UN Secretary General condemns Israeli attack on Iranian consulate in Damascus

New York, IRNA - UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres condemned the attack by the Israeli regime on the Iranian consulate building in Damascus, Syria, and warned that any miscalculation could lead to a wider conflict in an unstable region, with devastating consequences for civilians.

"UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres condemns the attack on the diplomatic facilities of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Damascus on April 1, as well as the reported casualties," UN Spokesman Stephane Dujarric said on Tuesday.

The Secretary-General reaffirms that the principle of the inviolability of diplomatic and consular premises and personnel must be respected in all cases in accordance with international law.

He also reminds all parties to respect all their obligations under international law, including international humanitarian law, as applicable. He also repeats his calls on all concerned to avoid attacks that could harm civilians and damage civilian infrastructure.

The Secretary-General further calls on all concerned to exercise utmost restraint and avoid further escalation. He cautions that any miscalculation could lead to broader conflict in an already volatile region, with devastating consequences for civilians who are already seeing unprecedented suffering in Syria, Lebanon, the Occupied Palestinian Territory, and the broader Middle East.
