Iranian FM Hossein Amir-Abdollahian Reveals Tehran's Warning to US Over Planned Strikes on Israel

Iran's top diplomat, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, has revealed that Tehran has informed the United States about its plans to retaliate against Israel for their terrorist attack on Iran's diplomatic premises in Syria. Amir-Abdollahian made these remarks during his visit to New York for a United Nations Security Council session on Palestine.

Iran (IMNA) - He emphasized that Iran's actions are in accordance with international law and its right to self-defense following Israel's attacks on the Iranian embassy in Damascus and the martyrdom of its military advisors.

Amir-Abdollahian also mentioned that Iran has informed the UN Secretary General that the Security Council must take action against Israel's measures. Following Iran's retaliatory operation, dubbed "Operation True Promise," the country conveyed to the US that it does not seek an escalation of tensions in the region. The Iranian foreign minister warned that Israel's behavior could lead to further tensions in the area.

Before the military operation against Israel, Iran informed the US that it had no intention of attacking American bases and interests in the region unless Washington supported Israel's aggression. In a multi-pronged attack, Iran launched hundreds of drones and missiles at occupied territories in response to Israel's aggression on Iranian diplomatic facilities in Damascus on April 1.

Israel's airstrikes on Iran's embassy compound in Damascus resulted in the deaths of two generals of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) and five accompanying officers. Amir-Abdollahian's remarks also highlighted the need for sustainable peace and security in the region during the Security Council meeting. He plans to discuss an immediate end to Israel's war in the Gaza Strip and the dispatch of humanitarian aid to the affected population with the UN chief and other diplomats.

The ongoing conflict in the Gaza Strip, initiated by Israel on October 7, has led to the deaths of over 34,000 women and children.
