BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – The top aide for Iran’s Supreme Leader, ‘Ali Akbar Velayati, accused the U.S. on Friday of creating the Islamic State (ISIS) and Jabhat Al-Nusra terrorist groups.
Velayati then blasted the U.S. for occupying Syrian territory without Damascus’ approval.
The Iranian aide said that if the U.S. wants to remain inside Syria, they should know that it will be another Vietnam for them.
“They should know that Syria and the Eastern Euphrates will be another Vietnam for the US,” he added.
These comments by Velayati come just days after Iran accused the U.S. Coalition of bombing the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Iraqi paramilitary forces in southeast Syria.
