What India says is worried about Iran's attack

Iran attacked Israel with more than two hundred drones and missiles in response to the deadly attack on the Iranian embassy in Damascus, the capital of Syria. After this attack, the governments and heads of state of different countries of the world reacted. Now India responded.

In a statement on Sunday (April 14), the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that India is “very concerned” about the escalation of conflict between Israel and Iran in the Middle East. This conflict poses a threat to peace and security in the West Asian region.

“We call on (both sides) to immediately cease hostilities, exercise restraint, desist from violence and return to the path of diplomacy,” the statement said. We are closely monitoring the evolving situation. Our embassies in the Middle East maintain close contact with the Indian community. Maintaining security and stability in the region is vital.

On April 1, Israel launched a deadly missile attack on the Iranian consulate in Damascus, the capital of Syria. 7 high-ranking officials including two commanders of the Revolutionary Guard were killed. Iranian officials have been warning of retaliation since the attack.

Two weeks later, on Saturday (April 13) night, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) fired hundreds of drones and missiles at Israeli territory. Yemeni armed group Houthi joined the attack. After that, the Lebanese armed group Hezbollah launched a rocket attack on Israel.
