JNN 22 June 2014 Baghdad : Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki says militants belonging to the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) will turn against their Saudi Arabian and Qatari supporters who call them “revolutionaries.”
Maliki said on Wednesday that the situation in Iraq is due to a conspiracy by certain political factions.
“You hear the Saudi, Qatari and some other Arab media calling them (ISIL terrorists ) revolutionaries and that the Iraqi army is a sectarian force, but they’ve forgotten that they are living in countries brimming with sectarianism and marginalization of minorities,” al-Maliki said, adding, “We tell them and all our friends and Arab brothers to be sure that terrorism will never be limited to the Iraqi borders.”
Meanwhile, he expressed optimism that Iraq would soon weather the ongoing crisis.
Maliki also said army forces will continue their operations against the ISIL Takfiri group until victory is achieved. He expressed gratitude to Iraq’s most senior Shia cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, for encouraging volunteers to join the army and help the government.
More than two million Iraqis have already volunteered to join the fight against the Takfiri militants.
