RNA - The Saudi regime is involved in conspiracies against Shiite countries, including Iran, the top commander said at a cultural ceremony in Iran’s northeastern city of Bojnourd on Tuesday.
“Saudi Arabia is trying to create division and insecurity in Shiite countries, but, by God’s grace, has failed to do so thus far,” Major General Jafari added.
Touching on the tense situation in Syria, the commander said the enemies created the Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group and killed a huge number of both Shiite and Sunni Muslims.
Today, however, the adversaries have realized that they “need to rely on Iran to settle Syria’s problems and war”, something acknowledged even by American analysts, he added.
In August, Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said members of a terrorist group captured in Iran had revealed “valuable information” about receiving support from Saudi Arabia.
According to Iran’s Intelligence Ministry, members of the Takfiri group who had been at large were arrested on August 18.
The terrorist group was disbanded in west of Iran in an operation on August 15 and 16.
