TEHRAN (FNA)- Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces General Hassan Firouzabadi called on international legal bodies to prosecute Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the ringleader of the terrorist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), as a war criminal.
“The international legal bodies are duty-bound to prosecute al-Baghdadi similar to criminal Serbian commanders in Bosnia and Herzegovina (war),” Firouzabadi said in Tehran on Saturday.
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi should be prosecuted as a war criminal for killing innocent, defenseless women, children and clerics,” he added.
Firouzabadi warned that the terrorist acts of the ISIL are far more dangerous than al-Qaeda crimes, and said if the world doesn’t take serious action against this group immediately, it should then wait for a human catastrophe.
ISIL is a Takfiri extremist group which has its roots in the insurgency against the US-led invasion on Iraq in 2006, and was later developed to a bigger group in Syria in 2012.
The group is known to be responsible for mass murders and extremist acts of violence across Syria and Iraq.
ISIL leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, who was a detainee at US Bucca prison in 2005, has announced himself as the caliph of the Muslim world.
On Friday, Firouzabadi lashed out at Saudi Arabia for supporting Takfiri terrorist groups in Iraq, and said Riyadh’s support for the ISIL would backfire soon.
“If the ISIL win, they will definitely continue their offensive against Saudi Arabia,” he said.
The Iranian General described ISIL as a brainchild of the US and UK governments, established to get “revolutionary Muslim youths” killed in Syria and Iraq.
Firouzabadi stated that Saudi Arabia has asked the United States to let ISIL militants destroy Iraq.
“This (ISIL) is also a serious threat, even bigger than Israel,” he said.
