Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh says that the US raids on Iraq and Syria are part of the United States' arrogance, adding, "Stirring up tensions in the region is not in its interest."
Today, Monday, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said that the US raids on Syria and Iraq are part of its arrogance.
He pointed out that Washington should realize that it is on the wrong path and that "rising tension in the region is not in its interest."
Khatibzadeh directed Washington, saying: "We advise the new American administration in the United States to change its course instead of creating a crisis and creating problems for the peoples of the region, and to let the peoples of the region decide their fate without its interference," noting that "Washington should correct its mistakes and stop its interventions in the region."
He added: "America's actions destabilize the security of the region, and this will not be in its interest."
Today, the Sayyid Al-Shuhada Brigades announced the martyrdom of four of the 14th Brigade in American aggression on the border strip between Iraq and Syria, following an American raid targeting a site for the Popular Mobilization in the Al-Qaim area inside Iraqi territory.
In the statement, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said the airstrikes, directed by President Joe Biden, targeted operational and weapons storage facilities at two locations in Syria and one location in Iraq.
