Assyrian MP: Netanyahu after Psychological War against Iran
TEHRAN (FNA)- Representative of Iranian Assyrians at the Parliament Yonatan Betkolia blasted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his video message on water shortage in Iran, describing it as a psychological operation by the Zionist regime.
"The prime minister of the usurper regime of Israel is denying water to Palestinians, he cannot advise our people how to address their water problem," Betkolia said on Monday.
"Netanyahu is better to offer his plans to his regional allies and friends that are helping him to destabilize and make insecure the region," he said.
The lawmaker said that the Iranian people know very well that the Zionist prime minister, by taking such deceitful approaches, is looking for starting a psychological war.
Similar to their other issues, the Iranian people will manage to resolve the issue of water shortage in the country, Betkolia said.
In a video address published on his official YouTube channel earlier this month, Netanyahu announced that Israel has created a special website in Farsi dedicated to projects related to water resources management, water conservation and other issues such as irrigation for the Iranians to learn from it.
After his message, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi blasted the crimes committed by Israel against the Palestinian people, and said Tehran does not need Netanyahu's "magic tricks" to resolve water shortage problem.
Qassemi blasted his remarks, calling Netanyahu a "deceitful showman" whose comments should not be taken seriously.
"It is not the first time that he makes such remarks. He had better stop massacre of the Palestinian people and crimes which are committed every day," he added.
Qassemi underlined that the Iranian people and government are capable enough to resolve their problems and "they do not need such magic tricks".
He added that Netanyahu's "childish behavior" can be the result of his failure to attract support of the three European countries for the US withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.
