Iran: The Shiraz terrorist attack and the role of Western countries in recent riots

Iran’s avowed enemies, the Zionist regime and the United States, have spent months concocting nefarious plots to sabotage the nation’s efforts to achieve economic prosperity and development.
Following the unfortunate, albeit natural, death of Mahsa Amini, riots erupted in certain parts of Iran, mainly in Kurdish-populated districts.
The heartbreaking death of Mahsa was immediately exploited by Saudi-funded TV networks such as “Iran International” and “BBC” to incite further unrest and violence, culminating in a terrorist attack in the southern city of Shiraz.
An armed terrorist stormed the holy shrine of Shahcheragh in Shiraz on Wednesday, October 26, at 7:45 p.m. local time, murdering 13 innocent pilgrims. Iranian security officials are now investigating to determine the circumstances that led up to the heinous terrorist assault.
The Shiraz terrorist attack and the Western governments’ deafening silence
Western hypocrisy in dealing with terrorism has been exposed by the recent terrorist incident in Shiraz, for which ISIS immediately claimed responsibility and was denounced by the United Nations and many nations. However, the western capitals opted to remain silent.
Many political scholars argue that the basis of the Western understanding of terrorism is selective and dualistic. Terrorism is good when it targets countries like Iran, Russia, or China, but it is evil when it targets US interests.
Washington’s adoption of a dual approach vis-à-vis terrorism has resulted in violating international laws and principles and undermining global anti-terrorism measures.
Iran is facing a hybrid war
The methods and tactics used in hybrid conflict are quite different from those used in conventional military operations.
Examples of hybrid warfare include economic sanctions, cyberattacks, misinformation campaigns, fomenting chaos and blind terrorist attacks, stoking social divisions along religious and ethnic faultlines, and backing secessionist movements.
There is a clear connection between the developments that have been taking place in Iran and the use of hybrid warfare, which has propaganda as its most essential and primary component.
In fact, the anti-Iran television stations have served as agents provocateurs, broadcasting false information and exaggerating the scale of demonstrations in a vicious attempt to instigate more violence and, ultimately, to bring about Iran’s disintegration and civil war.
