Mustafa Badreddin, who has countless terrorist acts in his record over the past 35 years, is one of the people responsible for massacre of half a million defenseless Syrian people notably women and children and rendering another 12million of them homeless on the order of the clerical regime’s leader, Ali Khamenei. He was being tried for participating in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri by the the International Criminal Court.
Four days earlier, Rouhani, President of the religious fascism ruling Iran, described the Iranian Revolutionary Guards atrocities "everywhere in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine" as "courage and heroism of commander Soleimani".
In July 2015, in meetings with Syrian dictator in Damascus and Hassan Nasrallah in Beirut, Zarif praised them for “fighting terrorism” and coordinating for suppressing and killing Syrian people. In January 2014, he paid tribute to Imad Mughniyeh, Mustafa Badreddin’s predecessor, and laid a wreath on his grave, National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) reported.
