Tehran’s interim Friday Prayer leader, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati during his sermon to worshippers at the weekly prayers said that the so-called US-led coalition against the ISIL Takfiri terrorists is a “lie” and it will ultimately end in failure.
 
According to the reports, Ayatollah Jannati slammed Washington’s campaign to form a so-called anti-ISIL front, saying in reference to US authorities, “Are you saying that you want to fight the ISIL? Everybody knows you are lying.”
The religious scholar stated: “Who created the ISIL and supported it? Is there anyone who does not know where their weapons come from? They either come directly from the US and Israel or from Saudi Arabia.”
On Monday, France hosted a conference, dubbed the International Conference on Peace and Security in Iraq, to discuss ways of tackling the ISIL terrorists in Iraq and Syria amid US efforts to form the so-called international coalition to battle the Takfiri group.
Despite the international community’s emphasis on the importance of Iran’s role in the regional developments, Tehran was not invited to the meeting in Paris mainly due to opposition from the United States.
Tehran has on several occasions voiced support for the Iraqi government since it began fighting against the ISIL in June.
