Military Official Deplores Washington's All-Out Support for Zionists

TEHRAN (FNA)- An Iranian Armed Forces official strongly blasted Washington's blind support for Israel and Britain, specially the US soft stance on the discovery of British explosive vests in Afghanistan.

"The US administration has acted in a way that Zionists and Britons are treating the US as their hunting dog," the military official said on Sunday.

The official pointed to the British officer who was arrested carrying 50 explosive vests in Kabul, and stated, "The US, as leader of the NATO which is in charge of Afghanistan's occupation, showed a weak attitude towards the discovery of the 50 British explosive vests, the devastating impacts of which are no less than the Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs)."

The remarks by the official came after Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi said that Britain and Israel are main producers of explosive vests, and said that London and Tel Aviv are hiding their criminal nature by sponsoring extremist elements.

"Muslims and the whole world must know that explosive vests require complex technology and are exclusively produced by the Zionists and the Britons," he said on Friday.

The British and Israeli leaders are trying to hide their criminal nature, after years of using weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) against other nations, by hiring extremist groups to use such deadly weapons, Firouzabadi noted.

He said that these explosive vests which were produced by the West and the Zionists are more dangerous than WMDs.
