Iran’s Major General Qassem Soleimani says that Daesh and other Takfiri terrorist groups were created to weaken Iran.
The Commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) made the remarks in Tehran on Wednesday during a ceremony marking the first anniversary of the killing of Brigadier General Hossein Hamedani (seen below) by terrorists in Syria.
The senior IRGC commander was killed by Daesh last year during an advisory mission on the outskirts of the Syrian city of Aleppo.

“Daesh and Takfiri terrorist groups were not created for war with Syria, they were established to target the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Soleimani said.
