MEA Spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal said, "We are seriously concerned at the escalation of hostilities between Israel and Iran which threatens the peace and security in the region."

"We call for immediate de-escalation, exercise of restraint, stepping back from violence and return to the path of diplomacy", the statement read.

"We are closely monitoring the evolving situation. Our Embassies in the region are in close touch with Indian community. It is vital that security and stability are maintained in the region", Jaiswal further added.

During Sunday's attack, Iran launched over two hundred missiles and explosive drones targeting Israel which invited criticism from the United Nations and several other countries including the United Kingdom, Germany, and France.
