Syria is at war with "an axis of evil shaped in Washington and Tel Aviv," Syrian Ambassador to Iran Hamed Hassan was quoted as saying by Iran's Fars News Agency on Monday.

Speaking at a conference on Syria held in Tehran, Hassan claimed the unrest in Syria was a plot "aimed at hitting a blow at the Syrian nation and government because Syria has always been part of the axis of resistance and opposed the role of the US and the Zionist regime which seek hegemony over the region."

Hassan called "the Zionist regime" the main threat to regional peace, accusing Israel of seeking to sow sectarian strife and ethnic discord in the region, according to Fars.
