Iran Comes Under Attack As Armenia, Azerbaijan Clash Over Nagorno-Karabakh

Published

As Armenia and Azerbaijan clash over Nagorno-Karabakh region causing hundreds of casualties, Iran, which borders both the nations, has come under attacks. 

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh condemned misfire at his Iran’s border areas and stated that Tehran would not tolerate further rockets into its borders. “Unfortunately, worrying news has been reported on the issue, which is not acceptable at all,” Khatibzadeh said.

“The security of the Iranian citizens living in border areas is the redline for our armed forces and in case of repeated shelling, the Islamic Republic of Iran will not remain indifferent,” he went on to say.

Earlier, Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry announced late Friday that Armenian forces launched rocket attacks on Iranian territory as a provocation. “This act of the sneaky enemy makes us angry and we are sharing the concern of the brotherly Iranian people,” it said.

The ministry said Iran condemned Armenia’s aggressive policy and supported Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity. “Today, we feel the solidarity of the brotherly Iranian people and appreciate the officially declared support of the Iranian government,” it said.

In relevant remarks early this month, the Iranian foreign ministry had repeated the country’s warning to Azerbaijan and Armenia to avoid misfire during military clashes between the two neighbours.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran is seriously and with high sensitivity monitoring the moves at the bordering areas of Iran and declares that any aggression against our country’s territories by any party engaged in the (conflicts in the) region will not be tolerated and we seriously warn all sides to show necessary caring in this regard,” Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said.
