The Portuguese Prime Minister today condemned Iran’s ongoing attack on Israel, calling for restraint in hostilities to “avoid an escalation of violence”.

In a message posted on his profile on the social network X, Luís Montenegro said that “the Portuguese government strongly condemns Iran’s attack on Israel”.

The executive led by the Social Democrat “calls for restraint in order to avoid an escalation of violence”.

Iran launched a drone attack against Israel “from its territory” today, the Israeli army spokesman confirmed in a televised speech.

“Iran launched drones from its territory towards Israel,” said Daniel Hagari shortly after 23:00 (20:00 GMT).

In a message on the X network, the Iranian mission to the UN claimed that “in accordance with Article 51 of the UN Charter on self-defense, Iran’s military action was a response to the Zionist regime’s aggression” against Iranian diplomatic facilities in Damascus.

“The case can be considered closed. However, if the Israeli regime makes a mistake again, Iran’s response will be considerably more severe,” warned the Iranian diplomatic representation at the United Nations.

Tensions between the two countries have risen in recent weeks following the bombing of the Iranian consulate in Damascus on April 1, in which seven members of the Revolutionary Guard and six Syrian citizens died.
