Iran Condemns Israeli Raid on Syria

Iran Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has condemned Israel’s strike on Syria.

“Undoubtedly, this blatant violation is in line with the policy of the West and the Zionists (Israel) to deflect [the world's] attention from the achievements of the Syrian nation and government in maintaining sovereignty and restoring stability and security to the country,” Salehi said on Thursday.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, Israel launched airstrike inside Syria, targeting a military research facility in Jamraya, a Damascus subur, and a truck convoy reportedly containing Russian-made SA-17 anti-aircraft missiles bound for Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Meanwhile, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian warned that Israel would face “serious consequences” for the attack. Abdollahian did not elaborate what consequences Israel might be facing. (Fars News Agency, 31 January)

The Russians are particularly upset, using stronger words than the UN or the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Like I said in the previous post on this subject, the Israeli airstrike has provided the Syrian regime with a gift, and they're playing it up big, domestically.
