Islamabad, Pakistan – In response to recent events necessitating clarification, the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Pakistan issues the following statement regarding the military action against the Zionist Regime:

  1. Proportionate Defensive Action: The military action undertaken by the Islamic Republic of Iran against the Zionist regime was strictly targeted at military bases within occupied Palestine. It was a measured response aimed at deterring further aggression.
  2. Protection of Civilians and Non-Military Targets: It is imperative to highlight that no civilians or non-military centers, including cities, hospitals, synagogues, or infrastructures, were targeted during this operation. Iran remains committed to upholding humanitarian principles in all circumstances.
  3. Legitimate Right of Self-Defense: The defensive measures undertaken by Iran fall squarely within the inherent and legitimate right of self-defense as enshrined in Article 51 of the United Nations Charter.
  4. Response to Aggression: This action was prompted by the Zionist regime’s egregious violation of international law through its military attack on the consular section of the Iranian embassy in Damascus. Such actions resulted in the martyrdom of seven Iranian military advisers, invited by the Syrian government, constituting a clear breach of diplomatic protocols and international conventions.
  5. Commitment to International Norms: While asserting its sovereignty and territorial integrity, Iran reiterates its dedication to the principles outlined in the United Nations Charter. It stands firm against any illegal use of force and aggression, underscoring its commitment to regional and international peace and security.
  6. Responsibility Amidst Crisis: Iran’s defensive measures signify a responsible approach to regional and international peace and security, especially in light of ongoing atrocities committed by the Zionist regime against the innocent people of Gaza.
  7. Exercise of Restraint: Despite provocations, Iran has consistently demonstrated restraint, adhering to its principled framework. However, the continuation of such provocations risks miscalculation by the Zionist regime.
  8. Addressing the Root Cause: The root of the ongoing crisis in the region lies in the Zionist regime’s relentless aggression and genocide in Gaza, a reality that cannot be ignored in any meaningful resolution effort.
  9. Call for Immediate Ceasefire: Iran emphasizes the urgent need for an immediate cessation of hostilities and the establishment of a ceasefire in Gaza, accompanied by unhindered humanitarian aid delivery to affected regions.
  10. Warning Against Further Provocations: Iran’s response, though minimal in scope, serves as a warning against further aggression. Any repetition of hostile actions by the Zionist regime will be met with more severe and decisive measures from Iran.
