Israel calls for tougher stance on Iran following elections

Israel's Prime Minister Naftali Bennett (pictured) stated on Monday that the election of Ebrahim Raisi as Iran's new president is a signal for world powers to wake up and take a tougher stance on the country.

Bennett asserted that the West needs to understand who they are doing business with, saying that this was the "last chance" to reconsider before returning to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Additionally, he asserted that Israel's stance towards the country will not change and emphasized that a "regime of brutal hangmen must never be allowed to have weapons of mass destruction."

Earlier, the United States also criticized the election in Iran, saying that its citizens were "denied the right to choose their leader," as the country got blamed for breaking the JCPOA.
