Iran denounces Israeli airstrikes in Syria

Iran has strongly denounced Israel’s recent airstrikes in Syrian territory.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said that the raids show how Tel Aviv’s interests are intertwined with those of the terrorists operating in Syria.

Qassemi said the Friday Israeli strikes against targets near the central Syria city of Palmyra had taken place “at a time when [the Syrian] army and the anti-terror front have the upper hand against bloodthirsty terrorists, driving them back from cities and villages one after another.”

Qassemi that strikes indicated the overlap of interests between Israel and the terrorists in Syria.

The Iranian diplomat called on the United Nations (UN) to denounce the aggression and use whatever in its power to prevent the repeat of such “acts of violation of peace and security by the aggressive and rogue Zionist regime (Israel).”

Israel has been contributing to the terrorist campaign in Syria with the strikes against Hezbollah and the Syrian military.  Israel has been offering medical treatment for the anti-Damascus militants in the Israeli-occupied Syrian territory of Golan Heights.  

It is worthy to mention that Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic has frequently warned the Islamic countries to be vigilant against Israeli atrocities against Palestinians and its occupational and expansionist agenda against Muslim nations across the region.
