US, UK, France do not condemn Israeli attack in Syria at UNSC

In an emergency session of the UNSC on Tuesday, the majority of diplomats condemned Israel, saying that it had violated international laws and breached the UN charter that protects diplomatic premises when it bombed an Iranian diplomatic compound in Syria. The US, France and Britain did not condemn Israel, but they joined other nations in reiterating that diplomatic structures should be considered off limits during wartime and that the air strikes, on Monday in Damascus, the Syrian capital, had risked plunging West Asia into further instability.
“Any miscalculation could lead to broader conflict in an already volatile region, with devastating consequences for civilians,” Khaled Khiari, the UN assistant secretary general, told the Council. Russia, a close ally of Iran, had called for the meeting to discuss Israel’s attack, after Iran’s mission to the UN submitted a letter to the world body arguing the air strikes had violated international law.
