The other importance of this news was that the most senior military advisers of Iran and several Syrian citizens and a Lebanese citizen were present in the consular section, as a result of this attack, Nael was martyred. They came.

What makes this event more important from the media point of view is the conditions of the Zionist regime, the location of the attack and the time of the attack.
