TEHRAN (Press Shia) – A high-ranking Iranian military official took a swipe at the US Democratic Party for its fraudulent conduct in the electoral campaign ahead of the US presidential election and distorting the reality about its failed policies toward Iraq and Syria.

Major General Hassan Firouzabadi, senior military adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, said Democrats are fueling conflicts in Iraq and Syria in order to cover up their failed tactics over the past years and portray them as an active policy to deceive American voters.

The democrats, who have been pledging victory against terrorists in Syria and Iraq for years, have turned the tide of war in terrorists’ favor, the senior general deplored.

The top officer also slammed the US for bombing the Syrian Army and voluntary forces in Syria and killing Sunni voluntary forces in Iraq, saying such bloodshed has been misrepresented as counterterrorism efforts ahead of the US presidential election.

Major General Firouzabadi also cautioned the American people against their politicians’ deceitful conducts, stressing that the American taxpayer bears the cost of such acts of violence and bloodshed.

Washington’s belligerent policies are of no benefit to the American people and are adopted by order of the Zionists, who have occupied Palestine, and by Saudi Wahhabists’ provocations, he went on to say.

While the US presidential election of 2016 is scheduled for November 8, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump defend their respective party platforms on Middle East issues.

Clinton has said the US has to “support and maintain the ceasefire in Syria. And we should also work with our coalition partners and opposition forces on the ground to create safe areas where Syrians can remain in the country.”

But on September 17, US-led coalition jets bombed Syrian government forces’ positions near the eastern city of Deir ez-Zor, killing more than 90 troops and paving the way for Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group.

A US military official has said the bombings in Deir ez-Zor were carried out using US intelligence, which was being gathered for days.
