Commenting on the latest "Israeli" attack against Syria, senior advisor to Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei, Ali Akbar Velayati said: "Definitely, this crime will not remain without a response."
Velayati made his remarks upon arriving in the Syrian capital of Damascus on Tuesday, adding that Iran would strongly defend Syria's territorial integrity and national sovereignty.
In further details, two "Israeli" F-15 warplanes carried out strikes from Lebanese air space on T-4 air base in Homs on Sunday that killed and wounded several people. Syrian air defense systems shot down five out of eight missiles fired.
Relatively, Syria on Monday warned about the "dangerous repercussions" of "Israeli" assaults on its territories, stressing that the recent attack on Homs would not have been possible without massive US support.
Iran also strongly condemned the "Israeli" regime's air strike, saying it was a blatant violation of international law which would strengthen terrorists.
"The "Israeli" regime's aggression against Syria is a breach of this country's national sovereignty and territorial integrity and runs counter to all international regulations and principles," Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said.
Velayati, who is in Damascus to attend a conference on Palestine, said Iran would continue its support for the people and the government of Syria in the fight against their enemies, particularly the "Israeli" regime and its puppets in the Arab country.
He added that the "very important" achievements made by the Syrian army and its allies in the campaign against militants in the Eastern Ghouta have irked Syria's enemies.
Such victories made the US and the "Israeli" regime hatch an "evil plot" and falsely accuse the Syrian government of conducting a chemical attack near the Syrian capital, Velayati said.
