Iran’s president says Israel’s Syria strike ‘will not go unanswered’

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi condemned the Israeli strike on his country’s consulate in Damascus, Syria, saying the “cowardly crime will not go unanswered”.

“The Zionists must know that they will not achieve their goals,” he said.

Earlier today, Iran vowed to respond to the strike that killed two Iranian generals and five other officers. One of the generals was Mohammad Reza Zahedi, who reportedly led the country’s elite Quds force in Lebanon and Syria until 2016.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that Israel “will be punished at the hands of our brave men” for its deadly strike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus, Syria.

“We will make the Zionists regret the crime of attacking the Iranian consulate in Damascus and others like it, with God’s help and strength,” he said.

Iran’s Lebanese proxy, Hezbollah, also said in a statement that “this crime will certainly not pass without the enemy receiving punishment and revenge”.
