Hezbollah slams US for sponsoring ISIL Takfiri terrorist group

Press TV

Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah has strongly censured the US for sponsoring the ISIL terrorist group across the Middle East region.

Hezbollah’s Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem said on Wednesday that the terrorist group’s first mission is to divide the region and drown it in a sectarian war and chaos.  

Hezbollah’s senior leader also added that Washington and any other parties taking advantage of the extremist group will be the first to pay the price.

The remarks come as Hezbollah has repeatedly accused the US and its regional allies of sending terrorists to Syria and Iraq to destroy the axis of resistance in the region.

Sources say the US regional allies, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and some other Persian Gulf Arab states are supporting the militancy in the region.

Political analysts say the scenario against Syria will backfire on the West as militants are now returning to the countries they came from.

The deputy head of Hezbollah also suggested that the only solution lies in encouraging Muslim and national parties to cooperate and safeguard themselves against the Takfiri threat.

This come as recent studies show people in Muslim countries are opposed to the extremist groups, which are carrying out deadly violence across the world.

A recent survey conducted by British polling group, Opinion Research Business, shows that more than 90 percent of the participants voiced their opposition to extremism.

Meanwhile, a separate survey in Syria indicated that an absolute majority of Syrians are opposed to foreign-backed groups fighting against government forces there.
