According to the World News Agency, Iran's leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that United States operations in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria and the aid of terrorists have aroused hatred for America in people's hearts and now for America in Iraq and Syria there is no place.

Khamenei made the remarks in a video-conference meeting with the Iranian students on Sunday.

"These actions include warmongering, helping notorious governments, advocating terrorism, supporting oppression wholeheartedly, and the like".

Iran's supreme leader said Sunday that the United States will be expelled from Iraq and Syria and alleged that even Washington's allies "abhor" it now.

Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif said: "Foolish claims by United States officials is nothing new".

The situation between Iran and the United States nearly escalated into a full conflict after a USA drone strike killed top Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani in Baghdad in January, prompting Tehran to retaliate by firing ballistic missiles at two bases in Iraq hosting U.S. forces.
