The Foreign Ministry expresses its condemnation over the targeting of the Iranian diplomatic mission in Syria’s capital, Damascus by the Israeli occupation forces on Monday, April 1, 2024.

The Ministry stresses that this attack represents a clear and flagrant violation of international law and the sovereignty of Syria, and warns of the danger of compromising the security of diplomatic missions that have diplomatic immunity under international laws. The expansion of violence in the region will lead to more chaos and instability.

The Ministry once again calls on the international community to take urgent action to stop the killing and destruction in the Gaza Strip and the continued targeting of Syrian territory.
