FM Spokesman Rejects Attack on Iranian Embassy in Beirut

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Araqchi dismissed the media reports about an attack on the Iranian Embassy in Beirut as "untrue".



"A small group gathered in front of Iran's Embassy in Beirut and was dispersed by the security forces," Araqchi said.

He noted that clashes erupted between Takfiris and the supporters of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad near the Iranian Embassy in Beirut, but ended with the mediation of the Lebanese army.

Yesterday, an informed source at the Iranian Embassy in Lebanon, who asked to remain anonymous, told FNA in Beirut that no clashes had erupted in front of the embassy.

The Al-Arabiya television in breaking news had claimed that several protesters were injured in a shooting incident in front of the Iranian Embassy in Beirut.

Meantime, an eye witness said that a group of Takfiris gathered near the Iranian Embassy in Beirut after they sustained heavy losses from the Syrian army in al-Qusseir border town near Lebanon a few days ago.

On May 19, the Syrian Army launched a large-scale operation in al-Qusseir to clear the area of terrorist gangs and liberate the citizens stuck there.

Syria's mercenaries conceded on Tuesday they had lost the battle for al-Qusseir.
