Iran has condemned the Israeli air strikes against Syria. The Israeli air force on Friday targeted a building at the Damascus airport that reportedly housed advanced Iranian Fateh 110 surface-to-surface missiles ready to be shipped to the Hezbollah in Lebanon. Today, the Syrian state TV reported another attack early Sunday morning on what it described as Jamraya research center, in northwest Damascus. The location had been targeted by another Israeli airstrike back in January.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said the Israeli attacks create insecurity and instability in the region. (IRNA, 5 May)
