The State of Israel hails the “defeat of the Islamic Republic” of Iran in a Persian-language tweet, referring not to the downfall of the country but the crushing loss by its soccer team in the World Cup today.
Earlier today, Iran’s national team faced England in Qatar, going down to a heavy 6-2 defeat.
In its tweet, the State of Israel’s Persian-language Twitter account includes the hashtag “#Mahsa_Amini,” referring to the 22-year-old Kurdish-Iranian woman who was killed by Iranian religious morality police and whose death sparked ongoing nationwide protests in Iran.
شکست جمهوری اسلامی #مهسا_امینی
