Iran says UN Security Council should have condemned embassy attack in Syria

Iran's mission to the United Nations said that Tehran's "imperative" to retaliate for the attack on its embassy compound in Damascus might have been avoided if the UN Security Council condemned the strike.

"Had the UN Security Council condemned the Zionist regime’s reprehensible act of aggression on our diplomatic premises in Damascus and subsequently brought to justice its perpetrators, the imperative for Iran to punish this rogue regime might have been obviated," the mission said on X, referring to Israel.
