CBNNews.com - At a special ceremony in Teheran Sunday, a youth terror cell calling itself Islamic Student Justice Seekers put a bounty on the heads of three top Israeli security officials.
IRNA, Iran's state news agency, carried the group's announcement, which offers a reward for assassinating Israeli Foreign Minister Ehud Barak, Mossad chief Meir Dagan, and Major General Amos Yadlin, head of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF)Military Intelligence.
"Following the increase in crimes by the Zionist regime in occupied Palestine and in the Gaza Strip and in the wake of the assassination that this regime carried out abroad of senior members of the resistance front, a ceremony will be held today to set a financial prize for the killing of the organizers of these acts," read the statement.
"The prizes will be given to those who succeed in killing these three international terrorists any place in the world," the Islamic students' statement declared.
The group holds the three top Israeli officials responsible for the death of arch-terrorist Imad Mugniyeh, second in command of the Lebanese-based and Iranian-sponsored Hezbollah terror group, killed by a car bomb in an upscale neighborhood in Beirut on February 12.
New Meaning to Organ Donation
To raise funds for the bounty, the students called on Iranians to donate a kidney.
The student terror cell is affiliated with another Teheran-based terror group calling itself The Martyrs' Commemoration Headquarters, which is in the throes of creating a monument to Mugniyeh in the Islamic nation's capital.
Iran Presents Mugniyeh Stamp
Meanwhile, at an official state ceremony Monday, Iran presented a new postal stamp honoring Mugniyeh, which will serve as "a cultural message of support from the Iranian people to the Lebanese nation against the crimes of the Zionist regime," the Islamic state's Fars news agency wrote.
The ceremony was attended by leaders of Iran's Revolutionary Guard, the country's communications minister, members of Hamas and Hezbollah and family of Lebanese killed in the Second Lebanon War in the summer of 2006.
