Netanyahu Wants War to ‘Stay in Power’: Turkish FM
Speaking in Qatar, Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan blamed Netanyahu for seeking war for political gain in the wake of a retailatory attack by Iran.

“It is clear that Netanyahu is trying to drag the region into war to stay in power,” Fidan said.

He called on allies of the Israeli regime to constrain further action, Al Jazeera reported.

The Israeli regime attacked Iran's consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus on April 1. The Israeli aggression led to the destruction of the entire building and the martyrdom and injury of the entire people inside it.

Seven of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) military advisors were martyred following the Israeli attack on Iran's consulate in Damascus, IRGC said in a statement.

In response to the Israeli aggression, Iran attacked the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories with a barrage of drones and missiles early on Sunday.

Following the attack, Iran announced that it does not seek to create tension in the region and had carried out the anti-Zionist operation to punish the Zionist regime. However, the Iranian political and military officials have strongly warned that the country would give a severe response in case of any fresh Israeli aggression.
