Iran’s state news agency over the weekend released images showing soldiers using effigies of President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for target practice.
The news agency, Tasmin, Tweeted the link to its story, and the thumbnail shows a photo of Netanyahu riddled with bullets.
The article itself has several more graphic images of President Trump and Bibi Netanyahu’s bodies riddled with bullet holes from target practice.
“The exercise ‘was intended to assess the readiness and skills of the participants in shooting and in a number of different situations on the battlefield,’ according to Tasnim,” Jerusalem Post said.
It was also a competition for elite marksmen.
“The soldiers’ training included marksmanship at 100 and 200 meters, as well as sniper training and night shooting,” JPost said. “One hundred soldiers began the program, but only 20 managed to make it to the final stage of the training.”
The photos surfaced amid increasing tension in the Middle East.
Last week, Iran seized a British oil tanker in the Straight of Hormuz. On Monday, British Prime Minister Theresa May demanded the release of the crew.
“May’s official spokesman, James Slack, said Iran seized the ship under false and illegal pretenses and it needs to release it and its crew immediately. Iranian officials have suggested the seizure was in response to Britain’s role in seizing an Iranian oil tanker two week earlier,” according to AP.
Iran released a video of the ship’s crew in order to prove that they had not been harmed. On Monday, Iran claimed that it had arrested 17 spies who they claim are members of a CIA spy ring. President Trump took to Twitter to refute the Iranian’s claims, saying it wasn’t true.
