Iran says will not tolerate ‘any israeli operation from any country’

Iran says it will not tolerate any operation against the Iranian nation and government by the Israeli regime from any country.

Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali-Akbar Ahmadian made the remarks in a phone call with Iraqi National Security Adviser Qasim al-Araji on Wednesday.

During their conversation, the two officials highlighted joint efforts to provide and maintain the security of the two neighboring countries.

“Any action against the Iranian nation and government by the Israeli regime, no matter which country the threats come from, will not be tolerated in any way,” Ahmadian told his Iraqi counterpart.

Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Ashtiani said in similar remarks on Wednesday that the Islamic Republic will respond to threats “no matter where they come from,” adding that the country’s response would be “proportionate, decisive and strong.”

On Tuesday, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) carried out missile strikes against the bases of anti-Iran terrorists and facilities run by the Israeli Mossad spy agency in Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region and Syria.

The IRGC said in a statement that the Mossad center was used “to develop espionage operations and plan acts of terrorism” across the region, especially in Iran.

The missile strike against the Mossad center, the statement said, was in retaliation for the recent assassinations of the resistance front’s commanders, especially those of the IRGC, by the Zionist regime.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kan’ani also said the attack was a retaliatory operation in defense of the country’s sovereignty and security against the threat of terrorism.

Iran has, on countless occasions, warned Iraqi Kurdistan’s local authorities that it will not tolerate the presence and activity of terrorist groups along its northwestern borders, saying the country will give a decisive response should those areas become a haven for anti-Tehran terrorists.

Since September 2022, the IRGC has launched several rounds of strikes against terrorist positions in Iraq’s Kurdistan, vowing to continue the attacks until the groups are disarmed.

On March 19 last year, Iran and Iraq signed a security agreement in Baghdad, encompassing coordination in protecting the shared border.

Under the deal, the Iraqi government promised to disarm terrorist and separatist groups based in the Kurdistan region by September 19, vacate their military barracks, and transfer them to the camps established by the Baghdad government.
