  •  Iran to Zionist entity: Don’t you dare take foolish measures against our interests in Syria

Iran has warned the illegal Zionist entity against any act of aggression targeting its interests in Syria and the region, saying it will not hesitate to give a crushing response to any “foolish” act by the Tel Aviv regime.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran will give a crushing response to any act of aggression or foolish move by the regime against our country’s interests in Syria and the region, which will make them regret [their measure],” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi said on Wednesday, Press TV reported.

Mousavi said that Iran has been present in Syria upon an invitation by and based on an agreement with the Damascus government with the aim of combating US and Israel-backed terrorism, noting that the country will not back down when it comes to “safeguarding its national security and regional interests.”

He said that the Zionist entity is characterized over the past 70 years as a terrorist regime that has occupied the Palestinian land and parts of regional countries and pursued massacre, terrorism and acts of aggression.

He stressed that Iran will take Israel’s threats and bellicose remarks to international circles.
