A senior Iranian lawmaker has warned that any potential military attack on Syria will put the Israeli regime’s security in jeopardy.

The Israeli regime will be the main loser of any military action in Syria, Chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Alaeddin Boroujerdi said at a press conference in Damascus on Sunday after a meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

He added that Tel Aviv has so far been defeated four times by the resistance and emphasized that it would suffer a fifth defeat if it launches another war.

“Military attack on Syria will set the entire Middle East region ablaze and will put the security of the Zionist regime [of Israel] in jeopardy,” the Iranian lawmaker stated.

He once again reiterated the necessity of resolving the unrest in Syria through political approaches and accused the United States of creating and supporting terrorism in the region.

Boroujerdi emphasized that the crisis in Syria should be resolved through a “Syrian-Syrian political solution.”

He noted that Washington has adopted a wrong stance on Syria since the outbreak of crisis in the Arab country.

“Instead of fanning the flames [of conflict], the US should choose a political solution to the crisis in Syria,” the Iranian parliamentarian added.

Despite its claims, the US has spread terrorism in the region, he said, noting that the era of changing governments through military power has reached an end.

On August 31, US President Barack Obama said he has decided to launch military strike against Syria, adding that he would seek authorization for military action from Congress after lawmakers return from recess on September 9.

The call for military action against Syria intensified after foreign-backed opposition forces accused the government of President Assad of launching a chemical attack on militant strongholds in the suburbs of Damascus on August 21, killing hundreds.
