Iran condemns Israeli attack on embassy, vows to make regime regret crime

TEHRAN- The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran condemns in the strongest terms the illegitimate Israeli regime’s missile attack on the consular section building of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Damascus on the evening of Monday, April 1, 2024.

Iran condemns Israeli attack on embassy, vows to make regime regret crime

In a statement on Tuesday, the Iranian Foreign Ministry stated that unfortunately, in this targeted attack on a known diplomatic venue, several anti-terrorism military advisors of the Islamic Republic of Iran, all of whom had diplomatic immunity and were present at the iftar program during the holy month of Ramadan in the building in question at the time of the attack, were martyred.
Undoubtedly, this despicable and humiliating attack violates the immunity of diplomatic personnel and premises—notably the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Damascus—and clearly violates international regulations, including the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, the 1973 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Crimes against Internationally Protected Persons, Including Diplomatic Agents, and the United Nations Charter. Hence, it is expected that governments and international bodies will express resentment against and strongly condemn this heinous act of aggression and violation of international law.
In this regard, it is expected that the United Nations, especially the UN Security Council and the Secretary-General of the world body, will give a prompt and necessary reaction to confront the illegal actions and violations of international regulations by the Zionist regime of Israel, which are deemed a threat to international peace and security. They are also expected to condemn and express resentment against such criminal and terrorist activities.
This terrorist attack demonstrates the desperation, helplessness, and strategic disorientation of the Zionist regime as a result of its military, political, and moral failures in the Gaza Strip after six months of a cruel, criminal war, which failed to achieve any victory against the resistance movements as well as the patient and resilient Palestinian nation.
It is clear that the Zionists, having failed to bring an end to the prowess exhibited by the resistance in the Gaza Strip, are now resorting to desperate and humiliating attempts to bug out of their political and international isolation.
Now, after the massacre of tens of thousands of Palestinian women, children, and innocent civilians, and the failure to achieve its stated objectives in relation to both the Palestinian nation and resistance movements, the Israeli regime is dangerously and unwisely attempting to expand the domain of war in the region and disrupt peace, making regional and international security a victim of its evil and warlike desires.
The Islamic Republic of Iran will forcefully and wisely make the aggressor and lame-duck Zionist regime regret its latest crime. This illegitimate regime will never escape the inevitable defeat by resorting to such heinous crimes.
Simultaneously, while warning the international community about the adventurous activities of the fake Israeli regime to expand the scope of the war beyond the occupied Palestinian territories, the Islamic Republic of Iran holds the usurping Zionist regime responsible for the consequences and repercussions of the criminal attack launched on its diplomatic mission in Damascus.
In this context, the Islamic Republic of Iran reserves its legitimate and inherent right, on the strength of international laws and the United Nations Charter, to respond decisively to such terrorist acts.
The criminal leaders of the usurping Zionist regime must understand that such humiliating attacks will not compensate for the irreparable failure of the regime during the Al-Aqsa storm operation and the heroic steadfastness of the oppressed but powerful Palestinian nation in the Gaza Strip over the last six months. The Islamic Republic of Iran will steadfastly support the natural rights and legitimacy of the Palestinian nation, and shall never retreat one bit.
