Iran and Israel Both Vow to Respond in Kind to Any Further Attacks

HeadlineApr 16, 2024

Tensions remain high throughout the region amid reports an Israeli response to Iran’s weekend attack could be imminent. Iran warned Israel against launching any further military action, two weeks after an Israeli attack killed at least two Iranian generals at its consulate in Damascus, Syria. This is Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian: “If the Israeli regime makes a mistake, this time Iran’s response, as Iran’s military commanders announced, will not be minimal, but immediate and severe.”

U.N. legal experts say the Israeli attack violated international law. Meanwhile, the U.S. is reportedly preparing new sanctions against Iran.
