Iran says will not hesitate to defend Iraq holy sites

Published: 06.18.14, 10:55 / Israel News

Iran will not hesitate to defend Shiite Muslim holy sites in neighboring Iraq against "killers and terrorists", Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday, following rapid advances by Sunni militants there over the past week.

 

Speaking on live television, Rouhani said many people had signed up to go to Iraq to defend the sites and "put the terrorists in their place". He added that veteran fighters from Iraq's Sunni, Shiite and Kurdish communities were also "ready for sacrifice" against these militant forces. (Reuters)
