Iranian Top Commander: ISIL, Allies to Die Soon
Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi expressed confidence about the imminent defeat of ISIL and other terrorist groups, and said they will have no place in future developments in the region.
“Thanks God, the central government in Syria has revived again and has gained important victories in different fronts,” Firouzabadi said in Tehran on Sunday.
Stressing that the Syrian government has shown that it enjoys the necessary resistance power to protect its national interests and constitution, he warned, “The ISIL and its allies are collapsing and will be crushed under the wheels of future developments.”
Firouzabadi also praised the central government in Iraq for its successful performance against enemies, and said it could attain important successes in stabilizing Iraq’s sovereignty and safeguarding the country’s territorial integrity and independence.
In relevant remarks in February, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force Commander Major General Qassem Soleimani underlined that the terrorist groups in the region, specially the ISIL, are experiencing the last days of their lives.
“Given the heavy failures that the ISIL and other terrorist groups in Iraq and Syria have sustained, we are sure that these groups are nearing the end of their life,” Soleimani said.
He said that persuading and organizing the Takfiri streams to impair the face of Islam and creating sedition and civil war among Muslims is the last weapon used by the arrogant powers.
Also in October, General Soleimani underlined that the US moves in the region and the terrorist attacks by the ISIL would end in failure.
“I believe that both the US moves and the terrorist acts of the ISIL are doomed to failure because they are not in quest for truth,” General Soleimani told reporters in Tehran.
“Their solution will not lead to victory; we have all witnessed in Syria that the measures they adopted did not produce any fruit (for them),” he added.
General Soleimani underlined that the victories gained by Islam and the Islamic Republic of Iran had all been the result of their real quest for truth.
