General Qassem Suleimani, commander of the Quds Force and perhaps Iran's most prominent figure in supporting the war against Daesh in Iraq and Syria, stated that the Islamist militants are "nearing the end of their lives," reports AFP.
The prominent commander is often photographed and featured on social media with pro-Iraqi government forces, including Kurdish and Shiite militias.
"Considering the heavy defeats suffered by Daesh and other terrorist groups in Iraq and Syria, we are certain these groups are nearing the end of their lives," Suleimani was quoted as saying.
Daesh has taken control of large parts of Iraq and Syria, despite efforts by the US-led coalition to decrease the militants' military capacity.
