The Iranian regime’s meddling in the other countries’ affair is an important pillar for its existence.
The Iranian regime is the world’s biggest state sponsor of terrorism. For the past four decades, it has based its foreign policy on expanding throughout the Middle East. Most of its efforts have been centered around Lebanon, Syria, Yemen, and Iraq where the Iranian regime has established and provided extensive support to numerous militia groups.

Widespread protests erupted again in Iraq this weekend as angry citizens flooded the streets to demonstrate against government corruption and Iranian meddling in their country’s affairs.

Millions of Iraqis took to streets, demanding a none corrupt government and eviction of the Iranian regime from their country, January 2020
Several hundred, according to some sources, and several thousand, according to other sources, rallied last Friday, January 24 in Baghdad in response to a call for a “million-man strong demonstration against US presence in Iraq” by Moqtada a-Sadr, an Iraqi Shiite firebrand known for his extreme and unforeseeable political positions. In a tweet sent later in the day, Sadr showed his disgust towards the Iraqis who did not take his word for taking part in the rally. From his headquarters back in the city of Qom in central Iran, Moqtada a-Sadr had been preparing the move for several weeks, in a bid to take a leading position in ongoing Iraqi unrest along with Iranian support.
