Israel knows what Iran is doing with its newfound billions from the lifted sanctions after last July’s nuclear deal with U.S.-led world powers.
Iranian Ambassador to Lebanon Mohammad Fathali announced at a Beirut news conference Wednesday that Tehran will pay $7,000 “to every family of a martyr of the intifada in Jerusalem,” Reuters reported.
In addition, Iran will also offer “$30,000 to every family whose home the Occupation (Israel) has demolished for the participation of one of its sons” in the wave of terror, he said.
Unsurprised, Israel’s Foreign Ministry responded in a statement saying the move “demonstrates Iran’s role in encouraging terror. Following the nuclear agreement, Iran continues to be a major player in international terror,” the statement said.
Earlier in the week, IDF and Border Guard Police forces demolished the homes of two terrorists – both from the Hebron area – who between them murdered and wounded 13 Jews and an Arab.
In the past five months, Arab terrorists from the Palestinian Authority have targeted Israelis in 188 stabbings, 75 shootings and 39 vehicular ramming attacks.
The attackers succeeded in murdering 32 people and wounding 357 others, not all of them Jews. Some were Arabs, caught in the crossfire, some were mistaken for being Jews.Hana Levi Julian
