Iran punitive response

Iranian president, Ebrahim Raeisi, has hailed his country’s recent attack on Israeli targets as a great hour that showed the strength of the Islamic republic and the power of its armed forces. Raeisi said the True Promise operation was a necessary response to Israel’s strike on the Iranian embassy in Syria earlier this month. He said the operation also enhanced unity in Iran. The president made the comments as he addressed people in the city of Damghan during a provincial trip. In Tehran, the commander of the Iranian Army’s ground force, Brigadier General Kioumars Heydari, said armed forces successfully punished Israel in their retaliatory strike.

Palestine UN membership
