Iran’s Tasnim News Agency announces the launch of a Hebrew-language website to mark the second anniversary of the killing of top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in a United States drone strike.

The CEO of Tasnim, a semi-official news agency, says in a statement that the Hebrew site was needed to highlight the Palestinian issue, as well as the “massive and systematic censorship of the news about the Zionist regime.”

“Although the number of people speaking Hebrew in the world is not so large, the Tasnim News Agency decided to set up a website in Hebrew language considering the strategic importance that the issue of Palestine has for the Islamic Republic of Iran and for Muslims across the world, and to release reports relating to the issue in that site,” says Majid Qolizadeh in a statement reported by the site.

Qolizadeh says he hoped the site would allow people in Israel to “get informed about the shaky and dark future of usurpation and occupation of the land of a nation and about the crimes against them, and receive more accurate and genuine arguments and capabilities of the Zionist regime’s enemies.”
