Pakistan designates Tehran-backed group as terrorist organization

Islamabad has declared the armed group "Zainabiyoun," which consists of radical Shiites affiliated with Iran, a terrorist organization.

According to the Pakistani media, the activities of "Zainabiyoun" have been banned because it is an organization that violates the peace and security of the country.

"Zainabiyoun" is a Pakistani Shiite group formed by the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) to provide military support to the government of Bashar al-Assad.

This group, together with another proxy group of Afghan Shiites, Fatemiyoun, has been in military conflict with Bashar Assad's opponents in recent years.

Pakistani authorities announced on January 21 that they had arrested a trained terrorist member.

Pakistani officials claimed at the time that the man was supported by a neighboring country and had ties to "Zainabiyoun."

In the same case, the Iranian government uses the services of the two illegal and armed terrorist organizations mentioned in repressions inside the country.

It should be noted that the US Ministry of Finance imposed sanctions against the "Fatemiyoun" and "Zainabiyoun" groups in January 2017 while Donald Trump was president.
