Top Iranian General: Israel Key Mastermind of Crisis in Syria
Fars News – Commander of Iran’s Basij (Volunteer) force Brigadier General Gholam-Hossein Gheib-Parvar underlined that Israel is orchestrating the terrorist events in Syria with the help of certain regional rulers and Takfiri militants.
“The sedition in Syria is one of the Zionist regime’s plots, and the puppet rulers in the region want to hit a blow at Islam in cooperation with Israel,” General Gheib-Parvar said, addressing a ceremony in the Northern city of Sari on Tuesday. “The Takfiri groups (also) seek to uproot Islam under the name of Islam but they cannot attain their ominous goals,” he added.
In relevant remarks in April 2016, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan warned the world states of the threat imposed by terrorist groups which are supported by the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia.
“We believe that today the entire world is threatened by insecurity, instability and spread of horror resulted from acts of the Takfiri-Zionist terrorist groups which are supported by the US, Israel and certain regional countries, headed by Saudi Arabia,” General Dehqan said, addressing the 2016 Moscow Conference on International Security (MCIS).
He also downplayed the effectiveness of the so-called anti-terrorism coalitions by the terrorists’ supporters, saying they are not interested in serious and decisive battle against the terrorists and actually reinvigorate and recruit the terrorist groups under the disguise of humanitarian aid, truce, negotiations and deceptive slogans.
