Israel’s malign behavior stems from blind Western support: Iran Foreign Ministry

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman has censured Israel for threatening Iran with military action following a recent attack on an Israeli-managed tanker in the Sea of Oman, blaming Western countries for Tel Aviv’s “malign behavior.”

“In another brazen violation of Int’l law, Israeli regime now blatantly threatens #Iran with military action,” Saeed Khatibzadeh said in a Thursday tweet.

The Iranian spokesman blamed the West for Israel’s “malign behavior,” saying that the regime’s conduct was the outcome of Western countries’ blind support for Tel Aviv.

Khatibzadeh then warned the Zionist regime and its supporters that “ANY foolish act against Iran will be met with a DECISIVE response.”

“Don’t test us,” Iran’s Foreign Ministry admonished Israel.

Tensions simmer in the region in the wake of a suspected drone attack last week on the Israeli-managed tanker — Mercer Street — off the Omani coast, where two crew members were killed. With no evidence, the United States, Israel and Britain blamed Iran for the incident. Tehran rejects the blame, categorically.
