Iranian FM: Sunday Air Raid Indicates Israel’s Weakness
(FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif underlined that the Israeli air raid against Syria which killed a number of Hezbollah members and an Iranian military adviser in Syria was an indicator of the Zionist regime's weakness and desperation.
Zarif said the insane act of the Zionist regime is another proof of its orchestrated collaboration with the Takfiri terrorists.
In a message on the occasion of the martyrdom of an Iranian commander during the recent Zionist regime attack to Syria, he said it also showed the weakness and desperation of the Zionist regime vis a vis the resistance of the regional nations.
The Iranian top diplomat extended his condolences over the martyrdom of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) commander and a number of Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement.
He congratulated Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, the Hezbollah Secretary General Seyed Hassan Nasrallah and families of the martyrs over their martyrdom.
He said the blood of martyrs will bring further dignity to the nations and guarantee their ultimate victory.
In relevant remarks on Wednesday, Zarif strongly condemned Israel's Sunday attack on the Syrian Golan Heights that killed an Iranian military adviser and six Hezbollah members, saying that the raid showed the close cooperation between Israel and the Takfiri terrorists.
"The aggressive act of the Zionist regime in Golan (Heights) is another sign of cooperation between this regime and the Takfiri terrorists," Zarif said in a meeting with Secretary-General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) in Tehran.
The Iranian foreign minister reiterated that Israel's terrorist attack was carried out to aid Takfiri terrorists in Syria following their repeated defeats and retreats in the battle against the Damascus army in recent months.
Jibril, for his part, condemned Israel's attack on the Hezbollah resistance movement in the Golan Heights, and said, "The experience of the resistance movement's victories, including the 22-day (Gaza) and the 33-day (Lebanon) wars, shows that resistance is the only way to fully retrieve the Palestinian nations' rights against the Zionist occupiers."
On Sunday, an Israeli helicopter struck Quneitra in Syria's Golan Heights, killing Iranian military advisor Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi as well as the son of slain Hezbollah top commander Imad Mughniyeh and 5 other Hezbollah members.
Several state and military officials in Tehran as well as the Lebanese movement have vowed a crushing response to the Israeli attack.
On Tuesday, Commander of the IRGC Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari warned Tel Aviv of the devastating response of the regional resistance movements to Israel.
“The IRGC will remain steadfast on the path to the collapse of the Zionist regime of Israel through its continued support for the Lebanese and Palestinian combatants, but this time it supports will be on a scale larger than its supports during the 33-day and 51-day wars against the Israeli army,” General Jafari said in a message released on the occasion of the martyrdom of Allahdadi.
The Iranian top commander said resistance groups in the region would soon give a crushing response to Israel's Sunday raid.
“The Zionists must wait for the devastating thunderbolts of the anti-Israel resistance groups in the region," the Iranian commander warned.
