A Christian school official in Israel was shocked seeing an Iranian flag has been raised alongside flags of Argentina, Germany, and Spain.
The Israel Education Ministry is investigating who is responsible for hanging an Iranian flag at the Mar Yousef Nazareth Baptist School. But it’s still unclear who is responsible for this and what the intent was.
Police also said that the display of the Iranian flag was “a crime, and we will look into how it came to be flown,” Mashregh news reported.
School principal Dr. Riyad Kamel denied that any of the flags belonged to the school. “We don’t have flags, not of Iran and not of Hizbullah,” he said. “I don’t know who hung the flag without us knowing.”
Some Nazareth residents, who were surprised to see the flag, said this might be an act of incitement, while others didn’t see it as a problem, saying that the school is the one who hung (the flags) as part of its studies about other countries.
