The Iranian legislature in a statement issued on Tuesday condemned the beheading of 21 Coptic Egyptians by the ISIL terrorists in Libya, but stressed that those states which have created and supported the terrorist group should account for its crimes as well.

The statement issued by the cleric members of the parliament, deplored the brutal killing of the Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya by the ISIL, and said, “Now, the US and western governments and the regional sheikhdoms (Persian Gulf Arab states) which have created and strengthened the killer group should account for such a genocide.”

“We insist the international human rights organizations to launch investigation with regard to those governments which have played a role in the creation of these terrorists to take proper action against them,” it added.

The statement underlined that the killing of three Muslim students in the US, Christian workers in Libya, Sunni Muslims in Iraq, Izadis in Erbil and Shiites in Pakistan and Yemen are all parts of a purposeful plot by the Zionist regime which has been hatched to stir a global religious war.

The Egyptian Coptic Christians, who had gone to Libya in search of work, were marched to a beach, forced to kneel and then beheaded on video, which was broadcast on Sunday via a website that supports the ISIL.

On Monday, the Iranian foreign ministry strongly deplored the beheading of Egyptian Coptic Christians by ISIL.

“By hurting religious, ethnic and tribal sentiments, the perpetrators of such tragic acts are pursuing ominous goals which serve the interests of the Zionist regime through damaging the relationship among the followers of the great divine religions and destroying ties among the Muslim states,” Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham said in a statement.

She further underlined the necessity and vital importance of full vigilance at all levels against the plots and suspicious moves and the dangerous consequences of the growth of extremism and terrorism in the region.

Afkham also extended her condolences to the bereaved families of the victims and the Egyptian nation and government.
