Speaking at a press conference Monday at the Iranian embassy in Damascus, Jalili said that as Israel had regretted previous wars and aggressions, it will also regret its attack on Wednesday, adding that the Syrian government and people are serious in that regard.

His remarks came against the backdrop of the Israeli airstrike that hit a Syrian military research center in the Jumraia suburb of the capital Damascus on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Jalili, who arrived in Syria on Saturday to discuss the Israeli attack, said that Iran will capitalize on all its relationships in the international circles to support Syria, adding Syria is an important part of the Islamic world, which " will never permit any aggression on it."

The Israeli attack "has proven its failure to stir up internal differences in Syria," he said. "The Zionist enemy, its allies and tools are trying to hit the resistance in the area" as they have realized that there is a "genuine chance for a unity around the idea of resistance."

Jalili pointed out that Syria is espousing the path of resistance and has defended its causes "and subsequently it would be an aim for the enemies who will go on with avenging it."

On the crisis in Syria, Jalili reasserted that the solution for the crisis in Syria can only be "Syrian," emphasizing the " democratic means and national dialogue" as the way out.

"We have stressed, from the very beginning, that terrorism and violence could not be conducive to bringing in stability in this country," he said, adding that supporting the Syrian people could not be done through undermining the infrastructure but rather through national dialogue.
