(IraqiNews.com) Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah said that Mecca and Medina are the main targets of ISIS, not Jerusalem, pointing out that its caliphate cannot prevail without the Two Holy Mosques, and that the Iraqis had prevented the terrorist group from accessing the Gulf.
Nasrallah said in a speech in the anniversary of the ‘Martyrs Leaders’ reported by IraqiNews.com, “The whole world acknowledged that ISIS has become a threat to the security of the region and the world. It is only Israel that does not consider it a threat,” pointing out that, “ISIS and other terrorist organizations do whatever serves the power of Israel and United States.”
“The murder of the Jordanian pilot Moaz Kasasbeh is horrid, and the beheading of the Egyptian Christians in Libya is shameful and horrible,” he added, warning that, “ISIS will open new fronts.”
Nasrallah also stated that the ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was appointed a Prince of Mecca and Medina, because ISIS succession cannot hold without the Two Holy Mosques, pointing out that the main ISIS target is not Jerusalem, but Mecca and Medina.
Nasrallah said that the Iraqis prevented ISIS from reaching Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, and added, “We must approach the situation in Iraq in a different way and instead of feeding the sectarian strife, let all the sects defend their lands and oil and help eliminate ISIS.”
