Iran's foreign ministry claimed Monday that Israel somehow benefited from the recent ISIS decapitations of Egyptian Christians in Libya.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham told a group of journalists at a weekly press conference that "this latest act of terror in Libya against Coptic Egyptians serves the Zionist entity."

"It is important to be aware of the schemes that are causing extremist terror to flourish in the region."

Afkham expressed her condolences to the families of those murdered and said that she joins the Egyptian people and the government in mourning.
