Netanyahu offers help to victims of Iran-Iraq earthquake

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he has made offers to Iraq and Iran to provide aid following a devastating earthquake that struck the border and killed hundreds.


"Now I just saw the pictures of the destruction in Iran and Iraq following this week's earthquake. And I saw these heartbreaking images

of men and women and children buried under the rubble. A few hours ago I directed that we offer the Red Cross medical assistance for the Iraqi and Iranian victims of this disaster," Netanyahu said. 


"Now you heard me right. I've said many times that we have no quarrel with the people of Iran. Our quarrel is only with the tyrannical regime that holds them hostage and threatens our destruction. But our humanity is greater than their hatred."
