The EU has placed two Iranians and the Iranian Military Intelligence Service on the European terrorism list after it turned out that Iran is being held responsible for two political murders in the Netherlands.

Earlier it was already known that sanctions were imposed on the Iranians and the intelligence service.

Information from Dutch and foreign intelligence services revealed Tuesday that Iran is behind two liquidations in Almere and The Hague. In 2015 Ali Motamed was shot and two years later it was the leader of an Arab-Iranian separatist movement, Ahmad Mola Nissi, who was liquidated.

The murders were also the reason that two diplomats from the Iranian embassy in the Netherlands were deported last June.

Besides the Netherlands, Iran also tried to commit murders in Denmark and France. In the former country, the liquidation of another member of the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahwaz (ASMLA) separatist movement was prevented in October last year.
