The US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, accused the Iranian government of allowing Al Qaeda to establish a “new headquarters” for it in Iran.

Speaking to members of the National Association of Journalists, Pompeo said: “Unlike Afghanistan, when Al Qaeda was hiding in the mountains, today Al Qaeda operates under a solid cover protecting the Iranian regime.”

Pompeo did not provide any evidence for his allegations, which Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif described as “war lies.”

And last November, Iran denied the contents of a report about the killing of the second man in Al-Qaeda, Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah, also known as Abu Muhammad Al-Masry, on its soil during the summer, in an operation carried out by Israeli agents, at the request of the United States.
