The comments, from the head of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, Saeed Jalili, came a day after Israel’s defense minister, Ehud Barak, indirectly confirmed the nation carried out a strike in Syria last week. The United States has reported the Israeli air strike was aimed at a convoy of trucks transporting weapons by the Syria-Lebanon border, according to Radio Free Europe. Syria, meanwhile, said the attacks targeted a military research base.
On Sunday, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said Israel was attempting to destabilize the country, Radio Free Europe reported.
