Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said on Sunday that Tehran informed Washington and neighboring countries of an impending attack on Israel 72 hours before the attack, warning that Iran's attacks on Israel would be limited and carried out in self-defense, Al Hadath reported. .

The Iranian FM accused Israel's allies of obstructing its diplomatic efforts to condemn the Israeli attack on the Iranian consulate in Damascus, saying the international community calls on Iran to show restraint and turn a blind eye to Israel's crimes.

According to Amir-Abdollahian, the reluctance of the UN Security Council to issue a statement condemning the Israeli attack on the Damascus consulate of Iran prompted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to break the laws.

The Iranian FM said his country's military actions against Israel were limited because Iranian forces did not strike economic or civilian targets, while Tehran was precise in its military response, which he said was a reprimand and warning.
