Iran reiterates its military will remain in the region following the deaths of five soldiers in Syria
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said Iranian military advisers will continue their activities in the region even after the deaths of five Revolutionary Guard commanders in Syria in an attack that Tehran blamed on Israel.
“The activities of Iran's military advisers in the fight against terrorism and ensuring the security of the region will continue consistently,” Abdollahian said in a message on the social network X late Saturday.
In addition, the head of Iranian diplomacy accused Israel of being “the main accomplice of terrorists and the main enemy of security in the region.” “Without a doubt, the defeat of the Zionists against the will of the people of Gaza will not be compensated for by cowardly acts of terrorism,” said Abdollahian, referring to the attack in Damascus.
The attack was condemned by Iranian President Ebrahim Raisí, who assured that this terrorist attack would not go unanswered, while the Foreign Ministry assured that Tehran would respond “at the right time and in the right place.” Hours later, a pro-Iranian militia attacked an air base in western Iraq where US troops operate rockets, wounding several American soldiers.
On Tuesday, Iran bombed a so-called “Israeli spy headquarters” in the city of Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, killing several people, including a prominent Kurdish businessman. (EFE)
