Senior cleric: Daesh will be destroyed soon

IRNA – The evil organization of Daesh (ISIS) will be destroyed in the Islamic territories in the near future, Tehran Interim Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ahmad Khatami said.

Referring to the developments in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Bahrain, he said, ‘I will announce the good news of Hashd al-Shaabi (Iraqi popular forces) victory in Iraqi city of Mosul in the near future.’

‘You will hear the good news of destruction of evil organization of Daesh in the Islamic countries very soon,’ the cleric said.

Elsewhere in his remarks and talking about home affairs, Tehran Interim Friday Prayers Leader urged Iran’s Judiciary to vigorously work on corruption cases.

Speaking about the sedition which occurred in the aftermath of 2009 presidential election, he said US and the Western media had a full-scale support for the political agitators.

The enemy tries to provoke differences and polarize the Iranian society on the eve of upcoming presidential elections in 2017, Khatami added.

He said Iran’s Islamic Revolution message has been exported and today even the strongest storms cannot damage the revolution tree.
