The U.S. State Department said in its Country Reports on Terrorism 2018, which was released on Friday, Nov. 1, 2019, that the Tehran regime has spent nearly $1 billion per year to support terror organizations “that serve as its proxies and expand its malign influence across the globe.”

Those groups include Hezbollah, Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. The report reveals that in spite of sanctions, the Islamic Republic is still the “world’s worst state sponsor of terrorism.”

In addition to subsidizing terrorist entities, Iran has also plotted and carried out its own terrorist acts around the globe, most notably in Belgium, France and Germany, said the department.

The failure to respond to Iran’s aggression in the region is making the country more brazen, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday, Oct. 31, 2019, in an apparent criticism of the USA’s lack of response to Iranian attacks in recent months on oil installations, drones and ships in the Persian Gulf.
