A top Iran official has accused the United States of supporting the Islamic State terrorist group and effectively forming an alliance with the terrorist group, saying he has documents to prove the allegations.
Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mostafa Izadi accused the United States of supporting ISIS, saying Tehran has proof to back the claims.
'We possess documents and information showing the direct supports by the US imperialism for this highly disgusting stream [IS] in the region which has destroyed the Islamic countries and created a wave of massacres and clashes,' Fars News agency quoted Izadi as saying.
Izadi has not yet, however, presented the alleged documents that would prove his claims.

Izadi's claims came after Tehran hit out at Washington and Riyadh as tens of thousands attended the funerals Friday (pictured above) for those slain in the first attacks in Iran claimed by the Islamic State group
The Iranian official said that the alleged American support for ISIS is an instrument of 'proxy warfare in the region' and a 'new trick by the arrogant powers against the Islamic Republic'.
Izadi's claims echoed a statement made by Iran's Parliamentary Speaker Ali Larijani on Friday.
'The United States has aligned itself with the ISIL in the region,' Larijani said.
He made the comments as he addressed a funeral service for victims of Wednesday's terror attacks on the Iranian parliament and the shrine of late Imam Khomeini in Tehran.
Seventeen people were killed in the attack, which saw four armed assailants storm the national parliament building and a suicide bomber blow himself up at the shrine. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks.
Larijani also called regional rival Saudi Arabia 'a tribal state very far from anything like a democracy' during his comments at the funeral service, and denounced US sanctions against Iran over its ballistic missile programme.
Izadi's claims echoed a statement made by Iran's Parliamentary Speaker Ali Larijani (right, during Friday's funeral for the terror victims) on Friday.

The US 'knows that the Revolutionary Guard and its Quds force are the most important regional forces fighting terrorists', Larijani said.
The imposition of such sanctions 'demonstrates their alignment with terrorists in the region', said the speaker, a moderate conservative.
Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said on Friday that the attacks would increase the country's hatred toward the United States and its 'stooges', including Saudi Arabia.
'Such acts will have no other result than to reinforce hatred for the US government and its agents in the region, like the Saudi (government),' Khamenei wrote in a message of condolence.
Tehran hit out at Washington and Riyadh as tens of thousands attended the funerals Friday for those slain in the first attacks in Iran claimed by the Islamic State group.
'Death to America', 'Death to the Saud' ruling family, and 'We are not afraid', shouted the crowd behind a lorry bearing the coffins of 15 of the 17 people killed.
After prayers at Tehran University, a long procession left central Tehran for Behesht-e-Zahra cemetery near the Khomeini mausoleum, 20 kilometres (12 miles) away.
The attacks on two of Iran's most symbolic landmarks were carried out by five armed men, including suicide bombers who blew themselves up.

Although the US military is also fighting IS in Syria, as well as Iraq, President Donald Trump said in response to the attacks in Iran that the country is reaping what it sows
The intelligence ministry said they were Iranians who had joined the Islamic State group and travelled to its strongholds in Iraq and Syria before returning home.
Iran is a key fighting force against IS and other groups in Iraq and Syria, and the Sunni jihadists consider Shiite Muslims to be apostates.
Shiites make up roughly 90 percent of Iran's population, but the country also has a sizeable Sunni minority, particularly around its restive borders with Iraq and Pakistan
Although the US military is also fighting IS in Syria, as well as Iraq, President Donald Trump said in response to the attacks in Iran that the country is reaping what it sows.
That drew fire from Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, who tweeted: 'Repugnant WH (White House) statement... as Iranians counter terror backed by US clients.'
Since Trump took office in January, relations between Washington and Tehran have worsened.
Washington has imposed new sanctions on Tehran for its alleged support of 'terrorist' groups in the Middle East, ballistic missile tests and human rights abuses.
On a recent trip to Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia, Trump called on all nations to 'isolate' Iran.
