The statement comes hours after the chief of Iran’s Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani, took to Twitter to say that Israeli airstrikes in Syria and the crash of two alleged Israeli drones in Lebanon “were the last struggles” of Israel.

Iranian authorities have issued an ominous warning to Israel, saying that it should understand that its recent “aggressive actions” in the region will have consequences, as Iraq, Syria and Lebanon have the right for self-defence.

“Israel must understand the consequences of its aggressive actions and that they come at a price”, Iranian Government spokesman Ali Rabiei said at a Monday news conference broadcast by Iranian television.
