Iran asserts military advisors to forcefully continue anti-terror mission in region

The Foreign Minister says Iranian military advisors will continue their anti-terror mission in the region in defiance of Israel’s “cowardly” assassination operations.

“Iran’s military advisers will strongly continue activities to fight terrorism and ensure regional security,” Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said in an X post on Saturday, after five members of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) were martyred in an Israeli strike in Syria.

The top Iranian diplomat paid tribute to the martyrs and wished the bereaved families peace and patience.

“The Israeli regime is the main accomplice to terrorist currents and enemy number one of regional security,” Amir-Abdollahian noted.

“Undoubtedly, the Zionists’ defeat against the will of the people of Gaza cannot be compensated by such cowardly terrorist acts.”

The IRGC advisors were assassinated in an Israeli airstrike on a residential building in the tightly guarded Mezzeh neighborhood, west of the Syrian capital Damascus.

Iran’s President Ebrahim Raeisi said Israel’s terrorist act is an indicative of the regime’s failure to achieve its malicious goals and the depth of its frustration with the fighters of the resistance front, warning that the targeted killing will not go unanswered.

Israel’s assassination of IRGC advisors will not go unanswered: Raeisi

Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi has strongly condemned the assassination of five Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) advisors in an Israeli missile strike in Syria.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kan’ani also said the Islamic Republic reserves the right to respond to the organized terrorism of the occupying entity at an appropriate time and place.

Iran has maintained an advisory mission in Syria at the request of Damascus with the aim of helping the war-torn country vanquish the foreign-backed militants, who have been fighting against the Syrian government since 2011.

Iran’s advisory assistance helped Syria defeat Daesh and win back control of almost all regions from terrorists.

The Tel Aviv regime has ramped up its airstrikes on Syria since early October, when the regime launched the ongoing genocidal war on the besieged Gaza Strip.

More than 100 days into the brutal aggression, Israel has failed to achieve its objectives of “destroying” the Hamas resistance movement and finding Israeli captives in Gaza despite killing almost 25,000 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injuring over 62,300 others.
