(Worthy News) - Israel is taking six European nations to task for circumventing the Trump administration's sanctions against Iran, pointing to the regime's slaughter of protestors over the last few weeks.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a video released Sunday that Belgium, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden "should be ashamed of themselves" for participating in the INSTEX system that allows countries to trade with Iran.
Israel's foreign ministry added that the 161 protestors Amnesty International reckons to have been killed since fuel demonstrations began in the Islamic Republic on November 15 are "rolling in their graves."
France, Germany, and Britain, who developed the system, praised the decision of the other European nations as a step necessary to preserve the 2015 nuclear accord.
