Official: Iran Enjoys Most Powerful Intelligence Body in Region
“Today, Iran’s intelligence body stands atop in the Middle-East and later when the secrets and documents related to the ISIL will be released, you will see that we have not just fought the ISIL at borders or in Syria and Iraq and we had penetrated deep into the heart of the ISIL,” Rezayee, also a former top commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), said on Tuesday.
He expressed pleasure that Iraq and Syria have regained their might, and said Palestine will retain its might and power again and security and power of the region will also stand at its heights with Iran’s pivotal role.
His remarks came as Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani blasted the US for supporting the terrorist groups in the region, and warned of Washington’s fresh plots for the Middle East.
“The United States is the root cause of terrorism in the Middle East; and the US is hatching plots after collapse of the ISIL terrorist group in Iraq and Syria,” Larijani told reporters last month.
He reiterated that the US created the ISIL and Taliban in cooperation with the extremists in the region.
“The US intends to create concern among regional countries about their relations with Iran,” Larijani said.
He reiterated that now that the ISIL has been eliminated, Washington seeks new plots and claims that Tehran is a threat to the region.
“This is while we have never attacked any country and it is the US that has constantly threatened countries,” the Iranian parliament speaker added.
