Iran has accused Israel of 'committing crimes' in Syria and has said Tel Aviv is trying to destabilize the already turbulent country further.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast blamed 'foreign actors' for the recent massacre of the Syrian people in Houla, and said Israel is involved 'in any crime committed in Syria' because Israel would benefit from insecurity and turmoil in its Muslim Arab neighbour.
"We palpably feel the Zionist regime's hand in Syria's internal developments," Mehman-Parast said in his weekly press conference in Tehran on Tuesday.
FARS reported that the Foreign Ministry spokesmen claimed that "Any crime committed (in Syria) can be traced back to the regime's hirelings."
Iran has criticised the 6-point plan proposed by the UN-Arab League envoy, Kofi Annan. Mr Mehman-Parast added that "The Zionist regime's backers aspire to the failure of Annan's plan."
