“US Coalition against IS will lead to deepening regional challenges”
Ayatollah Afif an-Nablusi, according to Rasa News, stressed the international coalition which claims to be fighting against the so-called Islamic State is instead working to promote their agenda for the Middle East.

Ayatollah Nablusi explained that he does not believe that the United States is an ethical and humane player who can save the world and the Middle East from terrorism. This is especially the case because they are the main source and sponsor of regional terrorism. The US and its regional allies, including Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, have been supplying Takfiri terrorists with weapons, funding, and thousands of extremist fighters from around the world. This gives them the strength and continuity to divide the region and ignite sedition among different sects of Muslims.

The director of the Imam as-Sadiq (A) Seminary in Sidon explained that the international coalition led by the US claims to be fighting against the Islamic State, but primarily aims to place the United States in a position of power in the region. The US maintains that they are fighting against the Islamic State and defending the region from the terrorism of these monstrous vultures. They declare that only they alone are able to do defend the region. However, he said, their alliance will lead to a deepening of regional challenges in the region and add many new challenges to the existing ones on the ground.

Ayatollah Nablusi stressed that this US-led alliance will push Israel to play a greater role on the Arab arena. The Americans want Lebanon, which has practiced a “self-distancing” policy, which means non-interference in the Syrian affairs, to get involved in regional affairs. This means that Lebanon would open its airspace and airports for American aircraft. “But this will cause them more problems in the region, plus it would worsen Lebanon’s internal security situation,” he warned.

His Eminence also emphasized that the US is looking to weaken the Iran-led ‘axis of resistance’ and seeks besiege Iran to turn Zionist regime into a regional superpower.
