General Qassem Soleimani of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has said that ISIS will completely collapse within the next two months, the IRIB reported on Thursday.

“Iran, Russia, Syria, and Iraq should hold this celebration,” said the general at a ceremony held in memory of an Iranian military adviser martyred in Syria.

He also said the United States “has made no move to eradicate” ISIS.

“How can an administration, which created Daesh [ISIS] itself, claim to have played a noticeable role in fighting the outfit?” asked Soleimani. 

“The US’s defeat in the region is rooted in the lack of a wise leadership and having ignorant rulers,” he continued.

Soleimani also explained why Iran is helping Syria in its struggle against terrorism stating: “We could not sit around to see Iraq and Syria fall, and then they reach us.”
