Earlier this month, IPT News reported that an unprecedented operation involving 15 international security agencies exposed an Iranian terror infrastructure that was planning a series of assassinations against Israeli and Western targets around the world. IPT News reports that in early June, national security and intelligence officials in Colombia issued an imminent security alert after discovering evidence that two Israeli businessmen were the targets of an assassination plan.
Following the evidence and the money, officials uncovered Rahmat Asadi, a high-ranking Iranian Quds Force fighter, as the mastermind behind the operation. Asadi is considered dangerous by most western intelligence organizations.
According to IPT News, this investigation, with the reported help of 15 other foreign intelligence agencies, led to the identification of a sophisticated Quds Force infrastructure to carry out similar actions in Azerbaijan, the United States, Bulgaria and Africa by hiring professional hitmen and drug cartels.
According to the 2020 U.S. Institute of Peace report, Iran has killed at least 21 dissidents throughout the world and has plotted dozens of attacks against Jewish, Israeli, Arab and Western targets.
Iran’s Quds Force is one of five branches of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) specializing in unconventional warfare and military intelligence operations outside Iranian borders. Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani was killed in January 2020 by a U.S. airstrike on his convoy outside Baghdad International Airport as he arrived from Syria. Hiring professional hitmen and drug cartels to carry out terror attacks for the Islamic Republic of Iran seems to be the regime’s latest modus operandi – and represents an additional threat against Israel, the United States and even the global community.
