Iran attempted attack in Paris, half a ton ...err...kilo of explosives found - report
[Jpost] Half a ton kilo of explosives was brought to Gay Paree in a diplomatic suitcases in order to carry out a terror attack, before being foiled by French authorities, it was reported in the British media.
amount of explosives corrected per Comment #9 below

The British newspaper "Independent in Arabic" quoted an intelligence source as saying that in 2018 Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan, the abbreviation IRGC is a cognate form of Stürmabteilung (or SA), the term Supreme Guide is a cognate form of either Shah or Führer or maybe both, and they hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
had delivered half a ton of TATP explosives in diplomatic packages to a civilian plane that was supposed to be transferred to Gay Paree to carry out an attack in the city.

According to the report, the plane arrived from Tehran to Geneva in June 2018, following an Iranian plan to carry out a terrorist attack during a meeting of the Iranian opposition. According to a report based on intelligence sources, the attack was supposed to be carried out by an Iranian intelligence official who worked at the Iranian embassy in Austria since 2014, but French intelligence thwarted the attack after the authorities arrested a Belgian couple of Iranian origin who had the explosives in their car on their way to Gay Paree.

A Western intelligence source said the intelligence official visited Tehran on July 20, 2018, where he received TATP explosives. On June 22, he transferred explosives in a civilian plane from Tehran to Austria on flight OS872, when the material was delivered in a diplomatic suitcase aboard the Airbus A320. The plane had 240 passengers.

The source added that the transfer of the explosives into a civilian plane constitutes a clear and blatant blow to all international treaties related to security in international aviation, for if it enters into strong pockets of air, the plane would explode in the air. The source referred to the Russian plane that went kaboom! shortly after taking off from the Sharm el-Sheikh airport in Egypt three years ago, and all 244 passengers aboard were killed by an explosive charge weighing half a kilogram of TNT.

According to the intelligence source, the material seized by the Belgian couple in Iran and its transfer to a terrorist attack on a civilian plane is a dangerous violation of international conventions. According to the source, Iran frequently uses civilian aircraft and civilian airlines to transport explosives, weapons and ballistic missiles, as well as funds to Hezbollah in Leb and elsewhere in the world.

#1 Half a freaking ton???? That's a lot of blowing up. Worse if broken up into, say, five-pound lots and spread around.

There was an understanding that diplomatic pouches, with their immunity, wouldn't be used to kill people directly, espionage excluded.

Send the stuff back with a fuse designed to go off when in the presence of molested goat.

#9 Some errors in the report here. It was half a kilo.

Assadollah Assadi, was listed as a low-ranking official at Iran’s Vienna embassy, but identified by dissidents as station chief of the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) in Vienna since 2014. He handed the briefcase to an Iranian migrant family - a Mr. Amir Saadouni and his wife, Nasimeh Naami in Luxembourg and wanted him to blow up a meeting of the NCRI. The event 'Free Iran: the Alternative' was attended by dignitaries from the U.S., Europe and Middle East, including President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) Maryam Rajavi, advisor to U.S. President Donald Trump Rudy Giuliani, former U.S. Congressman Newt Gingrich, former French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner, former Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird, and others.

Iran denied a plot to blow up the NCRI also called the Mujahideen-e-Khalq obsessive fuckers, which aims to overthrow Khomeini and end clerical rule in Iran.

The spymaster was held in Germany on a Europe-wide arrest warrant and was later extradited to Belgium for trial. According to the charges, Assadi has participated in regime-sponsored assassinations for Iran for nearly thirty years.

Thanks for the clarification, Dron. I was unable to picture a half ton of most anything in diplomatic pouches.
