France warns Iran against ‘military provocation’ in Syria

France on Thursday called on Iran to refrain from "any military provocation" in Syria following a series of Israeli strikes.

A foreign ministry spokesman also warned Tehran "against any temptation for regional dominance", a matter that French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian would address in talks with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif next week.

The foreign ministry reiterated France's "unwavering support for Israel's security and condemns all attempts to harm it."

He also called for "restraint by all sides in order to avoid a dangerous escalation of tensions in the Middle East.
