BEIJING, March 7. /ITAR-TASS/. Head of Iranian Foreign Ministry Mohammad Javad Zarif dismissed Israel’s statement that Tehran was carrying Syrian missiles to Gaza Strip. Chinese Xinhua news agency reported this on Friday. According to the report, Zarif told a news conference in Jakarta, where he is currently on a visit, that the accusations from the Israel are false and do not reflect reality.
“Today, Syria badly needs arms, therefore it would be inconsecutive for its part to export arms to other countries,” Xinhua news agency quotes the Iranian foreign minister as saying.
On Wednesday, March 5, in Los Angeles, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed that “Israel’s Naval Forces out at sea intercepted a ship stuffed with contraband from Iran destined for terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip”. “Iran has shown its true colors: Tehran smiles in Geneva over its nuclear ambitions and makes a soothing statement, while sending deadly weapons to terrorists,” Netanyahu told journalists. He specified that the operation of intercepting the ship flying the flag of Panama had two goals: to prevent from supplying arms to Gaza Strip and “to reveal the true colors of Iran”. Head of the Israeli government stressed that “ a country like Iran that supplies weapons to Hamas and other terrorist organizations cannot be allowed to have its own nuclear weapons”.
