This weekend’s drone attack on an Iranian military site could lead to greater tension and unpredictable consequences for the Middle East, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Monday.
Iranian officials said on Sunday morning that the country’s air defense forces had foiled a raid on an industrial facility in the city of Isfahan. Videos on social media showed an explosion at the site.
“We strongly condemn any provocative action that could lead to an uncontrolled escalation of tensions in an already volatile region,” Zakharova stated.
“Such destructive actions can have unpredictable consequences for peace and stability in the Middle East,” the spokeswoman added. She said that the risks should be understood by those behind the attack, as well as “those who cheer on, with a futile hope of weakening Iran.”
