Are the Violations of Mexican and Iranian Embassies a Sign of a ‘New Normal’ in Diplomatic Relations?

By Derrick Broze

Recent actions taken by both the Israeli and Ecuadorian governments have called into question the sovereignty and sanctity of international embassies.

On April 1st, Israel launched missiles at the Iranian consulate in Damascus, Syria, killing seven military advisers, including a high-profile leader of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). Iran’s ambassador to Syria noted that the strike hit a consulate building in the embassy compound.

Iran’s U.N. mission called the attack a “flagrant violation of the United Nations Charter, international law, and the foundational principle of the inviolability of diplomatic and consular premises.”

The Israeli strike killed Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Zahedi, a veteran commander of the Quds Force, the IRGC foreign operations unit in Syria and Lebanon.

On Sunday, Yahya Rahim Safavi, senior adviser to Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, stated that, “The embassies of the Zionist regime are no longer safe.” Despite these statements, it remains to be seen what type of action Iran might take in retaliation.

Israel’s bombing of the embassy is part of a recent escalation of airstrikes against Iran’s IRGC and the Iran-supported Lebanese armed group, Hezbollah. Israel has stated they are attempting to disrupt Iran’s support for Hezbollah.
