An Iranian cleric says the so-called US-led coalition against the ISIL Takfiri terrorists is a “lie” and it will ultimately end in failure.
During his sermon to worshippers at the weekly Friday Prayers in Tehran, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati slammed Washington’s campaign to form a so-called anti-ISIL front, saying in reference to US authorities, “Are you saying that you want to fight the ISIL? Everybody knows you are lying.”
“Who created the ISIL and supported it? Is there anyone who does not know where their weapons come from? They either come directly from the US and Israel or from Saudi Arabia,” Jannati stated.
On Monday, France hosted a conference, dubbed the International Conference on Peace and Security in Iraq, to discuss ways of tackling the ISIL terrorists in Iraq and Syria amid US efforts to form the so-called international coalition to battle the Takfiri group.
Despite the international community’s emphasis on the importance of Iran’s role in the regional developments, Tehran was not invited to the meeting in Paris mainly due to opposition from the United States.
Tehran has on several occasions voiced support for the Iraqi government since it began fighting against the ISIL in June.
The ISIL terrorists are in control of some areas in Syria and have captured large swathes of land in Iraq.
The Takfiri terrorists have committed heinous crimes and threatened all communities including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians and Izadi Kurds during their advances.
