Iran vows revenge on Israel after Damascus consulate attack – POLITICO – Latest International Breaking News Today

Israel has so far not commented on Iran’s allegations.

Israeli forces have repeatedly carried out airstrikes against Iranian targets in Syria and Iran-backed Hezbollah militias in Lebanon since the start of its war against Tehran’s ally, Hamas, in Gaza after Palestinian militants killed 1,200 people and took hundreds of others hostage in a deadly attack on Oct. 7 last year.

On Monday, Iranian Ambassador to the U.N. Zahra Ershadi called on the U.N. Security Council to hold an emergency meeting, urging the body to condemn “this unjustified criminal act and terrorist act perpetrated by the Israel regime in the strongest terms possible,” according to the U.S. public broadcaster VOA. An open U.N Security Council briefing regarding the matter is scheduled later Tuesday according to Dmitry Polyansky, a Russian U.N. representative.

According to Iranian state media, several diplomats were also killed, although the ambassador, Hossein Akbari, is reported to be unharmed.
