1) Who created ISIS?
The issue of ISIS and other terrorists, who have spread throughout the region using the name of Islam, is not an ordinary and natural issue; rather, these terrorists have been created and are supported by other elements.

Ayatollah Khamenei, Apr 9, 2017
The U.S. and its client regimes, in the region [Western Asia], do not seek to eradicate and destroy ISIS: ISIS was created with their support and their money; and, they prefer to maintain--in Iraq--an ISIS which they can carry in the palm of their hands.
