Iran Strongly Condemns Israeli Official's Warmongering RhetoricTakht Ravanchi, in two identical letters to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and the rotating President of the UN Security Council Zhang Jun, vehemently censured the head of Israel’s so-called National Security Council, Eyal Holata, over his latest anti-Iran comments.

Holata openly threatened Iran with more terrorist operations, saying in an interview in mid-July, “We (Israel) have rarely acted in Iran over the past year. Tel Aviv will act independently against the Islamic Republic of Iran, regardless of Washington’s opinion on this issue."

“These statements clearly confirm the Israeli regime’s accountability for acts of sabotage and terrorist acts in Iran,” the Iran’s UN ambassador noted.

Takht Ravanchi maintained that such provocative remarks are not only a blatant violation of international law and the UN Charter, but also an open acknowledgment of the Israeli regime’s responsibility for terrorist operations and actions against Iranian officials, scientists, and civilian nuclear facilities in recent years.

“It also proves the fact that the Israeli regime is responsible for such criminal and terrorist acts; and that it must be held accountable and accept all likely consequences of such crimes,” the Iranian diplomat added.

Takht Ravanchi went on to censure the recent remarks by Israeli minister for military affairs Benny Gantz, who claimed during an interview at a Channel 13 conference in occupied al-Quds on July 26 that the Tel Aviv regime has the ability to cause serious damage to Iran’s nuclear program.

The Iranian ambassador finally called upon the Security Council to honor its statutory obligations to international peace and security and to condemn the war-mongering policies and malicious activities of the Israeli regime, which pose a serious threat to international peace and security. 

Iran says Israel is the primary source of instability in West Asia, and the United States remains responsible for the instability in the region as long as its wrong and crisis-stirring policies are not rectified.

Tehran has repeatedly warned that any mistake by the US and Israel will be met with Iran's crushing response.

Iranian officials say Washington and Tel Aviv are well aware of Tehran’s capabilities and capacities, and caution that Tehran does not compromise or joke with its national security.

On Thursday, President Seyed Ebrahim Rayeesi said military option has been excluded from enemies’ policies towards Iran due to the country’s might, and added that the regional countries enjoy safety because of Tehran's power.

President Rayeesi also warned that everyone has to know that the smallest aggression against Iran will receive a crushing response.
