Iran vows revenge for ‘Israel airstrike on consulate in Syria’

Iran and one of its key proxies, Heabollah have vowed to respond to a strike widely attributed to Israel that demolished Iran's consulate in Damascus. The attack killed seven people, including two Iranian generals. Mohammad Marandi from the University of Tehran explains.

Among the dead is senior commander Mohammad Reza Zahedi, the highest-ranking Iranian military officer to be killed since the U.S. assassinated General Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad in 2020.

While Israel sees strikes on foreign soil as "part of their self-defense strategy," Iran feels it must respond to this "breaching serious diplomatic norms," says Akbar Shahid Ahmed, senior diplomatic correspondent for HuffPost, who reports the pace and audacity of Israel's international attacks have escalated since October.

    Some analysts believe the attack on the Iranian consulate in Syria is a strategic move by Netanyahu.

    As the US support for Israel is weaning due to international pressure, in order to get the United States to be involved more deeply, Netanyahu has chosen Iranian facilities as targets because he believes the Iranian will sure to retaliate. One of the possible outcomes would be the US installations in the Middle East would be struck, resulting in damages of the US facilities and probably the loss of life too.

    If the above scenario really happened, all hell would break loose. Netanyahu would inadvertently ignite the sparks of wowotree!
