US Coordinator for Counter-Terrorism, Nathan Sales, recently visited Israel and toured areas around the Gaza fence, Ynet News reported yesterday, noting that Iran is the mastermind of terror in the region.

Sales hailed US President Donald Trump’s designation of the Iran’s Revolutionary Guards as a terror group.

He warned that as a result of US policy on Iran, “anyone doing business with them will be suspected of funding terror.”

During his tour of the Israel-Gaza fence Sales said: “I was amazed at the resources Hamas is investing in terror activity against Israel.”

Hamas, he continued spending a lot of money on “terror” activities at the expense of investing in health, education, and housing which are vital for improving civilian lives.
