Iran’s Shamkhani rejects Israeli claim as “lie”

دیدار شمخانی با وزیر دفاع عراق

Tehran (ISNA) - Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani rejected as a lie the claims made by the Israeli regime that it has launched airstrikes in Syria after intercepting what it said was an Iranian drone.

“The claim by the Zionists to damage Iranian bases in Syria is a lie,” Ali Shamkhani told reporters in Tehran on the sidelines of the rallies marking the anniversary of the Islamic Revolution victory.

“Iran has advisory, not military presence in Syria,” the top security official emphasized.

The remarks came after the Syrian military said it had hit at least one intruding Israeli F-16 warplane that attacked positions inside Syrian territory, sending it down in flames and smoke.

“The Syrian nation proved this time that it will respond to any act of aggression, as the era of hit and run is over,” Shamkhani pointed out.
