Iran says 'Americans and Zionists' behind Syrian protests

Iran considers the anti-government demonstrations taking place across Syria which have seen at least 300 protesters killed part of a plot by the West to undermine a "resistance"-supporting government led by Bashar al-Assad, Beirut based The Daily Star reported Tuesday.
According to The Daily Star, while Iran was quick to laud anti-regime demonstrations in countries like Tunisia or Egypt, both considered western-backed, the government in Tehran was slow in issuing comments on the Syrian situation.
At his weekly news conference, the Iranian regime's spokesperson said that the Syrian protests are a result of foreign interference.
The spokesperson went on to blame "Americans and Zionists" for partaking in the "mischievous act" of inciting anti-government sentiment among Syrians, the Daily Star reported, adding "no one should be fooled by this trick that Americans are playing.”
