Iranian Speaker: Israel’s Terrorist Moves Put Region in Jeopardy
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani decried Israel’s recent attack targeting members of Hezbollah Resistance Movement in Syria, saying that the “terrorist moves” by the occupying regime have seriously endangered the Middle East region.
“The Zionist regime is playing a fundamental role in terrorist operations, which have intensified in Syria and Iraq,” Larijani told reporters upon his arrival in Iran's northwestern province of Ardebil on Tuesday.
He also sent a message to Hezbollah Secretary General Seyed Hassan Nasrallah, and expressed his condolences over the martyrdom of six members of the movement in the Israeli attack in Quneitra region in Syria on Sunday.
“The Zionists’ attack in Quneitra proved that they are colluding with terrorists,” the Iranian parliament speaker said in the message.
A military helicopter gunship operated by the Israeli army fired two missiles into Amal Farms in the strategic southwestern city of Quneitra, situated some 60 kilometers (37 miles) south of the capital, Damascus, on Sunday.
Later, Hezbollah announced that Jihad Mughniyeh, the son of Hezbollah's slain top military commander, Imad Mughniyeh, and a field commander were killed in the attack.
The Tel Aviv regime has carried out several airstrikes in Syria since the start of the nearly four-year-old foreign-backed militancy there.
