Iran Says Israel, Terrorists in Syria Have Common Interests

TEHRAN – Iran, a major ally of the Syrian government, denounced on Saturday Israeli airstrikes in Syria a day earlier and said the Jewish state and terror groups operating inside the Arab country had common interests.

According to Iran’s Islamic Republic News Agency, Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi called on the United Nations to do everything in its power to prevent a repeat of the bombardments, which he termed violations of peace and security.

Qasemi added that the fact that the airstrikes were carried out at a time when Syrian government forces were gaining ground against terrorists showed that Israel had common interests with extremists.

“This demonstrates that the Israeli usurper regime and terrorists have common interests and positions and that Tel Aviv is looking to boost the Takfiri-Zionist terrorists,” the spokesman added.

The Israeli army on Friday reported that it had launched airstrikes against several positions in Syria, saying that several anti-aircraft missiles were launched from Syria following the mission.

The Syrian army, for its part, said it had shot down an Israeli aircraft in the Golan Heights, but Israel denied the report.

“This blatant Israeli act of aggression came as part of the Zionist enemy’s persistence with supporting ISIS terrorist gangs and in a desperate attempt to raise their deteriorating morale and divert attention away from the victories which Syrian Arab Army is making in the face of the terrorist organizations,” the Syrian Arab News Agency reported Saturday, citing a statement by the Syrian armed forces.
