TEHRAN, April 16 (MNA) – The spokesman of the Iranian Parliament National Security Commission says that Iran's attack on Israel was a controlled powerful response to the regime's aggression against the country's diplomatic annex in Damascus."It has been about 190 days since the Zionist usurper regime bombed Gaza and killed the oppressed Palestinian people.

This regime did not adhere to the UN Security Council resolution to stop the Gaza war and did not implement it," Abolfazl Amouei said in an interview with Mehr News Agency.

Referring to Iran's retaliatory attack on Israeli military bases in occupied Palestine in response to the Tel Aviv regime's airstrike on the country's consulate building in the Syrian capital of Damascus on April 1, the senior Iranian lawmaker said that the anti-Israeli attack was carried out based on Article 51 of the United Nations Charter, and Iran's action was a legitimate defensive action.

"In this operation, we responded to the aggression of the Zionist regime with the aim of restoring deterrence, and it was a powerful and at the same time controlled response and it had its effect," he underlined.

"From the beginning, we announced that we are not seeking war in the region, but we are seeking to reduce tension and solve problems in the region, and we consider the main problem to be the crimes of the Zionist regime against the people of Gaza.

With the end of these crimes and the Palestinian people getting their rights, the tension in the region will definitely decrease.

It is the aggressive nature of the Zionist regime that constantly increases tensions in the region." He went on to say that if the Islamic Republic of Iran had refused to respond to the Zionist regime's attack on the Iranian consulate in Damascus, then the Zionists would have miscalculated that Iran was unable to respond, he added.

In response to the Israeli terrorist attack on Iran's consulate building in Syria on April 1, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps attacked targets in occupied Palestine with dozens of drones and missiles early on Sunday.

The Israeli regime attacked Iran's consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus on April 1.

The Israeli aggression led to the destruction of the entire building and the martyrdom and injury of the entire people inside it.

Seven of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) military advisors were martyred following the Israeli attack on Iran's consulate in Damascus.
