuit of a frenzied false propaganda campaign.”

Conservative MP, Nadhim Zahawi, also joined the call to revoke her British nationality, calling Asma “very much part of the propaganda machine that is committing war crimes.”

Asma was born and raised in London to Syrian parents and left the UK in 2000 to live in Syria where she married Assad.
