Tehran, SANA – Speaker of the Iranian Shura Council Ali Larijani said that the US is trying to exonerate itself from the obnoxious crimes perpetrated in Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and Iraq through sending aid planes and attacking terrorists in Iraq while “such exposed means will be doomed to failure.”
During the Council’s session held Sunday, Larijani added that the “The hostile policies adopted by the West towards Islam, particularly by the US along with the practices of the ignorant extremist groups in the region have caused a chaos in the Islamic world.”
Larijani criticized the policy of double standards adopted by the US towards the phenomenon of terrorism in the region.
He said “Displacing the Christians and destroying religious sites in Syria has not been an important issue for the US, and the bloodshed and crimes perpetrated by terrorist groups against the Syrian people haven’t hurt the feelings of the US President while now he sends several warplanes to bomb terrorists in Iraq …”
If the US is a defender of human rights, why it has kept silent towards the crimes of the Zionist entity against the Palestinians for more than 70 years and the crimes of terrorist groups against the Syrian people for more than 40 months and their crimes against the Iraqi people …, Larijani said.
He indicated that the Syrian people have remained steadfast in face of pressures and terrorist operations for more than 40 months in a time when the US has been continually supporting the terrorist organizations.
Recently, the US Defense Ministry has announced that American warplanes bombed the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorists organization near Erbil city.
