Israeli Minister for Foreign Affairs Avigdor Lieberman says Tel Aviv is prepared to help the United States in its efforts to form a so-called international coalition against the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group.
Following a Wednesday talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry in Washington, Lieberman’s office said in a statement that the Tel Aviv regime was “available to the US should it ask for help” in what was called the battle against ISIL Takfiri militants.
“Israel supports the US and backs its efforts to create a wide international front” against the ISIL, added the statement.
Earlier this month, US President Barack Obama said Washington was assembling an international coalition to “snuff out” the ISIL extremist group.
This is while the US and its allies have announced that Syria, which has been on the front line of the anti-ISIL battle, will not be a party to the so-called international coalition against the Takfiri terrorists.
Many observers have cast doubt on Washington’s sincerity in forming a coalition against the same terrorists it has long supported in Syria. They add that ISIL was created to protect and serve Israeli interests by causing rifts among Muslims and undermining the anti-Zionist resistance front.
Having taken control of parts of Syria, the ISIL terrorist group sent its militants into neighboring Iraq in early June and quickly seized large swathes of the territory there.
The foreign-backed Takfiri militant group has terrorized various communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians and Izadi Kurds, in their advances.
