IRGC Commander: Iran Will Not Allow Disintegration of Iraq, Syria


Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari voiced Iran’s strong opposition to the enemies’ scenarios to disintegrate Iraq and Syria, and vowed to stand against them.

“We will defuse the scenario for disintegrating Iraq and Syria which is a Zionist-US plot,” Jafari said.

His remarks came after Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked spoke out in favor of an independent Kurdish state. She also urged increased cooperation between Israel and the Kurdish people. Shaked sees this as an opportunity to weaken Israel’s rivals in the region.

“We must openly call for the establishment of a Kurdish state that separates Iran from Turkey, one which will be friendly towards Israel,” Shaked told the annual INSS security conference in Tel Aviv on Tuesday, as cited by the Times of Israel.

More precisely, Shaked proposed the new state be founded between Turkey, Israel and Iraq.
