Israel slams Iranian compensation for Palestinian attackers

Israel's prime minister says that an Iranian offer to compensate the families of Palestinians killed in a wave of Israeli-Palestinian violence proves that Iran continues to "aid terrorism."

Lebanon's state-run National News Agency quoted Iran's ambassador to Lebanon as saying that Iran would pay 7,000 dollars to the families of killed Palestinians. Israel says the majority of the Palestinians killed in the violence were attacking Israelis.

Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday that Iran is continuing to support "terrorism" even after the nuclear deal signed last year. He says: "This is something that the nations of the world must confront and condemn."

Netanyahu was vehemently opposed to last year's nuclear deal, in part because it did not address Iran's support of militant groups opposed to Israel.
