Top Iranian General: US playing major role in all regional crises

FNA- Commander of Iran’s Basij (Volunteer) force Brigadier General Gholam-Hossein Gheib-Parvar blasted the US and Saudi Arabia’s support for the terrorist groups, and said Washington’s footprints are seen in every crisis in the region.

“The US should be blamed for the war in Yemen and the House of Saud acts like a puppet in this regard,” General Gheib-Parvar said on Tuesday.

“They are fighting against Islam under the name of Islam and by supporting the Takfiri grouplets,” he added.

General Gheib-Parvar stressed that the US hand is seen in all crises in Yemen, Bahrain, Syria and all Islamic countries.

In relevant remarks in 2015, Chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi described the Saudi attack on Yemen as a strategic mistake, and said the US interference is the common cause of all crises in the region.

“By attacking Yemen, Saudi Arabia has made a strategic mistake,” Boroujerdi said in a meeting with Head of Iran-Ivory Coast Parliamentary Friendship Group Mohammad Ouattara in Tehran.

He also referred to the crises in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, and said, “The common point of all the regional crises is the US direct or indirect meddling as it (the US) has no reservations for violating human rights to reach its interests.”
