Iran, through its U.N. mission in New York, issued a statement that appeared to offer Israel a way to prevent further escalation if Israel deems the conflict “over.”

A statement from the mission posted on social media platform It was in response to the situation,” he said.

“This issue can be considered resolved,” the mission asserted. “But if the Israeli regime makes a mistake again, Iran’s response will be quite severe. This is a conflict between Iran and the rogue Israeli regime, and the United States must stay out of it!”

Iran responded to the attack on the Iranian consulate in Damascus on Saturday night by firing three waves of projectiles consisting of suicide drones, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles toward Israel. The attack, which killed seven senior members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), is believed by many to be carried out by Israel, but no Israeli official has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Article 51 of the United Nations Charter states: “Nothing in this Charter shall protect the inherent right of individual or collective self-defense in the event of an armed attack against a Member State of the United Nations until the Security Council has taken the necessary measures.” It is not intended to be detrimental.” Maintain international peace and security. ”

Iran has previously failed to comply with diplomatic protection for its embassies and consulates, particularly with regard to the United States and Israel. Iran and its main strategic ally, Hezbollah, the US-designated terrorist group in Lebanon, are accused of bombing the US embassy in Beirut in 1983, killing 63 people, including 17 Americans. And in 1983, two suicide truck bombers blew up American and French coalition barracks in Lebanon. Among them were 220 U.S. Marines., 18 U.S. Navy sailors and three U.S. Army soldiers lost their lives. 58 French military personnel were also killed in the attack.

Iran’s attack on Israel: What kind of drones and missiles will Tehran use in its attack?

Most recently, an Argentine court found Iran, in collaboration with its Hezbollah proxy, responsible for the 1994 Argentine Mutual Israel Association (AMIA) and Israeli embassy bombings. Associated Press reported.

In 1979, extremist Iranian students seized the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and took approximately 52 Americans hostage in what became known as the Iran Hostage Crisis. The crisis is said to have “dominated headlines and news broadcasts” and played a key role in tarnishing President Jimmy Carter’s image and further eroding his popularity ahead of the 1980 presidential election, which he lost in a landslide.

Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations introduced a motion last week condemning Israel’s attack on Damascus, but the United States, Britain and France all opposed the statement and blocked its adoption. They argued that the facts about the attack remained unclear and members were unable to reach an agreement.

Russia and Iran condemned Security Council members for not adopting the statement, which Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called “political murder,” according to Middle East Monitor.
