Iran Still World's Top Terror Sponsor

The contents of a new report by the United States State Department should come as no surprise to those who stay up-to-date on Middle East news. Israel Hayom reports that the State Dept. has found that Iran continues to undermine peace in the Middle East, while keeping up its sponsorship of terrorist affiliates and proxies in the region:

Iran remains "the world's largest state sponsor of terrorism," using its elite Revolutionary Guard Corps and Lebanese Hezbollah to undertake "terrorist-related and destabilizing activities," the U.S. administration said in an annual report, released Wednesday.

The U.S. State Department's annual survey of global terrorism accused Iran of intensifying numerous conflicts and trying to undermine governments throughout the Middle East and beyond. Iran's "terrorist affiliates and proxies demonstrated a near-global terrorist reach," the report said...

The report comes as the U.S. is toughening its stance against Iran. President Donald Trump withdrew from the nuclear accord with Iran earlier this year and has begun to dismantle sanctions relief granted under the 2015 deal.

The reimposition of sanctions is one part of a larger effort by the U.S. to cut Iran off from funds used to support proxy forces and other "malign activity" in the region, including terrorism, according to Trump administration officials.

"Iran uses terrorism as a tool of its statecraft, it has no reservations about using that tool on any continent..."
