Iranian Assembly of Experts member Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami said in a Friday, August 18, 2023 sermon in Tehran that was aired on Channel 1 (Iran) that ISIS was created by the United States, that America admits this, that injured ISIS fighters were treated in Tel Aviv and Haifa, and that they were even visited by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He added that the role played by America and Israel in the Shiraz terror attack is evident.

Ahmad Khatami: "ISIS was created by America. This is not something we say, they admit this. During [the presidential] debates, Clinton was asked if the U.S. created ISIS. She has no answer. There was complete silence. When ISIS [fighters] would get injured, they would take them to Tel Aviv, they would take them to Haifa. Netanyahu even went to visit them.

"These are the criminals, and in this crime [the Shiraz attack], we see, without a doubt, the involvement of America and Israel. The involvement of America and Israel is evident."
