The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) discovered that a recently-released issue of a pro-al Qaeda magazine, Jaysh Al-Malahem Al-Electroni,encouraged readers to exploit the COVID-19 virus and use it as a weapon against the western world.

The article, “Ways And Means Of Exploiting the Corona Pandemic Against The Powers Of Global Unbelief”, was sent out on Telegram and Twitter and was first published on November 26. The target audience: “lone wolves”

“Remember to support your religion, retaliate for your brothers in the beloved Palestine, and fulfill the promise of your imam Osama [bin Laden] that the Crusaders will never dream of security unless we have it in reality in Palestine,” an excerpt of the article reads, according to MEMRI.

One tool that the publication is urging readers to use when carrying out attacks are masks. First, “lone wolves” can use masks to carry out attacks while hiding their identities, according to the publication, which was translated by MEMRI. Second, “lone wolves” can offer “poisoned masks” to “crusaders.”

Russia launches surveillance satellite for Iran for ‘agricultural, environmental, and scientific purposes’

In the latest partnership between Iran and Russia, Roscosmos Corporation, a Russian state-owned company, “launched an Iranian photographic satellite from its Vostochny Cosmodrome using a Soyuz rocket” reports The Foreign Desk. The surveillance equipment is expected to send high-resolution pictures from 500 km above the earth’s surface, and state media in Iran says it will generate images for agricultural, environmental, and scientific purposes.

This is not the first time Iran has found friends in ‘high places’. In 2022, Russia assisted Iran with the launching of a remote-sensing Khayyam satellite from a facility in Kazakhstan. Iran’s Telecommunications Minister, Issa Zarepour, portrayed the project as “fully domestically developed.”Since Russia began its invasion of Ukraine in 2022, Iran and Russia have worked together to mitigate the numerous international sanctions that have been levied against their governments.

“Tehran has sent ballistic missiles, attack-drones, and battlefield munitions to assist Moscow’s military operations against Ukrainian forces. Russia has reciprocated with the transfer of military aircraft and advanced technical support” reports The Foreign Desk.

Shortly after the Biden administration and members of the United Nations allowed preventive sanctions to expire earlier this year, Iran sent hundreds of ballistic missiles to Russia, reportedly in return for fighter jets and helicopters from Moscow.

“The U.S. and European partners declined to prevent the expiration of U.N. sanctions in late 2023 that curbed Iran’s ability to transfer missiles” reports The Foreign Desk.
