Iran has signaled to Washington that it will respond to Israel’s purported attack on its Syrian embassy in a way that aims to avoid major escalation and it will not act hastily, Iranian sources say.

Iran’s message to Washington was conveyed by Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian during a visit on Sunday to the Gulf Arab state of Oman, which has often acted as an intermediary between Tehran and Washington, the sources say.

A source familiar with US intelligence was not aware of the message conveyed via Oman, but says Iran has “been very clear” that its response to the attack on its Damascus embassy compound would be “controlled” and “non-escalatory” and planned “to use regional proxies to launch a number of attacks on Israel.”
