Intelligence Operation in Support of Terrorism: The U.S. and Israel are behind both Boko Haram and ISIS: President of Sudan

Sudan President, Omar al-Bashir has alleged that the American and Israeli intelligence agencies are responsible for Boko Haram and Islamic State (ISIS) insurgency in Africa.

According to him, the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and Israel’s national intelligence institute, Mossad are behind Boko Haram and ISIS attacks in Africa.

Speaking to Euronews in an interview, al-Bashir said no Muslim could do what the sects does, suggesting that it was the intention of US and Israel to increase enmity against Islam.

“I said CIA and the Mossad stand behind these organisations; there is no Muslim who would carry out such acts,” he said.

The 25-year-long ruler of Sudan advised that the battle against ISIS and Boko Haram should not be confronted with military power alone, but also with ideological conversion of the radicals.

“Our policy has been largely successful; after we arrest these young people, we bring a group of young scholars to engage in dialogue with them about their thoughts, and we succeed to bring a lot of them back from their radical ideas,” he said.

Earlier, Lebanon’s Hezbollah group had also claimed that CIA and Mossad were behind the terrorist sects in Nigeria, Syria and Iraq.

The 71-year-old also spoke as regards the Human Rights Watch (HRW) that 200 women were raped and abused in Sudan, stating that the claims were “opposition-run and Israel funded.”

Al-Bashir took over power in June 1989 and has since ruled the north-eastern African country as its seventh president.
