On 20, July 2017 Kuwait ordered the Iranian Ambassador to leave Kuwait within 48 days.
According to ISNA, Kuwait has been under pressure from Saudi Arabia and that the shutdown of some of the Embassy’s branches is a direct order from Saudi Arabia. But the truth is far from it, the reason for the crackdown on Iranian diplomats is their connection with a convicted terror-cell containing one Iranian man and 22 Kuwaitians.

They have been exposed as spies for Iran and Hezbollah and was convicted last year after a cache of guns and explosives was found in a so-called «Abdali cell» in 2015.
The crimes of the Iranian regime does not end here. They were behind the AMIA bombing in Argentina on July 18, 1994, that killed 85 people and wounded more than 300. Argentina has held Hezbollah and Iran responsible. The prime suspect for this crime was Ibrahim Hussein Berro, a 21-year-old Hezbollah operative. Other suspects are Imad Mughniyah, Ali Fallahijan, Mohsen Rabbani, Ahmad Reza Asghari, Ahmad Vahidi and Mohsen Rezaee.

One other crime approved by the Iranian Mullahs is the attack on the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Tehran and the attack on the Saudi Arabian Consulate in Mashhad. Demonstrators were protesting the execution of Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr. The Iranian police did not fulfill Iran's obligations to protect the Saudi embassy from mob violence. This was a clear breach of Article 22 of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 1961, which took effect in 1964. The Article 22 states: «The premises of the mission shall be inviolable. The agents from the receiving state [the host] may not enter them, except with the consent of the head of the mission». In other words, the Iranian police were not upholding the Vienna Convention when they let protesters ransack and set the embassy on fire on Jan 2, 2016.

On July 19, 2017, the NCRI wrote that one of the top Kuwaiti officials reported on Monday that 14 Kuwaiti citizens who have been convicted of forming a terror group linked to the Iran regime succeeded to flee into Iran with high-speed boats. These fugitives have been convicted of planning an attack on the Kuwaiti government and sentenced to long-term imprisonment. The Supreme Court of Kuwait confirmed that the leader of this terrorist group, Hassan Hajieh associates with Abdolreza Dehghan who is an employee of the Iranian Embassy in Kuwait.
It is no secret that the Iranian regime uses these diplomatic facilities to export terrorism in all countries for example in Iraq they appointed a known terrorist as ambassador, Masjedi, he was IRGC commander at base Ramezan during the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980’s. Masjedi had a key role in the Quds force’s operations after the US invasion in 2003. This appointment is part of a hidden plan by the Iranian regime, they appoint terrorists so that they can commit terror through the Embassy and its personnel.
This should be a good enough indication that the Iranian regime breaks all diplomatic laws, they show no respect for foreign Ambassadors and diplomats and should receive the same disrespect from other countries. We, therefore, urge all countries to do as Kuwait and expel Iranian Ambassadors and Diplomats. The Kuwaiti prosecutors have confirmed the connection between Iranian Diplomats and terrorist cells so it should not be a very difficult choice to make.
