Iran says Israel launched Syria strikes on false ‘pretexts’

Tehran (AFP) – Iran on Friday condemned Israel’s air raids in Syria, saying they had been launched on “invented pretexts”. 

“The repeated attacks by the Zionist regime on Syrian territory were carried out under pretexts that were invented by themselves and are without foundation,” said foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi, cited by semi-official news agency ISNA.
