Ayatollah Sistani urges expanded fight against Daesh
Iraq’s senior Shia cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani says the fight against Daesh is global, urging the expansion of the efforts aimed at battling the Takfiri terrorist group.
“The battle with Daesh is destined for all Iraqis. But it’s not their battle alone but the whole world, because terrorists target with their dark ideology all humanity, its culture, and morals,” Ayatollah Sistani said through a representative after nationally-televised Friday prayers.
The Daesh terrorist group controls parts Iraq and Syria. The Takfiri group has been carrying out heinous crimes in the areas under its control.
“It’s essential to join together all efforts and expand the parameters of countering this movement,” said Ayatollah Sistani.
