Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif condemned the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting on his personal Twitter account on Monday, calling it "weaponized demagoguery."
"Extremism and terrorism know no race or religion, and must be condemned in all cases. The world deserves better than to have to live with weaponized demagoguery. Thoughts and prayers with victims of terrorist attack on Pittsburgh synagogue and their loved ones," he wrote in English.
Eleven people were killed after a man opened fire on a Jewish community congregated for Shabbat services on Saturday morning in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, committing the deadliest antisemitic crime in modern American history.
