Tehran claims it has documents proving the U.S. has formed an alliance with the terror group ISIS according to senior Iranian officials. So far though they haven’t provided any evidence.
Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mostafa Izadi on Sunday accused the U.S. of supporting Islamic State.
We possess documents and information showing the direct supports by the US imperialism for this highly disgusting stream [IS] in the region which has destroyed the Islamic countries and created a wave of massacres and clashes,” Fars news agency quoted Izadi as saying.
The alleged American support for ISIS, according to Izadi, is an instrument of “proxy warfare in the region” which is a “new trick by the arrogant powers against the Islamic Republic.”
The statement of the Deputy Chief of Staff echoes the remarks made by Iran’s Parliamentary Speaker Ali Larijani on Friday.
“The United States has aligned itself with the ISIL in the region,” Larijani said, according to the Fars news agency.
Larijani’s was addressing a funeral ceremony of the victims of Wednesday terrorist attacks in Tehran. Thousands gathered to commemorate the fallen, shouting “Death to Saudi Arabia” and “Death to America.”
