Senior cleric urges West to cut support for Takfiri terrorists

Tehran, Aug 12, IRNA – World claimants of freedom, democracy and human rights should be awakened and give up support for Takfiri terrorist groups, a senior Iranian cleric said on Saturday.

Ayatollah Hossein Noori Hamedani made the remarks in reaction to brutal beheading of Mohsen Hojajji, an Iranian military advisor by Daesh (ISIS) in Syria.

'Hojajji's martyrdom marked the borders of humanity, righteousness and the Takfirism and homicide,' he added.

In a reference to foreign interference in Syria and Iraq, the cleric said that 'the nations should be given the opportunity to decide their destiny themselves.'

Meanwhile, Qods Force Commander Major General Qasem Soleimani in reaction to brutal beheading of an Iranian military advisor by Daesh (ISIS) in Syria vowed to clean the region from the terrorist group elements.

Following a US strike against the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (Hashd al-Shaabi), Daesh used the opportunity to attack the Syrian troops deployed in the borders with Iraq in which Mohsen Hojjaji, an Iranian military advisor was taken hostage by the terrorist group elements and beheaded later on camera.
