John Kerry knew about covert Israeli operations in Syria, according to Iran’s foreign minister: report

In leaked audio, Iran’s foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif┬áreportedly claims that John Kerry knew about 200+ Israeli operations in Syria. At the time Kerry was serving as Sectary of State in the Obama administration.

Currently, Kerry sits on President Biden’s National Security Council as a presidential convoy for the climate. Zarif has been the Iranian foreign minister for the past eight years.

Then, it reportedly shocked Zarif to know that Israel had attacked Iranian targets in Syria upwards of 200 times. The New York Times and other outlets obtained the leaked audio.

After the leak, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh acknowledged that the audio was authentic. He told journalists on Monday that the recording was a small part of a seven-hour interview Zarif gave to a well-known economist.

But Khatibzadeh also called the audio’s release “illegal” and “selectively” edited. He did not have a theory on who leaked the audio or how it got out.
