 Chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said Washington is transferring its proxy militants from Syria and Iraq to Afghanistan in a bid to justify its continued military build-up in the region.

“Fomenting insecurity and disintegration of countries is the US strategic policy in the Muslim world, specially in confrontation against the Islamic Republic of Iran’s neighbors,” Boroujerdi said on Wednesday.

He referred to the US attempts to hold an independence referendum in the Iraqi Kurdistan region as well as its efforts to form a new army of militants in Northern Syria to provoke the Kurdish population of the country, and said, “After the failure of the ISIL terrorists, the US is now plotting to transfer the ISIL to Afghanistan and organize them.”

“Of course, Afghanistan has a nation which has defeated the superpower of the former Soviet Union and the US and now that the US has ignited a proxy war with the help of the ISIL, they will defeat the US too,” Boroujerdi said.

He said that the US aims to guarantee its presence in the region by supporting the terrorist groups.

In relevant remarks on Tuesday, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei expressed deep regret over the massacre of the Afghan people in the recent terrorist attacks, blaming the US for the tragedies by transferring the ISIL terrorists to Afghanistan to guarantee its presence in the region.

“The US goal of transferring the ISIL terrorists to Afghanistan is justification of its continued deployment in the region and establishment of security for the Zionist regime,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing the Iranian seminaries in Tehran.

“The same hands which used the ISIL as a tool to oppress and commit crimes against the people in Syria and Iraq by its creation, is today after transferring the ISIL to Afghanistan after sustaining defeat in those regions, and the recent massacres are actually the start of this plot,” he added.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that the US-backed terrorists don’t differentiate between the Shiites and Sunnis, and added, “The US wants this region not to see good days and wants the regional governments and nations to be busy with their own affairs so that they don’t think of opposing the evil agent of arrogant powers, that is Zionism.”

He described the United States’ other goal of creation of insecurity as justification of its presence in the region, and said, “The Americans, themselves, are the main cause for insecurity in Afghanistan and the killings in this region since 20 years ago under the name of religion were carried out, directly or indirectly, by the US agents, and they are now after guaranteeing their presence by fomenting insecurity and attaining their political and economic objectives.”

A powerful explosion went off in Afghan capital Kabul on Saturday, leaving many casualties.

The Ministry of Public Health of Afghanistan (MoPH) confirmed that 95 people were killed and 191 others were wounded in Kabul bombing.

MoPH Spokesman Doctor Wahid Majroh told reporters in Kabul on Sunday that the Ministry can confirm the death of 95 people in the attack.

He said at least 191 others were also wounded in the attack which has also caused massive collateral damage to the surrounding properties.

The Taliban terrorist group, which has close ties with the ISIL, claimed responsibility for the deadly attack as well as another  assault on the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul that killed scores of people earlier this month.
