Key Words: Iran’s president declares that ISIS is finished in Syria

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has written an obituary for the Islamic State, declaring the terror group has been rooted out of Syria.

Rouhani offered the following line on Tuesday, according to his official website:

‘I thank all warriors of Islam, our diplomats, the government and the nation, as well as the supreme leader of the Islamic Revolution, armed forces and the Iraqi and Syrian nation for their efforts to put an end to a group that did not bring anything for us but evil, misery, destruction, murder and savagery.’

His comments come about a month after Islamic State’s de facto capital of Raqqa, Syria, was captured, wrenching away the militant group’s last major urban stronghold in the Middle East. Raqqa once had been synonymous with the reign of terror the extremists meted out across their self-declared caliphate, which spanned the size of Belgium at its height in 2014.

The Iranian leader’s remarks also follow last month’s terror attack in New York City that killed eight people and had links to Islamic State. Authorities say the suspect in the attack was inspired by ISIS videos and asked if he could display an ISIS flag in his hospital room.

On Tuesday, Rouhani also talked up a meeting with his counterparts from two other countries.

“Tomorrow, the presidents of Iran, Turkey and Russia will meet in a tripartite summit to discuss the future of Syria and the region,” he said.
