Referring to protests in Iran following the government’s decision to raise gas prices, Prime Minister Netanyahu contended that “Iran is not only attacking its neighbours and us, Iran is also attacking its citizens. In recent weeks, they have slaughtered hundreds of Iranian citizens. This is a tyrannical regime par excellence, the image and true face of which is now being exposed to the entire world. This is the largest terrorist regime in the world, regarding its own citizens as well”. He went on to urge “all countries around the world that want to achieve peace and stability in our region, and throughout the world in general, to join in the effort and apply more and more pressure on Iran, and, additionally, to support Israel as it takes action against this aggression”. “We have taken action and we will continue to do so”, he added.
