Legitimate self-defense, punishing Israel only option

TEHRAN, Apr. 16 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says that resorting to the defensive operation and punishing the Zionist regime was the only option left for Iran, due to the ineffectiveness of the UNSC.

Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks in a telephone conversation with the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday night.

Although the Islamic Republic of Iran was able to carry out the anti-Israeli operation in a wider scope, it only targeted that part of the military positions of the Zionist regime from where they attacked Iran's consulate in Damascus, the top Iranian diplomat underlined.

The security of the region is very important to Iran, but the Zionist regime has been carrying out massacre and genocide against defenseless children and women in Gaza for six months, and America and its allies will not stop it, Amir-Abdollahian emphasized.

"When will the international community act to end this genocide and crimes?" he asked.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the Iranian foreign minister said that Tehran welcomes the initiative of the Secretary General of the United Nations in achieving sustainable security in the region.

Guterres, for his part, called for continued restraint from the parties involved in regional conflicts.

Yesterday, I once again condemned any attack on diplomatic places and stressed that diplomatic places should be protected, he added.

We advise Tel Aviv to refrain from committing fresh aggression against the Islamic Republic, Guterres stressed, expressing delight for Iran’s current decision on not taking additional measures against the occupying regime if the Zionists do not commit any fresh aggression against it.

In response to the Israeli terrorist attack on Iran's consulate building in Syria on April 1, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps attacked targets in occupied Palestine with dozens of drones and missiles early on Sunday.

The Israeli regime attacked Iran's consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus on April 1. The Israeli aggression led to the destruction of the entire building and the martyrdom and injury of the entire people inside it.

Seven of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) military advisors were martyred following the Israeli attack on Iran's consulate in Damascus.
