The angry statements by Head of Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Qassem Soleimani to take hostile actions against ISIS terrro group aroused cynical reactions. Qassemi's statemnets came after ISIS captured and executed IRGC terrroist Mohsen Hajji in Syria.
In a condolence message to Hajji's family, Commander of the Quds Force said "IRGC will take revenge for the martyr", adding "ISIS committed terrible crimes that are unacceptable to any Islamic or human law".


Hajji, 25, was recently executed in the al-Tanf area on the Iraqi-Syrian border.

"The heroes of the Islamic Resistance will take revenge on the perpetrators of this brutal act by eradicating terrorism in the Islamic world," Soleimani claimed in the message carried by Tasnim news agency.


Observers spoke about the value and feasibility of the threats.

They believe that the relationship between ISIS and IRGC is at a critical juncture in the recent period.

They added that both sides had entered a "separation stage" after the attacks on Iran's Shura Council and the Khomeini shrine.


All international intelligence agencies affirmed that the Khomeini tomb incident and the Shura Council were orchestrated by the IRGC to show the world that Tehran was facing terrorist threats.

Experts told the Baghdad Post that Soleimani'S threats may be serious this time because of the "state of separation" existing between ISIS and IRGC.


Weeks ago, IRGC rocket-propelled grenades targeted ISIS positions in the Syrian province of Deir al-Zor with missiles fired from bases in the provinces of Kurdistan and Kermanshah.

The attack was interpreted as a retaliation for attacks on the Iranian parliament and the Khomeini Shrine.

Western investigators say the terrorist bombings would not have taken place in Tehran if Iran had not ended a bizarre truce with the terrorist organization alongwith the ethnic diversity in Iran.

In addition, some believe that there are angry wings in ISIS that decided to attack Iran because of Iranian atrocities and ethnic cleansing agaisnt the Sunnis in Iran.
