|ISIL’s actions are a ‘pre-planned conspiracy’: Rafsanjani||
TEHRAN - Chairman of Iran’s Expediency Council Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said on Saturday that ISIL’s actions in Iraq are ‘pre-planned conspiracy’ for the whole region.
He noted that some regional and extra regional countries support ISIL which has complicated the situation.
He went on to say that the objective of the enemies of Iraq at home and abroad is to create rift in the country.
He added that national solidarity and no intervention by foreigners are the only solutions to the crisis in Iraq.
Militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant with a support by Baathists have captured several areas in northern and are threatening to dismember the country and unleash all-out sectarian warfare with no regard for national borders.
The ISIL militants have vowed to continue their military offensive until they reach Baghdad, but Iraqi forces and around 1.5 million volunteers succeeded in halting the terrorists’ advance and pushing the militants back.
