Iran's UN envoy Zahra Ershadi told the Security Council briefing on Israel's strike against Iran's consulate in Damascus, "Iran has exercised considerable restraint, but it's imperative to acknowledge that there are limits to such forbearance.

Iran reserves its legitimate and inherent right under international law and the United Nations Charter to take a decisive response to such reprehensible acts."
Russia's UN envoy told the Security Council's briefing on the Israeli airstrike on Iran's Damascus consulate, "We consider any attacks on diplomatic and consular premises the inviolability of which is guaranteed by the relevant Vienna Conventions of 1961 and 1963 to be categorically unacceptable. This is not the first attack carried out by Israel in densely populated areas of Damascus, which generated high risks of mass casualties of civilians. Such aggressive actions by Israel are designed to further fuel the conflict. They're absolutely unacceptable and must stop. We urge West Jerusalem to abandon the practice of provocative acts against Syria and other areas."
