Iran says retaliation ‘concluded,’ warns Israel not to respond

Iran

TEHRAN, APR 14 (AFP/APP/DNA): Iran on Sunday urged Israel not to retaliate militarily to the attack, which Tehran presented as a justified response to a strike that destroyed its consulate building in Damascus earlier this month.

“The matter can be deemed concluded,” Iran’s mission to the United Nations said in a post on X just a few hours after the start of the operation late Saturday.

“However, should the Israeli regime make another mistake, Iran’s response will be considerably more severe,” the Iranian mission warned.

Late Saturday, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps announced that they had launched “dozens of drones and missiles” towards military sites on Israeli territory.

“Iran’s military action was in response to the Zionist regime’s aggression against our diplomatic premises in Damascus,” the Iranian mission to the UN said.

The attack, according to the mission, was “conducted on the strength of Article 51 of the UN Charter pertaining to the legitimate defense”.

However Israel’s army said it had shot 99 percent of the drones and missiles with the help of the United States and other allies, declaring Iran’s attack “foiled”.
