Tehran holds Israel responsible for the consequences of the attack on the Iranian consulate in Damascus, Iran’s state media reported, citing statements made by Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian in a telephone conversation with his Syrian counterpart.

The strike on Iran’s consulate constitutes a “violation of all international treaties,” Amir-Abdollahian said, calling for a “serious response” from the international community.

According to the ministry’s statement, in this phone call Amir-Abdollahian said that Tehran considers the attack on the Iranian embassy annex “a violation of all obligations and international treaties, made the Zionist regime responsible for the consequences and underlined the need for a serious response on the part of the international community to such criminal acts”.

Iran’s ambassador to Damascus, Hossein Akbari, assured that his country “will respond decisively” to the strike that killed at least five members of the Revolutionary Guards.

The flattened building was hit “by F-35 fighters and six missiles,” Akbari told reporters. Among the victims was a commander of the Konts Force, the special forces of the Revolutionary Guards.
