Tehran/IBNS/UNI: Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani condemned Israel’s missile strike on the Syrian capital of Damascus, which reportedly killed five advisers of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), including Quds Force intelligence chief, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.

On Saturday, Iranian media reported that Israel’s air strike on Damascus killed five military advisers of IRGC, including the commander of the intelligence service of the Quds Force.

The Syrian Defense Ministry added that several civilians were killed and injured as a result of the attack.

"Kanaani has strongly condemned the murderous and aggressive attack on Saturday morning by the Zionist regime on the residential district of Mazzeh in Damascus … Kanaani said that the repeated violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria and the escalation of aggressive and provocative attacks on various targets in the country by the criminal and child-killing Zionist regime shows the helplessness of Tel Aviv on the battlefield against resistance forces in Gaza and the West Bank," the ministry said in a statement.

He added that Iran's military advisers were in Syria at the official invitation of Damascus and they played an important role in helping the Syrian government fight terrorism and contribute to the establishment of peace and stability in the country.
