Iran strongly deplored the Israeli airstrikes on Syrian territories, calling on the UN to condemn it and take serious action to prevent repetition of such aggression.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi underlined on Saturday the 18th of March 2017 that the Zionists’ attacks against the Syrian territories indicate that Israel’s interests are met by strengthening the Takfiri-Zionist terrorists. The Iranian official warned of the consequences of any repetition of such provocative measures, and asked the UN to deplore them and do its best to prevent repetition of such acts which are against peace and security.
