The Secretary of Islamic Republic of Iran’s Expediency Council, Mohsen Rezai, has pointed out the terrorist outfit, dubbed ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL) is the product of Zionism and Global Arrogance.
According to IRIB World Service, citing IRNA on Friday, speaking at Amir Kabir University in Tehran, Rezai emphasized that the crimes currently committed in Syria, Iraq, and Lebanon take roots from the Global Arrogance.
Rezai said that during the years of presence of US in Iraq, nearly 3,000 people were sent to regional countries to be trained. These trainees later joined ISIL Takfiri, terrorist outfit.
In further remarks, Rezai said the US and its allies, upon establishment and reinforcement of terrorist groups in the region intend to somehow tarnish the image of the sacred religion of Islam.
He stipulated that the West embroils Middle Eastern countries in confrontations against each other under baseless pretexts, to obstruct development and progress in Islamic countries.
