UNSC to convene over Israeli strike on Iran consulate: Russian envoy

New York, IRNA – The United Nations Security Council will convene later on Tuesday to discuss the Israeli regime’s act of aggression against Iran’s consulate in Syria, according to Russia’s First Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN.

“After Israel’s airstrike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus today, Iranians have turned to the UN Security Council to condemn this action,” Dmitry Polyanskiy wrote on his X (formerly Twitter) account on Monday night.

“Following their letter we have requested an open briefing of the UN Security Council. The Maltese presidency has scheduled it for 3:00 PM New York time on April 2nd,” he added.

Israeli warplanes bombed Iran’s consulate in the Syrian capital Damascus on Monday in a strike that martyred Iranian military advisers, including senior commanders.

On Monday night, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) confirmed the martyrdom of generals Mohammad Reza Zahedi and Mohammad Hadi Haj Rahimi and five of their companions in the attack.
