In a statement released today by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the UAE expressed strong condemnation for the attack on the Iranian diplomatic mission in Damascus, Syria.

According to Syrian officials and state media on Monday, an Israeli airstrike destroyed the consular section of Iran's embassy in Syria. The strike resulted in the tragic loss of life, including a senior Iranian military adviser, General Ali Reza Zahdi, who had previously led the elite Quds Force in Lebanon and Syria until 2016.

Iranian Ambassador Hossein Akbari denounced the attack, stating that up to seven individuals lost their lives, with two police officers guarding the building sustaining injuries. He vowed retaliation, pledging a response of equal magnitude.

Charles Lister, the director of the Syria program at the Middle East Institute, characterized the strike as a significant escalation, anticipating retaliatory measures.

Syria's Foreign Minister, Faisal Mekdad, condemned the attack during a phone call with his Iranian counterpart, while Iran's foreign ministry spokesman, Nasser Kanaani, urged the international community to denounce the strike.

State news agency SANA reported that the building, located in the heavily guarded Mazzeh neighborhood, was completely destroyed.

Israel's targeting of Iranian military officials and allies in Syria has intensified in recent times, although Israel has refrained from officially acknowledging such actions.
