Iran Claims America Is Rebuilding the Islamic State

Iranian Chief Justice Ebrahim Raeisi on Wednesday accused the U.S. government of helping the Islamic State recover its strength in Syria and spread its operatives into countries such as Iran that oppose U.S. hegemony.

According to Raeisi, only Iran and the Shiite-dominated government of Iraq truly stand against ISIS.

“The U.S. claimed that it seeks to fight Daesh [ISIS] and formed a coalition for this, but we have witnessed the strengthening of Daesh in terms of weapons, logistics, intelligence, and other aspects,” Raeisi said during a meeting with Iraqi President Barhan Salih in Baghdad.

“While Iraq, Syria, Iran and regional countries are working together to eliminate the remnants of Daesh, the Americans do nothing but relocate the Daesh terrorists in the region,” the head of the Iranian judiciary claimed.

In a similar vein, Raeisi portrayed Iran’s chief terror operative, Gen. Qasem Soleimani, and Iraqi terrorist militia chief Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis as “heroes of the fight against terrorism” who were “martyred” when the U.S. eliminated them with a drone strike in January 2020.
