US official: Iran, Gaza, ISIS main cause of terror parties

Apr 17,2019

Sales ignored the 12-year-old strict Israeli siege imposed on Gaza, which rendered the coastal enclave into a place unfit for human life.

US Coordinator for Counter-Terrorism Nathan Sales has recently visited Israel, toured areas around the Gaza fence and claimed Iran, Gaza, ISIS are main cause of terror, Ynet News reported on Tuesday.

During his visit, he noted that Iran is the mastermind of terror in the whole region.

Sales hailed US President Donald Trump’s designation of the Iran’s Revolutionary Guards as a terror group.

He warned that as a result of US policy on Iran, “anyone doing business with them will be suspected of funding terror.”

During his tour of the Israel-Gaza fence Sales said: “I was amazed at the resources Hamas is investing in terror activity against Israel.”

Sales ignored the fact that Israel has killed around 280 peaceful Palestinian protesters and wounded more than 16,000 others near the fence since 30 March 2018.

In addition, he ignored the 12-year-old strict Israeli siege imposed on Gaza, which rendered the coastal enclave into a place unfit for human life, according to UN reports.

Hamas, he added, spends a lot of money on “terror” activities at the expense of investing in health, education and housing which are vital for improving civilian lives.
