End of Islamic State declares Iranian President

Commander of Quds Force in a letter toImam Khamenei announced the termination of the corrupt tree of ISIS and congratulated the glorious victory to the Islamic World.

This comes after a senior commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), Major General Qassem Soleimani, declared the end of Daesh in a message to the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, Reuters reported quoting Sepah News.

It also dealt a blow to the current and former U.S. governments and their vassal regimes in the region who created the terrorist group and provided it with full support to expand their dominance in the Middle East and help the occupying Zionist regime dominate the region, Ayatollah Khamenei added.

Videos and pictures of Soleimani, who commands the Quds Force, the branch of the Guards responsible for operations beyond Iran's borders, have been posted frequently by Iranian media in recent years, showing him at frontline positions in battles against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

"We helped them in accordance with our religious and Islamic duties", he said.

Iran, which backs Syrian President Bashar Assad, has sent thousands of "volunteer recruits" to fight IS on the ground in Syria and Iraq. He also criticized Arab powers in the region and asked why they had not spoken out about civilian deaths in Yemen's conflict.

The Syrian government on Tuesday lashed out at the Arab League for the final declarations of a meeting held Sunday in Cairo, in which the body condemned Iran for destabilizing policies in the region and the Lebanese Shia Hezbollah movement, which it accused of terrorism. The Revolutionary Guards initially kept quiet about their military role in both Syria and Iraq but have become more outspoken about it as casualties have mounted.
