Coalition Condemns Iran Bombing, Says Iran Seeking to Reach Warm Waters & Extend Its Influence

Officials in the Syrian Coalition condemned the Iranian bombings on Deir Ezzor province, stressing that this act is intended to serve Tehran’s plans to extend its influence to the Mediterranean.

Iran bombing of Deir Ezzor province has spelled out “new developments” in the Syria, said Oqab Yahya, member of the Coalition’s political committee. He added that this act “raises questions about Iran’s role in the war on terror.” Yahya also said that Iran bears primary responsibility for the daily terrorist practices against the Syrian people.

Yahya pointed out “the responsibility to fight ISIS in Syria is supposed to rest with the international anti-ISIS coalition,” Yahya said, adding that there are questions to be answered by the international coalition forces about Iran’s bombing of Deir Ezzor.

Likewise, member of the Coalition’s political committee Muhammad Dandal said that Iran’s firing of ballistic missiles on Deir Ezzor province serves its goals to link Tehran to Damascus through Baghdad. He pointed out that Tehran’s mullah regime is seeking to silently take control of Deir Ezzor through the militias it funds in Iraq and Syria.

Dandal stressed the need for action by Arab countries, especially by the Gulf countries, to stand against Iran’s expansionist, sectarian project, warning of the dangers of Iranian plans to take control of new areas where it previously had no role, such as Mosul, Anbar and Deir Ezzor.
