The U.S. issued a caution to Iran through the U.N. Security Council, emphasizing that it was not forewarned about the assault on the Iranian embassy in Syria, which Iran attributes to Israel, an ally of the U.S. The incident, which resulted in the death of two Iranian generals and five military advisors, is among the most severe strikes on Iranian interests in Syria, where Israel has intensified its campaign against Iran.
Deputy U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Robert Wood, stated that the U.S. is prepared to protect its personnel and reiterated warnings to Iran and its affiliates to refrain from exploiting the situation to attack U.S. forces, stressing that the U.S. had no role or prior knowledge of the attack.
Following the cessation of attacks by Iran-supported groups on U.S. forces in Iraq and Syria in February, the U.S. responded to the killing of three U.S. soldiers in Jordan with numerous airstrikes on sites in Syria and Iraq associated with the IRGC and supported militias.

Iran informed the Security Council of its right to respond decisively to the assault, accusing Israel of breaching the UN Charter, international law, and the sanctity of diplomatic sites. Iran’s deputy UN Ambassador, Zahra Ershadi, held the U.S. accountable for the actions of Israel, alleging U.S. attempts to destabilize Syria and the region, and criticized U.S. support for Israel against Hamas.
Ershadi urged the Security Council to denounce the attack on the Iranian diplomatic facility in Damascus. Wood mentioned that the U.S. lacks confirmation regarding the status of the targeted building in Damascus, but any verified attack on a diplomatic site would be concerning. He emphasized the importance of safeguarding diplomatic missions and residences, particularly during armed conflicts.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres condemned the Damascus attack, urging all parties to show maximum restraint and prevent escalation. His spokesperson, Stephane Dujarric, warned that any misjudgment could trigger a broader conflict in the already unstable region, with severe repercussions for civilians suffering in Syria, Lebanon, the Occupied Palestinian Territory, and the broader Middle East.
