'Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has expressed regret over the deaths of Afghan civilians in Daesh terror attacks, saying the United States has been relocating the terror group from the Middle East to the South Asian country to rationalize its military presence in the region.
By transferring the Daesh terror group from Iraq and Syria to Afghanistan, the US seeks “to justify the continuation of its presence in the region and to create security for the Zionist regime,” Ayatollah Khamenei said on Tuesday.
The US and its allies invaded Afghanistan under the guise of the war on terror. Some 17 years on, the local Taliban militant group has only boosted its campaign of violence across the country, targeting both civilians and security forces in bloody assaults.
More recently, Daesh has also taken advantage of the chaos and established a foothold in eastern and northern Afghanistan. The Takfiri outfit has also stepped up its terror attacks in the war-torn country despite the presence of thousands of foreign troops there.
Touching on the massacre of hundreds of people at the hands of Daesh terrorists in Afghanistan in recent months, the Leader stated, “The same hands that created Daesh as a tool to oppress people in Syria and Iraq and carry out crimes against them are today seeking to transfer Daesh to Afghanistan after its defeats there.”
The recent killings in Afghanistan, the Leader, said represent an early stage in such a scheme.'
