Iran has threatened Greece over its possible participation in a military operation of the USA. It is reported by The Jerusalem Post.
The newspaper writes that the warning came at the Iranian Embassy in Athens. The letter was a response to the article in one of the Greek editions, published last week. It said that Greece will take “some part” in operations against Iran, if it will start. It was also noted that Athens will not be able to help Washington military ships “because of the difficult situation in the Mediterranean”.
The Iranian Embassy said then that Tehran will respond to any country that will take part in the us operations. While the diplomatic mission stressed that, traditionally, Iran and Greece maintained warm and friendly relations. “We believe that [it] could not represent the official position of Athens” — quoted by the Embassy to The Jerusalem Post.
On the night of 8 January, Iran launched a missile strike on military targets in Iraq. It was a response to the death in Baghdad in the airstrike, the US commander of special forces “al-Quds” major General Qassem Soleimani. The operation was called “Martyr Soleimani”. It was reported that Tehran has deliberately missed the target, with a missile attack on American bases. Soldiers allegedly warned in advance about a future attack that they managed to hide. In addition, a significant part of the missile fell away from the goals.
