Israel Demands UN Security Council Condemn "Iranian Aggression" following Golan Rocket Attack

(Jerusalem Post) Daniel J. Roth - Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon demanded the UN Security Council condemn Iran on Thursday after its forces launched a missile attack on Israel's Golan Heights from Syria. In a letter addressed to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Danon said: "Israel holds the government of Iran, together with the Syrian regime, directly responsible for this attack and we will continue to defend our citizens vigorously against all acts of aggression. Israel is not interested in escalation, but under no circumstances will we allow Iran to establish a military presence in Syria whose purpose is to attack Israel." "I call on the Security Council to immediately condemn this attack and demand that Iran remove its military presence from Syria that not only threatens Israel, but the stability of our entire region. The international community must not stand idly by while a tyrannical regime attacks a sovereign nation and continues to threaten the very existence of a member-state of the United Nations."
