Hassan Firouzabadi, the chief of the general staff of Iran’s armed forces, told reporters on Wednesday that Iran will never cooperate with the U.S. in fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
ISIL terrorists have seized the north of Iraq in the past week, threatening to dismember Iraq and unleash all-out sectarian warfare with no regard for national borders.
Major General Firouzabadi said ISIL was created by the U.S. and Israel to increase the security of the Zionist regime in the region. He added that the ISIL attacks in Iraq are in fact a reaction to the victory of Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian presidential election.
