    A senior Iraqi legislator revealed that Israel's Golani Infantry Brigade has trained the commanders of the ISIL terrorist group in the Sinai for sabotage operations in Egypt.

    The Islamic State deployed several brigades in the Sinai, whose commanders were trained by Israeli Golani Brigade and are now operating against Egypt said Wahhab al-Tayee, rapporteur of al-Sadeqoun parliamentary faction in Iraq.

    He told FNA that ISIL is nearing complete destruction in Iraq and Syria, and "it has been transferred to Egypt under the name of Daames (the Islamic State in Egypt and Sudan)."

    He further added that the serial killing of Egyptian militaries in the Sinai region proves the authenticity of this claim.

    In similar remarks Iranian Supreme Leader's senior adviser, Ali Akbar Velayati, emphasized that the ISIL was created by the West and Israel to follow their interests in the region.

    "ISIL has actually been created by the western colonial powers and the Zionists because whatever this terrorist group does runs counter to Islam and the rules of all Islamic sects," Velayati said.

    He said the Israeli government could use the destruction of Muslim holy sites by ISIL as a justification for the demolition of the Al-Aqsa mosque.

    Back in December, the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said that the Islamic State was serving the US and Israel's interests.

    He underlined an example for showing that the ISIL was serving the US, Britain and the Zionist regime as it was seen that its jihadists didn’t even show a slight opposition to the Zionist rule and even collaborated with the Zionists in fighting the Muslims.

    He stressed that the so-called US-led anti-ISIL coalition was nothing but a lie, and said the US airdrops of military equipment and weapons for the ISIL shows the real picture.

    He also stressed that the Muslim Ulema are responsible in the current situation, and said that they should create a scientific, logical and prevalent campaign to uproot the Islamic State.
