ran's permanent mission to the United Nations office in Geneva has underscored Iran’s commitment to international law and the UN Charter, saying the Islamic Republic seeks no escalation in the region.

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) targeted the Israeli-occupied territories late on Saturday with a barrage of drones and missiles in response to the regime’s deadly assault on the consular section of the Iranian Embassy in Damascus on April 1.

The retaliatory strikes have inflicted a yet-to-be-specified extent of damage on Israeli military bases across the occupied territories.

In a post on its X social media account on Sunday, Iran's permanent mission to the UN office in Geneva said the reprisal came after Israel’s “recurring” anti-Iran acts of aggression and the UN Security Council’s failure to hold the regime to account for its crimes.

“In exercising its inherent right of self-defense under Article 51 of the UN Charter, and in response to the Israeli regime recurring military aggressions, particularly its armed attack on 1st April 2024 against Iranian diplomatic premises, in defiance of Article 2 (4) of the UN Charter and in flagrant violation of Int'l Law, and subsequent to the failure of the UNSC in taking measures necessary to condemn and hold the aggressor accountable, Iran carried out a series of military strikes on Israeli military objectives,” the mission said.
