Three Iranians were killed in air strike on Syrian air base

The two sides stressed the need for increasing coordination and consultations between Iran and Syria to face terrorism and its supporters and to confront the hostile provocations and threats by Israel, the United States, and their allies and pawns in the region.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov described the strike as "a risky development" in the Syrian civil war with the Foreign Ministry in Moscow requesting time with Israel's ambassador to Russia, Gary Koren.

Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif hit back at US President Donald Trump, who has said Russian Federation and Iran share the blame for an alleged chemical attack in a rebel-held town in Syria.

On Monday, Iran identified four of the killed, including a Revolutionary Guard colonel.

Following an air strike on the Syrian Tiyas Military Airbase on Monday, subsequently attributed to the Israeli military, Iran's Ali Akbar Velayati issued several threats targeting Israel.

"We will stand by Syria's government against any foreign aggression", Velayati said, adding that Tehran backs Damascus in its fight against the U.S. and Israel.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called the strike on the base a "very unsafe development".

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi condemned the attack, calling it "an obvious breach of global laws that would make the Syrian crisis and regional equations more complicated".

Damascus, in a statement released late on Saturday, strongly rejected the allegation of using chemical munitions and said that the so-called Jaish al-Islam Takfiri terrorist group, which has dominant presence in Douma, was repeating the accusations "in order to accuse the Syrian Arab army, in a blatant attempt to hinder the Army's advance". Israeli officials refused to comment on the strike. Syria's government has denied any involvement in that attack. Interfax news agency cited the Russian Defence Ministry as saying Syrian air defence systems had shot down five of eight missiles fired.

Velayati was quoted by the country's state-run news agency IRNA.
