Israel will ‘regret’ its actions if it crosses ‘red lines’ in Syria, senior Iranian official warns
Continued Israeli “aggression” in Syria shall be met with the “toughest” response, a senior Iranian diplomat instructed Sputnik information company. Damascus had earlier accused the Israel Protection Forces of conducting airstrikes on Syrian soil.
Ali Asghar Khaji, Overseas Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s senior aide for particular political affairs, blasted Israel for its “aggressive and hostile” insurance policies in Syria, in an interview revealed by Sputnik on Sunday.
“While the Syrian government is fighting terrorists, Israel supports them,” he stated.
Our presence in Syria is geared toward combating ISIS [Islamic State] and different terrorist teams, but when Israel needs to cross the ‘red lines,’ it would face the hardest response, which can make them remorse their actions.
Ashgar stated that Iranian forces are working in Syria on the request of the nation’s authorities and haven’t been requested to depart. However, those that are occupying elements of Syria illegally should withdraw, he stated.
Syrian officers have been demanding that US and Turkish troops, which have been by no means licensed or invited to function within the nation, go away the border areas they occupy.
Syrian state media reported an Israeli air raid in January, and extra airstrikes earlier this month. The IDF didn’t touch upon the latest experiences, and it not often confirms bombing raids in international states.
Nonetheless, Tel Aviv has acknowledged previously that it had repeatedly hit Iranian-linked targets in Syria, claiming this was in retaliation for terrorist assaults in opposition to Israel. Syria considers such incursions as violations of its sovereignty.
Syria’s SANA information company reported final month that Damascus had penned a letter urging the UN Safety Council to sentence Israeli air raids on its territory.
