IRGC Commander: ISIL to collapse in 2 months, Israel fears

FNA- Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari underlined that the ISIL will collapse within the next two months, noting that Israel is concerned about annihilation of the terrorist group.

“As Brigadier-General Soleimani has promised, the ISIL will be uprooted within the next two months,” General Jafari said in the Southern city of Ahvaz on Wednesday.

Noting that the Israelis are afraid of the events which are happening in the region, he said, “They have recently stated that Iran is annihilating the ISIL and they are concerned that the ISIL is being annihilated.”

His comments alluded to earlier remarks by Commander of the IRGC Quds Force Major General Qassem Soleimani who said that the ISIL terrorist group is taking its last breaths and will vanish in less than 3 months.

“In less than three months, we will declare the end of ISIL and its ruling on this planet and we will celebrate this victory in Iran and the entire region,” General Soleimani said, addressing a ceremony in the Northern province of Gilan last Thursday.

“We will deal our blows decisively and incessantly to the body of the cancerous tumor created by the US and Israel,” he added.

One of the reasons why Iran has embarked on helping the Syrian and Iraqi nations is that the problem of ISIL cannot be solved through diplomacy in the two countries, he said.

“While ISIL claims that killing Shiites is imperative, there is no option but Jihad (holy war),” General Soleimani stressed, adding, “The enemy is out to dry up Islam and destroy Muslims’ independence and occupy Islamic states.”

“Today, confidence in Iran and its strength is unprecedented and other nations and governments highly trust in Iran because it has succeeded in saving various nations and no other country can compete with Iran to this end.”

The commander added many believed that the war against ISIL would change into a war between Shiite and Sunni Muslims while today we are witnessing that the bloods of Shiite young men are being shed to defend the honor of Sunni people.

This is an undeniable truth that if the young Shiites from Iran and Afghanistan had not rushed to defend defenseless people in Aleppo in Syria, they could have been slaughtered by ISIL, he said.

“Today the existing unity, solidarity and friendship between Shiite and Sunni Muslims are more than ever,” General Soleimani stressed.
