IS supports Iranian anti-government protests

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – The Islamic State group has declared support for the anti-government protests in Iran.

 

In its latest weekly publication, Al Nabaa, the extremists describe the protests as a "revolution against the regime" and an uprising against Wilayat al-Faqih, or Iran's system of governance by clerics.

 

Friday's statement also says the messages sent through the protesters to their rulers are "highly important" and that they should continue.
