“The intensifying terror and intimidation methods used by the ISIL in Syria prove that those supporting the terrorist group seek to obtain their goals through violence and want to fully raze certain races from the region’s population map,” Hessam Shoaib told FNA.
He said that the new methods of execution used by the ISIL show that the US supports the terrorist group directly since the technologies it uses for recording and producing the videos of its beheadings and executions is completely different from other groups in the region.
“Israel’s presence in ISIL’s command center is indicated by the savagery of this terrorist group that is based on Talmudic rituals,” Shoaib said.
