Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has reportedly donated funds to the country's sole Jewish hospital.

Rouhani purportedly donated $400,000 to Iran's Dr. Sapir Hospital, New York Time's Tehran bureau chief Thomas Erdbrink said Thursday on Twitter citing Iran's semi-official Mehr news agency. Meanwhile, Iran's official IRNA news agency reported that Rouhani had contributed $170,000 to the hospital.

Iran's Jewish population is said to consist of some 25,000 people.
