ccording to Daily Mail, Tehran has proof the U.S. directly supports
ISIS and Washington is behind most of the terrorist acts in the world.
This was announced by Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces,
Major General Mostafa Izadi. Besides, Izadi stressed that the U.S. used
this support as an instrument of "proxy warfare in the region”.
However, it should be mentioned that Mostafa Izadi hasn’t presented any
documents that would prove his claims yet.
It is notable that it’s not the first time when the Iranian government
accused Washington of supporting terrorism. Earlier, Parliament Speaker,
Ali Larijani, called the U.S. the "international” version of the
Islamic State group and said Washington had exchanged democracy for
money. He also said the White House’s possible involvement in the
terrorist attack at Iran’s Parliament building and the mausoleum of
Auatollah Ruhollah Khomeini that took place on June 7.
Against the background of the recent events, such harsh statements of
the Iranian government seem to be quite relevant. Nowadays, there are
several signs that Washington is indirectly supporting terrorists.
First, the U.S.-led Coalition’s Air Force repeatedly carries out air
strikes on the positions of the Syrian Army and pro-government forces.
Besides, just after such attacks, ISIS terrorists frequently intensify
In its turn, the U.S. Central Command justifies such attacks by absurd
allegations that the government forces "posed a threat” to U.S. bases
and training camps for the Syrian armed opposition.
Secondly, the current U.S. administration intends to aggravate and
weaken the economic situation in those countries that in fact fight
terrorism and try to establish stability in the region – Iran, Syria,
and Russia. This is shown in the expansion of the sanctions against
Thirdly, the Pentagon has never coordinated its actions in Syria with
the Syrian government, and, apparently, it is not going to do this in
the future. Shall we talk about a frank violation of all existing norms
of international law and the resolutions of the United Nations Security
We remind that, earlier, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan
publicly announced the U.S. involvement in the support of ISIS
terrorists in late December 2016. According to him, the U.S.-led
coalition fighting in Iraq and Syria supports ISIS terrorists. Erdogan
added that the Coalition’s aircraft often dumped "humanitarian aid” for
the "moderate” opposition directly into the hands of terrorists.
The result of such help we can observe now. The Syrian Army often
discovers large weapons depots with US-made arms in liberated territory.
One of these depots is located in the east of the province of Homs.
Obviously, if Washington was really interested in fighting terrorism, in
particular ISIS, we would not have seen any indiscriminate air strikes,
protracted operations, or tougher sanctions. It seems that under the
pretext of fighting ISIS in Syria, the United States are using
terrorists to prevent the successful advancement of the Syrian Army, and
promote their own interests in Syria.
