Confronting Daesh is akin to national interests: General Soleimani

Kerman, May 24, IRNA – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps’ Quds Force Major General Qasem Soleimani defended taking action against Daesh terrorists.

Addressing a local gathering to mark liberation anniversary of Khoramshahr during the Saddam-imposed war (1980-1988), the general stressed that fighting the terrorist group is equal to securing the national interests.

The group whose terrorists slaughter human beings like ship while chanting religious slogans is a major threat, he added.
