Saudi Arabia, Persian Gulf Arab monarchies, Israel and factions within the United States and NATO have been behind the rise of Daesh Takfiri terrorists in Iraq, says an expert.

“We’ve seen the attempts to take Iraq apart failed,” but it seems that the West is not ready to let Syria be free of terrorism yet, Gordon Duff told Press TV on Tuesday.

The Daesh experiment in Iraq has showed “the idea that the Western intelligence agencies combined with Saudi Arabia and Israel could build a terror organization that could be powerful” in pushing forward the alliance’s policies has failed, the senior editor of the Veterans Today said.
