Israel Katz Says Iran Results Send ‘Clear Message’ to Ayatollahs

Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz has commented on the victory of reformist Masoud Pezeshkian in Iran’s presidential elections, interpreting it as a significant setback for the country’s Islamist leadership.

In a statement posted on the social network X, Katz said: “The Iranian people have sent a clear message of demand for change and opposition to the ayatollahs’ regime through these elections.”

Taking advantage of this political moment, the Israeli minister urged the international community to step up pressure on Iran. In particular, he called for two concrete actions: designating the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization and demanding the cancellation of Iran’s nuclear program and the cessation of support for terrorist organizations. Katz stressed the importance of these steps, saying: “This is the only chance to make change happen.”

This Israeli reaction to the Iranian election comes in the context of the ongoing tensions between the two countries. The victory of a reformist candidate in Iran is seen by Israel as an opportunity for change in Tehran’s regional and international politics. However, it remains to be seen how this election will actually influence Iran’s domestic and foreign policy, and whether the international community will respond to Israel’s call for stronger action against the Iranian regime.

This statement by Minister Katz reflects Israel’s consistent position, which considers Iran a major threat to its security and regional stability. It also underlines Israel’s willingness to seize any opportunity to influence international policy toward Iran.
