Special Aide to Majlis on International Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian in a meeting with Ambassador of Norway to Tehran Sigvald Tomin Hauge said recent U.S. Administration bombardment in Abu Kamal in Syria and martyrdom of anti-terrorist fighters is a green light to the IS forces and the escalation of insecurity.

He went on to say that the U.S. policy in assassinating the international commanders of a fight with terrorism Martyr Qasem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis deteriorated the situation in the region and recent Biden’s decision on bombardment in Abu Kamal and martyrdom of anti-terrorist fighters is a green light to the IS forces and intensifier and intensifies the insecurity.
