Iranian Defense Ministry: aggression against Syria to worsen situation in region
Any invasive act against Syria would worsen the current conflict in the Arab country, the Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan said.
“The evil phenomenon of terrorism, which is today active in Iraq and Syria, is an international threat, which will endanger the world if not contained and eliminated,” PressTV cited him as saying.
He also pointed to a US missile attack against a Syrian airbase in April and said any invasive act against Syria would worsen the situation in the region.
“By attempting to weaken the anti-terror resistance front, the hegemonic system is trying to guarantee the safety of the Zionist regime [of Israel] and to rebuild and reinforce the morale of the terrorists and justify its illegitimate presence... in the region,” Dehghan said.
