Iran asked the United States to not interfere in its plans for retaliation against Israel, an Iranian official alleged Friday.

Mohammad Jamshidi, Iran’s deputy chief of staff for political affairs, claimed in a tweet that this exchange occurred.

“In a written message, the Islamic Republic of Iran warned America not to fall into Netanyahu’s trap: step aside so you don’t get hit. In response, America asked Iran not to hit American targets,” Jamshidi tweeted.

The U.S. warned, as opposed to “asked,” Iran not to use this as a pretext to attack U.S. facilities and personnel, a State Dept. spokesperson told the Daily Caller. The spokesperson confirmed that the U.S. did receive a message from Iran but did not specify the message’s contents.

Israel launched a strike Monday near an Iranian embassy near Syria that killed several Iranian military advisors, Reuters reported. Biden did inform Iran that the US had “no involvement in the [Israeli] strike and … did not know about it ahead of time,” according to Axios. Israel only gave the U.S. a warning a few minutes before executing the operation, Axios reported. Iran is preparing a response to the airstrike.
