Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian warned of “serious consequences for Tel Aviv” from Israel’s air strike on a military site near Damascus Wednesday. He called on the Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon to adopt an effective and practical measure against the attack.  Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi called the attack a "blatant violation ... in line with the policy of the West and the Zionists.”
