TEHRAN, Feb. 4 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Majlis (parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani condemned recent Israeli attack on Syria, saying Tel Aviv must not be allowed to carry on with its acts of aggression against regional countries, Press TV reported on Monday.
In a phone conversation with Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berry on Monday, Larijani said, "Israel must not be allowed to continue its aggressive measures against regional countries by taking advantage of the current situation in Syria."
His remarks came against the backdrop of the Israeli airstrike that hit a Syrian military research center in the Jumraia suburb of the capital Damascus last Wednesday.
"The issue of Palestine is still the main priority for the Muslim world and despite the situation in the region, Muslim nations will continue their support for the oppressed people of Palestine against the Israeli regime," Larijani was quoted as saying.
For his part, Berry also condemned Israel's attack against Syria and said the crisis in the Arab state is an attempt to weaken the resistance front against Tel Aviv and in line with the Israeli regime's interests.
