Senior Iranian Commander Major General Qassem Suleimani said the world is indebted to the Axis of Resistance for defeating Takfiri terrorists in Syria and Iraq.
Addressing a cultural ceremony on Thursday, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Quds Force Major General Suleimani said a victory for Takfiri terrorists in Syria and Iraq “could have changed the history of the region and the world’s path”.
General Suleimani stressed that such a major victory against Takfiri groups, which had 7,000 suicide attackers, has greatly contributed to calm in the region and the world.
“In this event (rise of terrorists in Syria and Iraq), the Takfiri groups, either under the name of Daesh (ISIL) or others, emerged in a more frightening way than any other group. They had around 7,000 suicide forces,” the general said.
He added that the Axis of Resistance’s victory against Takfiri terrorists in Syria and Iraq belongs to all people of the world.
The Iranian general also pointed to the Islamic Republic of Iran’s clout and external power, saying those victories are mainly the results of Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei’s wise guidance.
On November 21, 2017, Major General Suleimani declared that the self-proclaimed caliphate of Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group had formally collapsed in Islamic territories after recapture of its last stronghold in Syria’s Albu Kamal.
