Iranian President Hasan Rouhani congratulated Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei, armed forces and peoples of Iran, Iraq, Syria as well as Lebanon on termination of the ISIL terrorist group in the region.
President Rouhani also praised Imam Khamenei, Muslim fighters, governments, peoples, diplomats and armed forces of Iran, Syria and Iraq for terminating the terrorist groups which he said have brought about nothing but malevolence, misery, destruction, barbarism and massacre.
The Iranian President also underscored that the terrorist groups, sponsored and armed by global powers and certain regional countries, looted several museums in Iraq and Syria and finally sold the historical works in the market in collaboration with their backers.
“The terrorists also sold girls, burned people alive in cages and cut the throats of several elite youths in the region,” Rouhani said, addressing a local gathering
“We never imagined that such savage and criminal acts could be committed by world powers, western countries, US as well as the Zionist regime in the 21st century,” President Rouhani said.
“Their masters, who were directing the terrorists, thought that they could continue their massacre and plunders in the region for many years.”
