In light of the crimes and violations committed by Iran and its arms in the recent period, and as most countries have recognized Iran as a supporter of terrorism, the mullahs regime is trying to divert attention by pointing false accusations at other countries in the region.
Iranian officials have recently been desperately accusing the Saudi Kingdom of baseless claims like targeting the US Embassy in Baghdad. Hashmatullah Fallah Bishah, head of Iran’s National Security Committee, has said in press remarks that the Saudi Kingdom seeks to drag the region into chaos.
A rocket landed inside Baghdad’s fortified Green Zone, which houses the sprawling U.S. Embassy, in an apparent warning shot to the United States amid escalating tensions with Iran.
The rocket landed less than a mile from the U.S. Embassy near Iraq’s parliament building and caused no injuries or serious damage, a security official said. But the timing of the launch has increased worries in Iraq that it will be drawn into a conflict between two of its closest allies, the United States and Iran.
Journalist Osama al-Hitaimi, an expert on Iranian affairs, told The Reference in an interview that it is a known fact that chaos in the region has been sponsored by Iranian policies for years.
He added that Iran has been interfering in the internal affairs of regional countries to expand the Iranian influence and spread tension and chaos through its arms, such as the Houthi militia that constantly targets Saudi oil facilities and airports through Iranian-manufactured drones.
The Houthis threatened on March that they were building their ballistic capabilities and their forces stand ready to strike Riyadh and Abu Dhabi.
Iran, according to Hitaimi, is seeking to pressure the Saudi Kingdom, especially after recent tensions between Tehran and Washington, pointing out that recent remarks regarding Saudi Arabia are deemed “ridiculous.”
Hitaimi further affirmed that Iran is the only defendant in this case, as it seeks to threaten the United States by proving able to target its interests in the region and will not stop because it would consider backing down a compliance with the latest US sanctions against it for its malicious schemes and nuclear program.
Saudi Arabia said on Monday that its Air Defence Forces intercepted two ballistic missiles at dawn yesterday; the first over Taif, heading for the city of Mecca, and the other over Jeddah, fired by Yemen’s Houthi rebels, local media reported.
Furthermore, Saudi Arabia announced last week that drones attacked two oil pumping stations in Afif and Dawadmi provinces in Riyadh.
The Houthis claimed responsibility for the attacks.
