In an unusual move, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced that Israel will share information with Iran on how to desalinate water and recycle wastewater.
Netanyahu said in a new video that the Iran is suffering from a permanent drought that could lead to an environmental catastrophe, adding that Israel can “help save countless Iranian lives” by sharing its cutting-edge water technology with Iranian farmers.
“Millions of Iranian children are suffering due to mismanagement, incompetence and the theft of vital resources by the Iranian regime,” Netanyahu said. “Israel has the knowhow to prevent environmental catastrophe in Iran.”
“I want to share this information with the people of Iran. Sadly, Iran bans Israelis from visiting, so we’ll have to get creative,” he added. “We will launch a Farsi website with detailed plans on how Iranians can recycle their wastewater.”
