Iran vows to respond to the alleged April 9 Israeli airstrike on Syria’s T4 Airbase in which at least 7 Iranian servicemembers were killed.
According to Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen TV channel, the senior adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has warned that the Israeli missile attack “will not remain without a response.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif denounced the Israeli strike on April 10 by saying that “whenever the terrorists face defeats, the Zionist regime launches operations and so do the Americans.”
“The situation of US-backed terrorists is Syria is not good and every day they are suffering new blows. The Zionist regime and the US have in different stages rushed to the scene to boost the morale of terrorists,” Zarif said.
Zarif warned of the repercussions of the “dangerous” policies adopted by Israel and the US and Israel. He noted that “there is authentic intelligence that the US is relocating the Daesh [ISIS] terrorists” to use them in different regions.
“These policies are very dangerous and their outcome will be dangerous for both regional and international peace and security as well as the US itself,” Zarif said.
Asked about an alleged chemicalattack on the Syrian town of Douma last weekend, Zarif noted:
“We think the US government is seeking a pretext for intervention.”
