“The recent deadly attack staged by ISIS terrorists against Iranian people may be American President Donald Trump’s “strategy,” pointed out US Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, Press TV reported.
The congressman, 69, who is a member of the US House of Representatives representing California’s 48th congressional district, made the provocative remarks on Thursday, during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement.
Rohrabacher highlighted he believes that the terror attacks were conducted by “Sunni forces,” which he said had to be provoked to stage attacks in Iran.
“Isn’t it a good thing for us to have the United States finally backing up Sunnis who will attack Hezbollah and the Shia threat? Isn’t that a good thing?” he asked, adding that the attacks could be “a signal, a ratcheting up of certain commitments by the US” against Iran.
On Wednesday, gunmen stormed Iran’s Parliament (Majlis) and the Mausoleum of the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, causing the death of at least 17 people and injuring nearly 50 others.
