Iran: US, Israel behind rise of Takfiri terrorists in Mideast

TEHRAN (FNA)- Vice-Speaker of the Iranian Parliament Seyed Mohammad Hassan Aboutorabifard said Washington and Tel Aviv have created and supported terrorist groups, including Takfiri ones, to weaken the unity of the Middle-Eastern nations.

“Today the dirty hands of Americans and the Zionists have come out of the sleeves of the Takfiri terrorists and Saudis,” Aboutorabifard said on Saturday.

He further added that the Takfiri terrorists are used (by the hegemonic powers) today to wreak havoc on the Muslim nations.

In April, Supreme Leader’s top adviser for international affairs Ali Akbar Velayati warned supporters of terrorism and extremism in the region that their actions would backfire on them soon.

“The terrorist and extremist groups have been created and supported by certain western states, and certain regional states supported them financially and created serious problems in the region,” Velayati said in a meeting with Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop in Tehran.

Stressing that the supporters of these groups will not be able to escape the problems and damages inflicted by them, he called for serious fight against terrorism and extremism.

Velayati reiterated that the Islamic Republic of Iran condemns the terrorist groups’ crimes and has adopted serious measures in this regard.
