Planting bugs and cameras as we speak,the turks are under orders for the upcoming assault on iran,for the iranians to accept this on face value would be crazy! Besides,isnt the embassy protected? Only a vehicle borne ied could do enough damage and surely the security around such a sensitive building in such a hostile country is capable of negating such an attack?!.

Khamenei, Tamim al-Thani and Erdogan are all into the Muslim-Brotherhood.
Do not believe them to be hostile towards each other : it’s just taqiyya to deceive the kuffar 😉 They’re all in bed together.

Usually, Iran doesn’t threatens to blow embassies : they send their Hizbullshit lapdog and the embassy ends demolished by a SVBIED-truck loaded with tons of explosives…
This is how coward regimes “fight”.
