Envoy warning against negative impacts of military intervention in Syria

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran’s Ambassador to Turkey Alireza Bigdeli called on all groups involved in the Syrian crisis to be aware of the grave consequences of spreading bloodshed in the Muslim country.

“We hope that the group favoring war in Syria would change their mind because big wars have always started with a small ignition. The war wagers do not wish to end it. The flames of war will engulf the whole region,” Bigdeli said in Ankara on Tuesday, local media reported.

In recent days, the US, Israel and France have adopted the rhetoric of war against Syria over allegations that the Syrian government was behind a recent chemical attack near Damascus.

The call for military strike intensified after the militants operating inside Syria and the foreign-backed Syrian opposition claimed on August 21 that hundreds had been killed in a government chemical attack on militant strongholds in the Damascus suburbs of Ain Tarma, Zamalka and Jobar. The Syrian government has strongly denied the claim, accusing the militants of the attack.
