US key supporter of terrorism in region: Iran military official

Tehran, July 17, IRNA The United States is the main sponsor of state terrorism and terrorist groups in the region, spokesman for Iran's Armed Forces says.

The United States is trying to distort the concept of terrorism and enlist Resistance groups as terrorist entities to safeguard itself a stronger foothold in the West of Asia region, Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri said on Monday.

This is while the US is the main violator of the human rights, and also the key supporter of the terrorist groups in the region, Jazayeri added.

He went on to say that based on the evidence and available documents, Washington and London have promoted and reinforced terrorist groups in the Middle East region.

To prevent the Arab-Zionist military coalition, the big community of Arabs in the region should adopt a new policy of standing against the US and Zionist aggressions and excessive demands, the military official stressed.

To achieve that end, General Jazayeri added, the Arab communities both across the world and region should give more support to the Resistance groups and focus on the liberation of the Palestinian Territory.

All regimes which helped the terrorists in Iraq and Syria are now beset by some problems, said he, adding their problems will increase in the future, and the US is not going to be an exemption as a rule.

Referring to the issue of Palestine, the official said the military experts believe that the victory of the Palestinians and regional Resistance forces over occupiers of the holy Quds is eminent.
