Top Iranian Commander: Kobane massacre a grave catastrophe for humanity
Iran’s Armed Forces Chief of Staff Hassan Firouzabadi has condemned the massacre in Kobane and asked people around the world to raise awareness about it.
Hassan Firouzabadi in response to the massacre of Kobane asserted, “we are deeply concerned about this massacre and deem it a grave catastrophe for humanity.”
He criticized the ineffectiveness of airstrikes against ISIL and said, “unfortunately, the coalition forces have been selective about their airstrikes and thus, led to the acceleration of ISIL progress in the region.”
The Chief of Staff stressed the need for aiding Kobane people and said, “the neighboring country near the border of Kobane has blocked the way and prevents aids from being delivered to the people.”
Firouzabadi pointed to Kobane’s remarkable resistance and said, “if they receive proper aid, they will be able to force ISIL to retreat. ISIL is nothing but a bully and all people with good-will in the world and the Muslims in all Islamic countries must condemn ISIL moves in Kobane for it is only through their protests and awareness raising that Kobane people could be saved.”
