Iranian Official: ISIL’s Demise Close
“The ISIL terrorists will soon be buried with all their committed crimes in the most debasing manner,” Rezayee, a former Chief Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), wrote on his Twitter account on Thursday.
He reiterated that most surprising of all is that despite the root cause of the event in which an army of 30,000 ISIL militants attacked a group of 100 devotees of Imam Hossein (PBUH), and slaughtered men and took women and children captive, today centuries after the Battle of Karbala (680 AD), ISIL terrorists with all the crimes they have committed like their ancestors in Karbala, will be soon buried under ground in absolute contempt.
In relevant remarks in June, former Commander of the Iranian Ground Force Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan underlined the Iraqi Army’s might and the nation’s unity in foiling the plots and threats hatched by the enemies and their allies, including terrorists of the ISIL.
General Pourdastan expressed the hope that the experienced Iraqi army and united people would overcome the ISIL soon.
He further stressed that certain countries want Iraq to return to its previous situation.
General Pourdastan said that hegemonic powers are after taking control over rich resources of Iraq which enjoys an important geopolitical situation in the region too.
Clashes between the ISIL and the Iraqi army continue after the former made gains in Nineveh, Salahuddin and Tikrit following the capture of Iraq’s second biggest city Mosul.
