In a Facebook video posted to his account on Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Iran's foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to delete his Twitter account.

"See, I'm sure that ordinary Iranians aren't proud when the Revolutionary Guard murders innocent men and women around the globe," Netanyahu said in his video. He continued, pointing to the Revolutionary Guard's actions including "shoot[ing] students in the streets, hang[ing] gays from cranes, and tortur[ing] journalists in prison."

Last week, Zarif tweeted that all "Iranians--boys, girls, men, women--are ALL IRGC," or members of Iran's notorious Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. This followed the decision by the U.S. to impose santions on the Revolutionary Guards.

Zarif's comment was met with a storm of tweets hashtagged with #WeRejectIRGC, calling the Revolutionary Guards terrorists.
