Iran to sue Israel over strike on Iranian Consulate in Syria
Destroyed Iranian Consulate in Syria

Iran’s Vice President for Legal Affairs Mohammad Dehqan said the country would file a lawsuit against Israel for its deadly attack on the Iranian consulate in Syria, local media reports.

Dehqan made the remarks while addressing a news conference on the sidelines of a cabinet meeting in the Iranian capital Tehran.
He elaborated on Iran’s legal measures against Israel for its missile strike that leveled the consular building in the Syrian capital Damascus, resulting in 14 fatalities.
He said the Israeli attack violated international law and Iran is currently making the legal assessments and would soon provide information regarding its legal decisions.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said Tuesday that the death toll from the airstrike had risen to 14, including eight Iranians, five Syrians and one member of Lebanon’s Hezbollah militant group.
It noted that the death toll is likely to rise due to serious injuries.
