Amid news of Israeli adventurism targeting Iranian interests in Syria, the Foreign Ministry warned on Sunday that Iran will deliver a “crushing response” to any party seeking to trouble the Islamic Republic’s presence in the Arab country.
In remarks during a press briefing that was held via a video conference, Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh refused to verify media reports alleging Israeli strikes against the Iranian targets or confirm any Iranian casualties, but asserted, “Iran has never compromised with anyone over [the issue of] its national security.”
“Anyone, who could try to obstruct Iran’s advisory presence in Syria will be served with a crushing response,” the official added. The Israeli regime, he said, “knows this that the era of hitting and running is far over. It [therefore] treads carefully.”
However, Tel Aviv’s aggressive attitude is “irremediable” and can only be confronted with comprehensive resistance on every front where it seeks to create disturbances, Khatibzadeh said.
