Amir-Abdollahian made the statement in a phone conversation on Monday with his Syrian counterpart, Faisal Mekdad, who had called to discuss the various aspects of the latest Israeli aggression in the Arab country.

Condemning the attack as a violation of all international obligations and conventions, Amir-Abdollahian said the Zionist regime would be responsible for the consequences of this action as he emphasized the need for a serious response by the international community to such criminal measures.

The top Iranian diplomat also thanked Mekdad for visiting the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Damascus shortly after the Israeli attack.

“[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu has completely lost his mental equilibrium due to the back-to-back defeats of the Israeli regime in Gaza and his failure to achieve the ambitious goals of the Zionists,” Amir-Abdollahian added.

The Syrian foreign minister, for his part, condemned the regime's attack "in the strongest terms," and described it as a gross violation of international regulations, especially the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.

Syria's official news agency, SANA, said the deadly aggression was carried out by “the Israeli enemy” and targeted the Mezzeh neighborhood in Damascus on Monday afternoon.
