Larijani: US, Israeli Entity fuel conflicts in region
Speaker of the Iranian Shura Council, Ali Larijani, condemned the U.S.-Israeli plots aimed at fueling conflicts and chaos and destabilizing countries of the region and Islamic states.
In a speech during a session of the council Sunday, Larijani said that events and proofs indicate that the arrogant and hostile countries have started their plots to ignite sedition and chaos in the region after they saw that the developments are not going to serve their interests anymore.
He added that what is happening in Egypt, Syria and Lebanon, particularly the brutality of the recent explosions in Lebanon and the armed theorist groups’ use of chemical weapons in Syria pave the ground for the US and the Zionist entity to fuel sedition and make fake peace with Palestine.
U.S.-reactionism terrorist war on Syria meant to undermine resistance, Iranian official says
In the same context, Assistant Chief of General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, Massoud Jazaeri, stressed that the terrorist war in Syria is an outcome of a scheme set by the USA and the reactionary powers in the region against the Resistance.
In response to some West officials’ statements on a military intervention against Syria, Gen. Jazaeri warned in a statement Sunday “the USA of crossing the redline regarding Syria,” adding “that would leave severe repercussions on the White House.”
He stressed that the media fanfare going on currently is because of the success achieved by Syria against its enemies.
Jazaeri said that despite the large scale attack, Syria has remained steadfast and achieved victory.
He pointed out that the collaborators with the US and Israel in the terrorist war against Syria will not be safe from retaliation.
