China condemns attack on Iranian embassy in Syria

Beijing, Apr 2 (Prensa Latina) China today condemned Israel's attack on the Iranian embassy in Syria in which several persons were killed. Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said the safety of the diplomatic community is inviolable, and Syria's sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity must be respected.

“At a time when the situation in the Middle East is unstable, we oppose any act that leads to an escalation of tensions,” he stressed.

According to Syrian media, the Zionist offensive caused damage the day before to the residence of the ambassador of the Syrian nation, who was unharmed along with all the diplomats.

Two loud explosions were heard throughout the capital as a result of the Israeli aggression while anti-aircraft defenses were activated to intercept the projectiles.

The offensive comes 24 hours after a missile attack on positions around this capital, in which two civilians were wounded.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry urged the UN Security Council to fulfill its responsibilities and put an end to these aggressions.

Resolution 2728 adopted by this body recently unequivocally calls for a ceasefire and the lifting of all barriers to the delivery of large-scale humanitarian assistance in Gaza.
