Iran and Hizballah act to destabilize Jordanian government
Western and Arab sources reported Sunday that Iran and Hizballah have launched a three-part operation to destabilize the regime on Jordan as counteraction for the kingdom’s role as the principle base for the training of Syrian rebels by American CIA instructors. Jordan also hosts 1.5 million Syrian refugees.
Part I: Planting Iranian Al Qods Brigades agents for terror missions. This month, an Iraqi-Norwegian infiltrator was caught entering Jordan from Iraq carrying 45 kg of explosives. He tried claiming he was a member of ISIS’s Sinai affiliate Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, but later confessed he had been sent by Al Qods and Hizballah for terrorist attacks in Jordan. Tehran denied this allegation.
Part II: Al Qods and Hizballah are recruiting Jordanian Palestinians and Muslim Brotherhood adherents for rowdy anti-government demonstrations against the kingdom.
Part III: Syria’s contribution is to intensify the military pressure on its border with Jordan.
