An influential Iranian newspaper has called for killing Israelis following the assassination of a chemistry expert and the director of the Natanz uranium enrichment facility, Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan.
Hossein Shariatmadari, the editor of the Kayhan newspaper, who was appointed by the country’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, asked why Iran is not targeting Israelis. “Israeli military chief Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz in his recent remarks spoke about damaging Iran’s nuclear program,” he wrote. “Assassinations of Israeli military and officials are easily possible.”
According to the Jerusalem Post, Shariatmadari said Iran’s response will reach beyond its border and outside of the region. Those who gave the order for the assassination “will never feel safe.” The Kayhan editor also said Iran has entered “a new era of intelligence operations against its enemies.”
