Iran-Israel Conflict LIVE Updates: At UN, Israel Urges 'All Possible Sanctions' Against Iran

Iran-Israel LIVE: “The Security Council failed in its duty to maintain peace and security.”

Iran-Israel Conflict LIVE Updates: Israel’s UN envoy on Sunday urged the Security Council to impose “all possible sanctions” against Iran after the Islamic republic’s unprecedented attack against Israel.

“Today the council must take action (and) condemn Iran for their terror,” Ambassador Gilad Erdan told the body, calling on countries to “impose all possible sanctions on Iran before it’s too late.”

Iran’s United Nations envoy told the Security Council Sunday that the Islamic republic was exercising its “inherent right to self-defense” in its unprecedented attack on Israel. 

“The Security Council… failed in its duty to maintain international peace and security” after Israel’s apparent strike on an Iranian consulate in Damascus earlier this month, Amir Saeid Iravani said. 

Therefore, Tehran “had no choice” but to respond, he said, adding that his country does “not seek escalation or war,” but will respond to any “threat or aggression.”

UN Chief Calls For Maximum Restraint After Iran’s Attack On Israel

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Sunday issued a reminder that acts of reprisal involving the use of force are barred under international law after Iran’s attack on Israel, while the U.S. warned the Security Council it would work to hold Tehran accountable at the U.N.

Iran launched a swarm of explosive drones and fired missiles on Saturday in its first-ever direct attack on Israeli territory, risking a major escalation.
