    For those who say: "Iran does not respond."
    We must remind them that it has been supporting Palestine, Lebanon and Syria since 1979.
    Thanks to this country, the Axis of Resistance exists, which today is attacking Israel daily.
    Where do the missiles, drones and other weapons of Hamas, Jihad, Hezbollah, the Iraqi Resistance, and Yemen come from?

    ⚡ Statement by the Russian Foreign Ministry in connection with the attack on the Iranian Consulate building in Damascus

    💬 On the evening of April 1, the Israeli Air Force attacked the Iranian Consulate building in Damascus. As a result of the attack, the building was completely destroyed. According to incoming information, there is a significant number of dead and wounded, including diplomats.

    ❗ We strongly condemn this attack on the Iranian consular office in Syria.

    We consider any attacks on diplomatic and consular facilities, the inviolability of which is guaranteed by the relevant Vienna Conventions, to be categorically unacceptable.

    We draw special attention to the fact that the attack was carried out in a densely populated metropolitan area, which created a high risk of mass casualties among the civilian population. We proceed from the fact that such aggressive actions by Israel are absolutely unacceptable and must be stopped.

    ⚠ We consider it necessary for all responsible members of the international community to clearly define their position and appropriate legal assessment of these actions. We strongly urge the Israeli leadership to abandon the practice of provocative military actions in Syria and other neighboring countries, which is fraught with extremely dangerous consequences throughout the entire region.

    https://tass.com/politics/1768945
    UNITED NATIONS, April 2. /TASS/. The UN Security Council will hold an open meeting, requested by Russia, on the Israeli strike at an Iranian diplomatic facility in Syria on April 2, Russian First Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Dmitry Polyansky announced.

    "After Israel's airstrike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus today, Iranians have turned to the UN Security Council to condemn this action. Following their letter we have requested an open briefing of the UN Security Council. The Maltese presidency has scheduled it for 3:00 PM New York time (10:00 PM Moscow time) on April 2nd," the said on social media.

    Tit for tat. Eye for an eye. No cunning plans. No revenge is best served cold. No Russia/Iran is playing long game.

    If Russia became like the west then the west has won. Russia is a civilised grownup, not a petulant child with tantrum issues.

    The west is evil and if you fight fire with fire then you become the evil you claim to be fighting.

    There are plenty of ways Iran and Russia can respond and taking the time to formulate how to damage those who are responsible makes good sense.... as opposed to the western habit of immediately lashing out and often inflicting more damage on itself than the desired target... you know... like all that cheap energy the west used to get from Russia, or from a Finnish perspective all that cheap timber and electricity and even tourism they used to get from Russia they have turned their backs on.

    The west is losing and their only hope now is to get Russia to lash out the way they do so they can point and say they are no better than us to the rest of the world.

    Russia and Iran are grown ups though which is why they are not in the position the west has put itself in.

    whining to the UN is not going to solve anything.

    You have to use the official channels in place to show they don't work before you can get other countries to agree to create a real international alternative that is not controlled by the colonial west.

    A necessary step in a future for change.

    When the west refuses to condemn the Israeli attack on an Iranian consular building in Syria then perhaps Russia might say that a certain US consular building in the Ukraine that is clearly performing non consular roles should therefore be a legitimate target for an FAB-3000 perhaps in the near future...

    I look forward to western excuses justifying the Israeli attack because those excuses can be used in response to their wall of protests against Russia doing the same thing in Ukraine.

    🇮🇷 Iran’s Foreign Minister:

    Following the Israeli regime's terrorist attack on Iran's consulate in Damascus and the martyrdom of several military advisers, the Swiss embassy official was summoned.

    The dimensions of the terrorist attack and the crime of the Israeli regime were explained and the responsibility of the American government was emphasized.

    An important message was sent to the American government as a supporter of the Zionist regime. America must be held accountable.

    I have to reply and remind . It is the Iranians fault for not retaliating for previous attacks . They disguise human sacrifice for " martyrdom . " keeps the locals happy and keeps the status quo in power . But can they let this go too ? Line up the coffins in a parade and sing a religious song . Blame the outside and forget the inside ! The Zionists did this for exactly the same reason . Demonstrations against Netanyahu , and people must blame the outside and forget the inside .

    And we must not let them look outside . They must look inside . And we can not let this go too . And we should , if we could , avoid a regional war . A timely and proportional response not aimed at the average Zionist citizen . A retaliation with the power to convince them , if they had any sense , not to escalate or do it again ! And a response that helps the Palestinians and the axis fighting the Zionists .

    Then port and Airport facilities importing American munitions are best targets . They can not hide or move these . They do expect an attack now . Damage them to the point , they can not immediately be used , or in the near future . A retaliation that mirrors theirs , launched from Iranian soil against Israeli soil . Not involving third countries or consulates or private Villas .

