The IDF posted a comic photo on their official Twitter page on Monday afternoon depicting a map of the Middle East, explaining "where Iran belongs" in contrast to where they are, referring to the Iranian settlement in Damascus from which a missile was fired at Israel earlier in the week.
“The firing of the missile yesterday – a launch that could have killed civilians – was fired by Iranians out of Damascus within an area that we were promised that there would be no Iranians,” IDF spokesman Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis told reporters on Monday.
The IDF, in response, released a post on their Twitter page on Monday afternoon with a map pointing out in the playful font Comic Sans where Iran is in contrast to where it should be.
This is not the first time official Israeli agencies have been trolls online.
In June 2018, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei wrote on Twitter that Israel "is a malignant cancerous tumor in the West Asian region that has to be removed and eradicated."
The Israeli embassy in the US responded with a GIF image of the famous movie Mean Girls in which one character asks, "Why are you so obsessed with me?"
