'Israel to open Iranian embassy' reads Tel Aviv billboard

August 25, 2015 05:46

A photo of a billboard reportedly hung in an undisclosed location in Tel Aviv has gone viral, proclaiming the opening of an Iranian embassy in Israel, the Facebook page "Israel-Loves-Iran" posted on Sunday. The caption above the photo reads "Tel Aviv today. No Photoshop."

It is unclear who put up the billboard or if the billboard is actually a hoax.

Comments on the Israel-Loves-Iran page suggested that the billboard is an art installation, indicating desire by the Israeli public to reignite relations with Iran. Other commenters hypothesize that the billboard is a satirical message in response to support given by foreign bodies towards the nuclear deal with Iran, and should not be taken literally.

Both Israelis and Iranians who commented on the photo seemed optimistic of increased positive relations between the two nations.