    If they had any sense , then they would refrain from further attacks . But the Zionists are drowning in their own filth . And like a crashing man , will pull down anyone trying to swim and pull them out . Therefore Iran must be ready for further escalation , up to and including a nuclear attack or exchange . It is either this path or Iran accepting the dictatorship of the Zionists from now on !

    I have said before , a war between Iran and Israel , may only be a platonic war . A remote and unproductive or inconclusive war , since the opportunity to capture the opponent's territory is difficult . The enemy then always having the opportunity to rejuvenate in the spring . It does not matter how Iran responds , Israel has started a war and Iran has to retaliate directly or indirectly . And leaving a wounded enemy is worse than leaving an enemy .

    So as far as possible , Iran has to finish the job . It will not be enough to give a " slap in the face . " To make the enemy regret , but to annihilate the enemy .  The Zionists are not Jesus Christ , they will not turn the other cheek ! Iran needs to send a land Army to occupied Palestine across Iraq , through Syria and attack from there . As well as a massive air strike by missiles / planes . And also interception of submarines and Ship at Sea . Of course Iran needs to make ready a nuke or two , in case the Zionists get the hunger for radiation poisonings .

    As previously all important facilities should be ready for strikes . Nuclear fuel to be removed from reactors . Emergency generators on standby . Water reservoirs and public storage to increase . Emergency Radio masts on the ready . Oil and Gas storage underground , empty tanks and tankers above ground . No good going about this half- cocked !

    attack

    https://en.mehrnews.com/news/213501/Israeli-regime-should-be-punished-within-international-law

    The English language articles , point to no retaliation ! But giving the Zionists a parking ticket for destroying Iranian consulate and killing Iranian advisors !!

    https://en.mehrnews.com/news/213506/Pro-Palestine-naval-drill-to-be-held-in-Iran-4-countries

    The Iranians will defeat the Zionists by fishing Boats naval drill in the PG region !! They have also planned big demonstrations on Quds day ! This explains the dichotomy between the English language articles and Persian language articles . The hapless and compromised / unpopular minority administration , has already made full use of the corpses of the sacrificed Iranian soldiers , to get people into the street ! But this will not buy them security or legitimacy .

    Iranian military personnel should now either avoid going to Syria , or establish own security protocols to defend their lives . Those in power in Iran have more uses for them dead than alive ! Zionists now have a free hand at attacking Iran itself .

    No

    🇮🇱🇮🇷❗Israel is seriously preparing for an air attack from Iran. Iran today put its troops on alert.

    In Israel, public bomb shelters have been opened, and air defense has been put on full alert.

    All senior military-political leadership is preparing for strikes and can take places in bunkers. In Jerusalem, the evacuation of shrines, religious books and artifacts began.


    🇮🇱🇱🇧📡 — Israeli Army Radio reports that the GPS disruptions have also reached the center of the Israel, with Israeli residents in the central Tel Aviv report that the GPS are now placing them in Beirut

    Israeli pages claim that it may be the preparation of an attack on the Israeli homeland that may be imminent.

    Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has appealed to Israelis in Hebrew

    "With God's help we will make the Zionists repent of their crime of aggression against the Iranian consulate in Damascus," he said in a post on X.

    On Tuesday, Khamenei said Iran would make Israel regret the attack on the consulate, while he wished "peace and mercy" for those who had been killed.

    Beyond the fact that Iran will respond to the Zionist attack (at the right moment), this state of psychosis is good for harming Israel.
    For several hours, preparations of all kinds (civil and military) have been seen, in prevention of an Iranian attack.
    On the one hand, the longer the attack is delayed, the more the uncertainty will be.
    On the other hand, at some point Iran will respond and we will see what happens.
    If in the event of such an attack (which will be limited) Israel is unable to intercept all Iranian weapons, this will further lower Israeli confidence in its defences. Therefore, it will weaken its already weakened deterrence power.
    Another question is what Israel will do when Iran responds.
    This situation may lead to a major confrontation in the Middle East.

    Israeli media:

    - The head of the Investigation Division of Israeli Intelligence (Aman), Amit Saer, resigns from his position.

    - The interference of the GPS system in several areas of “Israel” is due to the intense security alert in anticipation of an Iranian response.

    - Today, military and security institutions began to activate GPS jamming throughout “Israel”, including the center.


    - Unrest broke out in the north and earlier this week in Eilat and Arava, and this morning also in Gush Dan.

    - The action occurs as part of the preparation for an Iranian response and the launch of cruise missiles, drones or guided missiles.

    - The Home Front Command decided to carry out an awareness campaign for the Israeli public on what to do if a war breaks out in the north.

    'The directives of the Home Front Command remain unchanged. There is no need to buy generators, store food, and withdraw money from ATMs.

    As we have done until today, we will immediately update any change if it is in an official and orderly manner.'
