None of the embassies of the Israeli regime are safe anymore, a top military adviser to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has warned.

In remarks on Sunday, Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi said the Leader promised a slap on the face of the Israeli regime such that the regime will regret attacking Iran’s consulate in Syria, adding that the Resistance Front is fully prepared to deliver on that promise.

“We have to wait and see what will happen,” the general said.

“None of the Zionist regime’s embassies are safe anymore, and therefore, it has so far closed down 28 of its embassies out of fear,” he added.

Rahim Safavi, a former chief commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, further said that Israeli settlers are living in fear due to the reckless attack on Iran’s consulate.

“They dream of dying every night and they are the most fearful creatures,” he stated.

On Monday afternoon, Israeli warplanes bombed the consular annex of Iran's embassy in the Syrian capital of Damascus.

The air raid killed 13 people, including seven members of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) who were on an advisory mission to Syria.

Iranian officials have emphasized the country’s right to deliver a firm response to the Israeli crime that violated all international obligations and conventions.
