Nakhilat news website reported,Today, the fourth hearing was held against, Habib Farajullah Chaab, known as Habib Assoud, the leader of the ringleader of the ASMLA terrorist group, at Monday, February 14, 2022, in Branch 26 of the Islamic Revolutionary Tribunal of Tehran.
According to an indictment, he is charged with “managing and heading the ASMLA terrorist group as well as planning and carrying out numerous bombing and terrorist operations in Khuzestan Province and destroying public property in order to counter the Islamic Republic of Iran’s establishment.
The ASMLA, which is directly supported by foreign intelligence agencies, has been pushing to separate Khuzestan — home to the country’s Arab population — from the rest of Iran through engaging in an armed conflict against the Iranian government.
In September 2018, it claimed responsibility for an attack on a military parade in Ahvaz that killed 25 people, including members of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) and civilian bystanders, and injured 70 others.
Chaab was arrested in November 2020 on the back of a set of “specialized and combined measures” by Iranian intelligence forces.
