The Takfiri militants from the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) pose a threat to the unity and security of the Middle East region, a political analyst tells Press TV.

“The situation in Iraq is very dangerous… This terrorism organization (ISIL)…became out of control of the countries and everybody

knows who are the countries who did support them [ISIL militants] and America is aware of this. Now they are out of control; they threatened the unity and the security in the whole region,” Hisham Jaber, the director of Center for Middle East Studies and Public Relations, said in an interview with Press TV.

He added that the United States has been aware of the ISIL activities for six months but refused to provide the Iraqi government with serious help in any way.

“America did destroy the Iraqi army for ten years and did not allow Iraq to build up an army… And now, for one week, we have to agree and recognize that the Iraqi army did make success on the field but I call it tactical success not strategic success,” the commentator pointed out.

Jaber believed that it is really “strange” that Saudi Arabia asks Iran not to interfere in Iraq, stressing that Tehran must protect Baghdad due to their historical, geographical and demographical common interests.

The Islamic Republic “must in my opinion… protect the Iraqis and this is the role expected from the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he said.

The analyst once again reaffirmed the importance of supporting the Iraqi government and nation as the only solution to the “critical and dangerous” situation in Iran.

On June 10, Takfiri militants from the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) took control of Iraq’s Nineveh provincial capital, Mosul. They later took control of the city of Tikrit, located about 140 kilometers (87 miles) northwest of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

Iraqi army and volunteer forces have been engaged in heavy fighting with the militants in different fronts ever since.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has blamed Saudi Arabia and Qatar for the security crisis and growing terrorism in his country.
