Drones, missile attack legitimate responese against Israel – Iran


Iran has said its attack on Israel was a “legitimate response” to Israel’s airstrike on the Iranian consulate in Syria.


An Israeli airstrike on Iran’s embassy in the Syrian capital of Damascus had killed two senior members of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.


In retaliation, Iran had sent a barrage of drones and missiles towards Israel on Saturday but they were intercepted.


However, the spokesperson of Iran’s Foreign Ministry, Nasser Kanani, said Iran “does not seek to escalate tensions in the region.”


According to Kanani: “Iran’s action was completely legitimate and in accordance with the United Nations Charter granting states the right to self-defense.”


He added that the United States and the international community at large should “appreciate” Iran’s “responsible behavior.”
