Iran is using “its terrorist proxy Palestinian Islamic Jihad” to attack Israel, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted.
“Iran uses its terrorist proxy Palestinian Islamic Jihad to strike our great ally Israel. Iran does not want peace in the region. It does not want the Palestinian people to prosper. It wants more conflict. Until we address Iran’s threats, the cycle of violence will continue,” he said.
Pompeo added that the next move is continued pressure until Iran negotiates a comprehensive agreement “that includes halting its support to terror groups like PIJ.”
“Nations around the world can no longer claim to want peace in the region yet allow Iran’s threats to go unchallenged,” Secretary of State added.Pom
