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


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.
