Iran has issued a stern warning to Israel following an air strike that resulted in the tragic deaths of seven Revolutionary Guards, including two generals, at its consular annex in Damascus. The strike, which also claimed the lives of four other individuals, destroyed the five-story building adjacent to the Iranian embassy, escalating tensions in the region amidst the ongoing Gaza conflict.

Israel has refrained from commenting on the strike, intensifying the already heightened tensions in the Middle East due to the Gaza war between Israel and Iran’s ally, Hamas. Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has vowed to hold Israel accountable for its actions, stating, “The evil Zionist regime will be punished by our brave men. We will ensure they regret this heinous act and others.”

President Ebrahim Raisi of Iran condemned the attack as a blatant violation of international regulations that demands a response. Raisi emphasized that the Israeli regime’s resort to blind assassinations reflects its desperation in the face of repeated defeats against the Resistance Front fighters.

The United Nations Security Council is scheduled to address the strike in a meeting requested by Russia, a key ally of Syria. The strike resulted in the loss of seven Revolutionary Guards, including Brigadier Generals Mohammad Reza Zahedi and Mohammad Hadi Haji Rahimi, both prominent figures within Iran’s Quds Force foreign operations arm.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that the strike claimed the lives of “eight Iranians, two Syrians, and one Lebanese – all identified as fighters.” The repercussions of this attack are reverberating across the region, with Iran’s ambassador to Syria poised to address the aftermath of this tragic event.
