Defense Minister Yoav Gallant hits back at Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei after the ayatollah warns Saudi Arabia against normalizing ties with Israel.

“The murderous terror regime in Iran has succeeded already in tearing apart several countries it controls, and now it is trying to sabotage peace efforts with empty threats,” says Gallant in a statement.

“Iran will continue to act to spread terror and destruction, and Israel to achieve security for its citizens and peace in the Middle East.”
