Attacking Iran’s consulate escape forward strategy for Israel

TEHRAN, Apr. 03 (MNA) – The official spokesman of the Islamic Resistance Movement of al-Nujaba has described Israeli attacks on Iran’s consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus as an escape forward strategy.

In an interview with Mehr News Agency on Tuesday, Hussain al-Mousavi emphasized that by attacking the Iranian consulate building in Syria, the Zionist regime is trying to escape from political, economic, and military failures against Palestinians.

While strongly condemning the terrorist act of the attack on the Iranian consulate in Damascus and the martyrdom of a group of Iranian advisers and diplomats in this barbaric act, al-Mousavi urged Iran's right to respond to this crime.

He said that such terrorist acts are in line with the series of crimes committed by the American-Zionist arrogant forces by attacking the sovereignty of Syria and Iran, which will exacerbate dangerous tensions throughout the region.

In terms of the resolutions and decisions of international law, it has been clearly stated that any action or attack on the embassies and consulates of another country is prohibited and constitutes a crime, he underlined.

The Zionist regime is seeking to restore its lost honor in the war with the Palestinians, he said, adding that such criminal action is undoubtedly in line with preserving the lost honor of the terrorist Zionist regime, which has so far failed to achieve any of its expansionist plans, and in fact constitutes a cover for its crimes against the Palestinian nation and the whole of humanity.

The Zionist regime is trying to choose a scape-forward strategy by committing such crimes to get rid of political-economic problems, and military failures to manage the war with the Palestinians and the international community, he said.

Undoubtedly, the Islamic Republic of Iran has the right to respond to this terrorist act at the appropriate time and place, he said, noting that it is Iran's definite right to teach the Zionist regime a hard lesson and continue to support the Palestinian issue, which is the central issue of the Islamic Ummah.

The Israeli regime attacked Iran's consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus on Monday evening. The Israeli aggression led to the destruction of the entire building and the martyrdom and injury of the entire people inside it.
