Minister: Iran to continue fight until destruction of terrorists
Tehran, Aug 13, IRNA � Intelligence Minister Seyed Mahmoud Alavi in a message on the occasion of the martyrdom of Mohsen Hojajji in Syria underlined that the fight against the terrorist groups will continue until the complete defeat of the Takfiri terrorist groups.
'The news on martyrdom of Mohsen Hojajji by savage Daesh mercenaries is another chapter in anti-Islam and inhumane crimes of this mercenary grouplet,' Alavi added.
He underlined that the defenders of the Shiite holy sites will surely become more determined to fight and defeat the Daesh Takfiri terrorists.
Following a US strike against the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (Hashd al-Shaabi), Daesh seized the opportunity to attack the Syrian troops deployed along the borders with Iraq in which Hojajji, an Iranian military advisor was taken hostage by the terrorist group elements and beheaded later on camera.
According to the governor of Sar-e Pol province in Afghanistan Mohammad Zaher Vahdat, Taleban and Daesh groups have taken 150 families hostage on August 6 and are killing them one after another. He added that some 50 hostages have been killed by the terrorists so far.
