TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A senior Iranian commander predicted the ultimate failure of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group as well as the US military campaigns, saying they both lack “reality”.
Nothing will achieve victory if it lacks reality, the commander explained, stressing that the ongoing attempts by the enemies against Iran, Islam and Shiite Muslims will never emerge victorious because they (attempts) are void of truth.
The ISIL militants made swift advances in much of northern and western Iraq over the summer, after capturing large swaths of northern Syria.
They have been committing heinous crimes in the areas they have taken, including the mass execution of civilians as well as Iraqi army troops and officers.
Since late September, the US and several of its Arab and western allies have been conducting airstrikes against ISIL inside Syria and Iraq with almost no significant result.
