‘All Israeli Diplomatic Missions Legitimate Targets’

TEHRAN -- A veteran Iranian journalist says Israel’s diplomatic missions across the world are legitimate targets for Iran following the occupying regime’s attack on Iran’s consulate in Damascus on Monday.
“The Zionist regime has launched a military attack on the Iranian consulate in a third country, contrary to the well-known international law. Therefore, based on the principle of ‘retaliation’, attacking the fake Israeli regime’s embassies and consulates in any other countries is the Islamic Republic of Iran’s absolute right,” Hussein Shariatmadari wrote on Tuesday.
The managing director the Kayhan Groups of Newspapers also slammed the United Nations, saying “it should firstly, recognize the Vienna Convention and secondly, respect the well-known principle of retaliation in international law and support Iran’s attack on the fake Israeli regime’s diplomatic centers.”
The Zionist regime fired six missiles from the occupied Golan Heights at Iran’s Consulate General in Damascus on Monday evening, martyring seven Iranian military advisors and commanders affiliated with the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)’s Quds Force.
