Pakistan strongly condemns Israeli attack on Iranian Embassy in Syria

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has strongly condemned an Israeli air attack on the consular section of the Iranian Embassy in Syrian capital Damascus.

Foreign Office spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch in a statement on Tuesday termed the attack an unacceptable violation of the sovereignty of Syria and undermining its stability and security.

The spokesperson said the attack is a violation of international law and the UN Charter. She said attacks against diplomats or diplomatic facilities are also illegal under the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 1961. Mumtaz Zahra Baloch said the irresponsible act of the Israeli forces is a major escalation in an already volatile region.

She called on the UN Security Council to prevent Israel from its adventurism in the region and its illegal acts attacking its neighbors and targeting foreign diplomatic facilities. The spokesperson offered deepest condolences to the families of the victims and the people and the Government of Iran on behalf of Pakistan.
