BEIRUT (Reuters) -- Iran told Israel on Monday it would regret its air strike against Syria last week, without spelling out whether Iran or its ally planned any military response.

"They will regret this recent aggression," Saeed Jalili, Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, told a news conference in Damascus a day after holding talks there with President Bashar Assad.

Jalili likened Israel's attack on a military compound north-west of Damascus on Wednesday to previous conflicts including its 34-day war with Lebanon's Shiite militant group Hezbollah in 2006, all battles that he said Israel had lived to regret.

"Today, too, both the people and the government of Syria are serious regarding the issue. And also the Islamic community is supporting Syria," he said.

Jalili said Iran, in its current role as head of the Non-Aligned Movement, would work on Syria's behalf on the international stage in response to the attack.

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Sunday the attack on a Syrian arms complex showed Israel was serious about preventing the flow of heavy weapons into Lebanon, appearing to acknowledge for the first time that Israel had carried out the strike.

Diplomats, Syrian rebels and security sources say Israeli jets bombed a convoy near the Lebanese border, apparently hitting weapons destined for Hezbollah.

- Perhaps in some small way, and perhaps in the future, as Iran says "Israel will regret the air strike," that prevented to flow of Syria's advanced rockets to the Hezbollah, that has rained 1,000s of rockets onto Israeli cities, but
- Definitely the Immediate benefit of the strike far out-weighs the possibility of some future attack, that is likely to fail anyway !!

Unless they are directly involved, it is none of Iran's business.

I think Israel is a deceit. Israel has never since the war in Syria started made any effort to stopping the war, it has only interest in her safety, and where one only thinks about a self interest, such regrets the action. I think Iran is right. Isra?l should focus on strenghtening her defence rather than fearful of baseless arms transit to Lebanon. . . .crave for peace not violence.

Meddlers. It was Israel and Syria and thus none of Iran's business.
