After Pakistan, Iran Warns Israel of Dangerous Consequences

Published

on

Iran issued a stern warning to Israel for its bombing campaign in Syria. Israel is violating Lebanese and Syrian air space, as well as international law, said the Iranian Foreign Minister. Earlier, Iran has lambasted Pakistan for the killing of 27 IRGC soldiers near the Pakistan-Iran border.

Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif said: “Iran is in Syria at the invitation of the Syrian government, while Israel is violating Lebanese and Syrian air space, as well as international law”.

Responding to the possibility of a military conflict between Iran and Israel, Zarif said he does not see that coming, adding, “but we cannot exclude the possibility.”

During Munich Security Conference, Zarif had accused Israel of looking for war and warned that its actions and those of the United States were increasing the possibilities of a clash in the region. In an interaction with media, Zarif also warned the US and its allies that it would be “suicidal” to go to war with Iran.

The Iranian foreign minister emphasised saying, “I’m not saying [US] President [Donald] Trump’s administration, I’m saying people in President Trump’s administration are trying to create the same eventually and I believe they will fail”.

“But I think at the end of the day, some sense will prevail and people will find out that it’s suicidal to engage in a war with Iran”, added the foreign minister.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a short video recorded on the sidelines of an anti-Iran meeting in Poland on February 13, that the event “is an open meeting with representatives of leading Arab countries that are sitting down together with Israel in order to advance the common interest of war with Iran.”

Netanyahu said in an address to Israeli military cadets, “Trump is acting against Iran at the economic level and we here in Israel are acting against Iran at the military level”. By military actions, Netanyahu clearly meant airstrikes against what Israel calls Iranian positions in Syria. Damascus says the attacks are part of Israel’s efforts to prop up terrorists in the face of army advances.

Prime Minister of Israel said that over the past several years, the Tel Aviv regime’s forces have carried out hundreds of attacks in Syria and will intensify its fight following the planned withdrawal of US troops from the country. His comments came after Trump said “Iran is no longer the same country. Iran is pulling people out of Syria. They can do what they want there, frankly, but they’re pulling people out. They’re pulling people out of Yemen. Iran wants to survive now.”

The advisory military assistance by Iran is being offered to the Syrian government in its counter-terrorism battle at the request of Damascus. Since 2011, the US, Israel, France, Britain and their regional allies such as Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Turkey, and Qatar, instead, have been assisting terrorists in Syria which has left the Arab country in ruins.
