US Accountable for Creating ISUS Accountable for Creating IS

The judiciary chief denounced recent terror attacks in Lebanon and France, demanding that US officials should stand trial for the creation of the so-called Islamic State militant group. “US officials should not only be reprimanded but they should stand trial for supporting terrorist groups and creating Daesh [an Arabic acronym for IS],” Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani said on Monday, Press TV reported. He added that western countries, particularly the US, and all countries in the region that support IS should be held accountable for the recent terrorist crimes. Amoli Larijani lashed out at western countries and their “reactionary” allies in the region for supporting Islamic State, Al-Qaeda and other militant groups. “Europeans and Americans must stop sending terrorists to the region,” he said, warning that terrorism will return to haunt western countries that backed it. The remarks came in the wake of last week’s deadly terrorist attacks in Paris and Beirut, which were claimed by IS.
