Israel frightened of Iran's response to Syria attack: Envoy

Iranian Ambassador to Syria Hossein Akbari says the Israeli regime is profoundly frightened of the Islamic Republic's retaliation for its attack on Iran's diplomatic premises in Syria.

During a ceremony to mark International Quds Day at the Iranian embassy in Damascus on Friday, Akbari said Iran has requested an extraordinary session of the UN Security Council by filing a complaint over the Israeli attack on the consular section of the embassy on Monday.

"Given the failure of the Security Council to take necessary measures to prevent the recurrence of such heinous crimes by the Zionist regime, Iran reserves the right to respond," he said.

"We warn members of the Security Council and the United Nations not to remain silent in the face of these crimes and to fulfill their obligation in preserving international peace and security," he added.

The ambassador said that after Iran vowed to give a decisive response to the latest aggression, the Israeli regime went into panic mode and began stockpiling generators, food, and medicine in more secure areas.

"This indicates they are deeply frightened of Iran's retaliation," he said.
