Iran’s Mission to the United Nations said that in the ongoing confrontations between Iran and “Israel”, the United States “must stay away.”

In a post on X, the mission said that the wide-ranging attack launched by the country was in response to “Israel’s” aggression against Iran’s diplomatic premises in Damascus.

It said that the matter “can be deemed concluded.”

Should the Israeli regime “make another mistake,” Iran’s response will be considerably more severe, the mission added.

“Conducted on the strength of Article 51 of the UN Charter pertaining to legitimate defense, Iran’s military action was in response to the Zionist regime’s aggression against our diplomatic premises.” the mission stated.

“The U.S. MUST STAY AWAY!” it added.

UNSC fails to prevent regional escalation

Earlier on Thursday, Iran’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations underlined the necessity of Tehran responding to the Israeli airstrike on its consulate in Damascus, which martyred seven Iranian military advisors, including Briga
dier General martyr Mohammad Reza Zahedi, the leader of the IRGC’s Quds Force in Syria and Lebanon.

Iran’s diplomats stressed that if it were not for the impunity enjoyed by the Israeli occupation in the UN Security Council, and if the perpetrators of the attack on Iran’s consulate in Syria were brought to justice, the Islamic Republic would not have found it necessary to retaliate against the Israeli occupation.

“Had the UN Security Council condemned the Zionist regime’s reprehensible act of aggression on our diplomatic premises in Damascus and subsequently brought to justice its perpetrators, the imperative for Iran to punish this rogue regime might have been obviated,” the mission said in a brief statement.
