BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 A.M.) – ‘The US follows the law of the jungle’ in Syria, according to Ayatollah Khomeini’s adviser and former Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan, in comments from an RT interview in Tehran broadcast on Sunday.
SOT, Hossein Dehghan, Ayatollah Khomeini’s adviser and former defence minister of Iran (Farsi): “At first we should get rid of the danger Idlib poses to Aleppo, Hama, Homs and Damascus. It’s unacceptable to let terrorists equipped with many different military vehicles and armour to head to some other city, to Aleppo, for example. This is out of the question. Secondly, we have to separate the terrorists and moderate opposition in order to let the latter, along with the Syrian government, fight terror groups.”
SOT, Hossein Dehghan, Ayatollah Khomeini’s adviser and former defence minister of Iran (Farsi): “The US and Israel’s decadence is the fact that they always put their plans into action. These countries only follow their own interests and goals, they always cover them with these ‘chemical attack’ speculations. The US and Israel skew world public opinion through a disruptive information war. The states at risk have only a chance to address the UN where they constantly face an American veto. The US follows the law of the jungle while talking about Syria and the whole world as well. Americans and Israelis do not care about civilian casualties. I will never forget one of the US generals boarding an American ship in the Arabia Gulf and stating, ‘Iranian people do not deserve to live on this land!’ So why do they want to take their lives away? That’s why we do not agree with them.”
