Ramin Jabbarli, a southern sociologist and cultural activist living in America, made a statement about the attack on the Azerbaijani embassy in Tehran on the morning of January 27.

Axar.az reports that he said that the attack on the embassies was a method of protest and pressure on foreign countries by the Iranian regime.

"A few months after the 1979 Islamic revolution, as the United States did not return Mohammad Reza Shah to Iran, they attacked the American embassy and held 52 American diplomats and citizens, hostage, for 444 days.

In 2011, a group attacked the British embassy in Tehran following the nuclear issue.

In 2016, Saudi Arabia's embassy in Tehran and consulate in Mashhad were attacked by a group protesting the execution of Sheikh Nimr.

Following the tensions that have occurred in recent months, it should be investigated whether Iran repeated the previous examples in a bloodier manner in which the Azerbaijani embassy was subjected to an armed attack," said Ramin Jabbarli.

It should be noted that on January 27, 2023, at around 8:30 am Baku time, there was an armed attack on the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan in the Islamic Republic of Iran. The assailant destroyed the security post with a Kalashnikov automatic weapon and killed the head of the security service. Two security guards of the embassy were also injured while preventing the attack. Their condition is satisfactory.
