Israeli prime minister says election of new Iranian president shows world powers should reject deal with Tehran

01:10

Israel’s Prime Minister Naftali Bennett labelled the newly elected Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi the “hangman of Tehran” during a cabinet meeting. Raisi is under U.S. sanctions for sentencing thousands of political prisoners to death in 1988. Bennett said the election should serve as a warning to world powers not to strike a deal with Iran on nuclear weapons.
