Iran Seeks Answers From US As Israel Strike Kills Generals In Syria, All Gloves Off In Shadow War?

Iranian officials condemned Israel’s airstrikes on an Iranian embassy compound in Damascus, Syria, which killed three top Iranian commanders. But it issued a carefully worded response. Government supporters took to the streets and openly called for retaliation against Israel. Iran’s foreign minister, Hossein Amir Abdollahian, said in a post on the social media that Iran had summoned the Swiss ambassador and asked that an important message be delivered to Washington: That as Israel’s ally, the “U.S. must answer” for Israel’s actions. Switzerland acts as the United States’ representative in the absence of diplomatic relations between Tehran and Washington. The spokesman for Iran’s Parliament, Seyyed Nezamoldin Mousavi, told Iranian state media that “an appropriate response is a national request by the people of Iran.”The strike that targeted a part of Iranian Embassy complex in Damascus, killed three generals in Iran’s Quds Force and four other officers. This makes it one of the deadliest attacks in the shadow war between Tehran and Tel Aviv which has been going on for years now.On Crux Decode, is this attack different? Will Iran be forced to respond, and be seen to do so? And if it does, does it risk getting involved in a much wider, Middle East regional war?
