At the same time, Bahrain’s Interior Ministry, also declared the defeat of the operation by militias affiliated with the Iranian government to smuggle high explosives into the country, as well as some guns and ammunition in it. According to the international media, two people were arrested in this operation and one of them, as Bahrain’s government announced,had military training in Iran and had bought boats and weapons fromIran under the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ coordinate. The Revolutionary Guard’s intervention
News reports indicated thatBahrain Coast Guard confiscatedthis cargo in the country’s waters including 44 kilograms of C4 explosive, eight Kalashnikovs and 32 cartridge clips. The same news of illegal arms shipments to Bahrain were published earlier. The head of the Public Security Bureau in Bahrain announced and published by Bahrain’s state news agency on December 2013 that the confiscated weapons and ammunition were consist of “anti-personnel mines, anti-vehicle mines armored, 50Iran-made grenades and 295 shockersmade by Syria.
Tensions between Iran and Bahrain started to get sever along with the event “Arabic Spring” in the Middle East and the start of the unrest and protests against the government of Bahrain. At that time Iran, condemned the crackdown and Bahrain, in return, accused Iran of supporting Shiite dissidents and “clear interference” in the internal affairs.
Less than two weeks ago, a few days after nuclear agreement with Iran, the leader of Islamic Republicin Eid al-Fitr prayers emphasized again onsupporting the oppressed people of Palestine, Bahrain, Syria and Yemen. “We won’t stop supporting our friends in the region, no matter if this context approves or not. The oppressed people of Palestine, the oppressed people of Yemen, the Syrian government and people, the nation and the Iraqi government, the oppressed people of Bahrain, the true resistance fighters in Lebanon and Palestine, [they] will always be under our support. “He said. Khamenei talked about the “oppressed people” in these countries, while if any viewer have followed the Iran’s support news of the regime “of Bashar al-Assad” in Syria or Yemen’s Houthi militants, can easily notice in reality, this support of the “oppressed people” is not a support indeed. The Revolutionary Guard’s intervention
In recent years, Iran’s government has been accused of looking for creating a “Shiite crescent” which Iranian governmentdenied it, although the events in the region and the explicit words of the Supreme Leader and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander, confirmed its authenticity. In the most recent reaction to form the Shiite crescent in the Middle East, on May 8, 2o15, the major-general Mohammad Ali Jafari,Commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards,mentioned the emerging Shiite crescent with the recent events and said: “Speaking of the development of a Shiite crescent is like a sword that cut down the usurper Israel. Shiite crescent means the sympathetic and unity of the Muslims of the region such as Iran, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Lebanon and other strong countries in the region. ” However only oneday after these words of the commander of the army, General Ramazan Sharif, the spokesman of the army, called the strategy of “ Shia phobia” and the scenario of “Shiite crescent forming” a propaganda anda failed effort which are tricks of the arrogance world in this area ,In fact he deniedJafari’s statement. The Revolutionary Guard’s intervention
While Iran’s government is trying to show another feature of Iran’s interaction and peace with the world, the statements of the Leader of Iran and his under control military commanders’ remarks in support of Yemen’s Houthi militants as well as smuggling weapons cargo discovered in Bahrain could affect the nuclear deal. It also can intensify the hostilities with Iran in the region, something that no doubt will please the region including Israel as well as the Iranian extremist warmonger politicians.
