IS Anti-Iran Moves Doomed

IS Anti-Iran Moves Doomed

A lawmaker said on Monday the recent attack by the so-called Islamic State (IS) terrorist group on the residence of the ambassador to Libya has been carried out in reprisal for its successive defeats in the region, and such moves will certainly end in failure.  
"Daesh (the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) terrorist acts against Iran are committed in retaliation for its recent consecutive defeats in the region," Shouhani said, adding, "Such measures are doomed to failure and will receive due response in the near future," ICANA reported.
The member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee noted IS attempts to harm Iran can be explained by the fact that "were Iran not present in the region, Daesh would definitely have seized Iraq and Syria."     
Criticizing western powers for their support of terrorism to weaken Muslim countries, he said IS and its western and Arab backers aim to further their political and economic interests in the region through creating tension and instability.
"Creating crisis for the resistance front (against the Israeli regime) is the clear reason behind the formation of takfiri terrorism," he added.
A takfiri is a Muslim who accuses followers of other faiths and some Islamic sects of being unbelievers.    
Two bombs went off at the gate of the ambassador's house on Sunday in the Libyan capital Tripoli. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, which left no casualties.
