Iran’s ambassador to Lebanon says the Islamic Republic closely monitors developments in the Muslim world and plays an effective role in thwarting the enemies’ plots.
According to Press TV, in an interview with the Lebanese Al-Akhbar newspaper on Monday, Mohammad Fat’hali said that certain regional and foreign states as well as the Israeli regime are supporting Takfiri terrorist groups, who are currently wreaking havoc on Iraq and Syria.
Fat’hali said that Takfiri groups, including ISIL and the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front, are seeking to sow discord among Muslims and that the Israeli regime is benefiting the most from the situation.
The Iranian envoy warned that the Takfiri terrorist groups pose a threat not only to Islam and Muslims, but to the world as a whole.
He further criticized the so-called US-led coalition against the Takfiri ISIL terrorists for not taking a true and practical measure in that regard.
The Iranian official said the countries targeted by terrorism are able to counter terror groups without any foreign assistance.
