BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The spokesperson for the Iranian Foreign Ministry Bahram Qasemi stated on Monday that Israel’s accusations about Iran having a military presence and base in Syria are ‘baseless’ and ‘misleading’.

“The Zionist War Ministry’s comments are baseless, false, misleading, and an attempt to justify the failures of the regime in the region,” Qasemi said on Monday, as quoted by the Islamic Republic’s News Agency (IRNA).

Qasemi said that the Israeli forces were purposely lying and exaggerating in order to intensify their “psychological warfare to meet their ends.”

“Iran does not have a military base and military presence in Syria and was present at the request of the Syrian government for advisory mission and fighting the terrorists,” Qasemi added.

It’s not what IRGC boss general Salami said last July since he highlighted he had a 100,000 manpower “Islamic Army” ready to Invade Israel from Syria.

What makes IDF strikes rightful is the illegal arming of Hezbollah since UNSC ordered their disarmament in 2006, then Iranian backing/funding/arming of Hezbollah, Hamas and PIJ which are ALL casus belli against Israel.
