UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres condemned Tuesday a strike on an Iranian consular annex building in Syria one day earlier, his spokesman said, after the attack — which Tehran has blamed on Israel — killed at least 13 people.

“The Secretary-General reaffirms that the principle of the inviolability of diplomatic and consular premises and personnel must be respected in all cases in accordance with international law,” spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.
