The attack destroyed an Iranian building in Damascus on Monday (1st). According to Iranian state media, the bombing by Israeli military planes killed Mohammad Reza Zahedi, senior commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, and six other people.

According to Tasnim, President Raisi released a statement this Tuesday condemning the attack and classifying the case as an “aggressive and desperate action”.

The president also stated that the Israeli action violates international rules. Despite stating that the attack will not go unanswered, the Iranian government did not say what measures will be taken.

Hossein Akbari, Iran’s ambassador to Syria, said the consulate was hit by six missiles fired from F-35 fighter jets. Akbari, who lived in an embassy annex and had his home hit, escaped unharmed and said Iran’s response would be harsh.

The newspaper “The New York Times” stated that it spoke to four Israeli officials, who confirmed that the country actually carried out the attack.

An Israeli military spokesman said he would not comment on reports in foreign media.
