TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi strongly condemned the recent Israeli attack on Syria, and described it as violation of international laws.

“The airstrikes on T-4 airbase near Syria’s Homs stand in stark violation of all international law and regulations,” Qassemi said Monday.

He underlined that the attacks were conducted by the Israeli regime for supporting terrorist groups in Syria.

Qassemi noted that the move would only complicate further the ongoing crisis in Syria as well as the regional developments.

“In a situation where all field developments are unfolding in the interests of the legitimate government of Syria, such airstrikes by the Zionist regime are undoubtedly aimed at supporting the terrorist groups and diverting the world’s public opinion from the ongoing disaster in Gaza which has left tens of Palestinians dead and thousands of others injured so far,” he was quoted as saying by the official website of Iran foreign ministry.

The spokesman once again expressed Iran’s full support for Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, and called on all freedom-seeking countries and international bodies to break silence on the “blatant aggression” of the Zionist regime against a member of the United Nations.

Such aggressions are definitely endangering the international peace and security, he added.
