Iran used a Star of David as a target for a missile test last year, the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations revealed Wednesday.
Ambassador Danny Danon shared a startling satellite image of the Jewish and Israeli symbol with members of the UN Security Council, the Jerusalem Post reported.
“This use of the Star of David as target practice is hateful and unacceptable,” Danon told the Council. “This missile test not only violates Security Council resolutions but also proves beyond doubt, once again, the true intentions of Iran to target Israel.”
The Star of David was used as a target for a mid-range Qiam ballistic missile test in December, according to a statement from the Permanent Mission of Israel to the UN.
Alongside the symbol, a round crater caused by the rocket also can be seen.
“The Security Council must act immediately against this demonstration of hate and Iran’s provocative violations that threaten the stability of the entire region,” Danon said.
“It is the Iranians who prop up the Assad regime as hundreds of thousands are killed, finance the terrorists of Hezbollah as they threaten the citizens of Israel, and support extremists and tyrants throughout the Middle East and around the world,” he added.
Earlier this month, Iran fired missiles at Syria, targeting ISIS positions in the first attack by Iran outside its country in 30 years — since the Iran-Iraq war of 1980-1988, the Times of Israel reported.
The missiles were seen as a threat to Israel and the US.
“I have one message for Iran: Don’t threaten Israel,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said after the attack.
Iran has previously fired missiles with anti-Israel messages written on them in Hebrew.
In March 2016, it test-fired two ballistic missiles, which an Iranian news organization said were inscribed with the phrase “Israel must be wiped out.”
