The pro-Hezbollah and pro-Iran “Axe de la Résistance” (‘Axis of Resistance’) Telegram channel shared a post promoting a BDS training event, the Middle East Media Research Institute’s Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (MEMRI-JTTM) stated in a report shared with JNS.

The “Axis of Resistance” shared a similar post on its Twitter account on May 25, the day of the event.

The promotional graphic shows an anti-Israel demonstration and a banner reading: “BDS-Boycott Israel Apartheid.”

The poster reads: “BDS France Paris-and-suburbs invites you to a BDS training day, on Wednesday 25 May, 2022, at 7 p.m. at the CICP, 21ter Voltaire street, 75011.”

In addition, a BDS email is provided for registration:

The CICP venue is the “Centre international de culture Populaire” (International Folk Culture Center). The online CICP calendar did not list the BDS training event, nor did the French BDS website.

MEMRI-JTTM assesses that since the “Axis of Resistance” was “the only platform promoting the event; thus, it appears that it was not meant to be widely publicized but was aimed only at the ‘resistance’-motivated.”

The flags in the group’s signature include Iran, the Palestinians, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria and Yemen.
