In remarks released on Friday, Ali Shamkhani denounced recent comments made by some “novice and inexperienced Saudi officials” about the Arab country’s campaign against terrorism and said they are seeking to shirk their responsibility toward its massive supports for Takfiri terrorism.
“Al Salman (the ruling family of Saudi King Salman) has created and is leading the world’s most active terrorist-producing factory in Saudi Arabia,” he noted.
The Iranian official went on to say that the Saudi rulers use petrodollars to support Wahhabi teachings which are based on hate, violence, and crimes.
In recent years, the Middle East region has been plagued with Takfiri terrorist groups like Daesh (also known as ISIS or ISIL), which are believed to have been created and supported by the West and some regional Arab countries.
The terrorist groups, which claim to be Islamic but whose actions are anything but, have been committing heinous crimes not only against non-Muslims but mostly against Muslims in the region.
Iraq and Syria have been gripped by insurgency with various terrorist groups, including Daesh, currently controlling parts of their territories.
In the meantime, Iran has remained a close ally of the countries and supports their legitimate governments in the face of foreign-backed militancy.
