Seyed Abbas Mousavi, Iran’s ambassador to Azerbaijan, tweeted a death threat to his counterpart, Israeli Ambassador George Deek, The Jerusalem Post reported Thursday evening.

On Wednesday, Mousavi tweeted: “I’m learning so much about Azerbaijani history and culture in Tabriz in this great book I was recently presented. What are you guys reading these days?”

The tweet included a photo of Deek reading a book titled “Magic Tales of Tabriz.”

In response, the Iranian ambassador wrote:

“For the information of this adventurous boy: Our beloved #Tabriz is known as the land of FIRSTS in #Iran’s proud history. Apparently, the FIRST Evil Zionist is going to be buried by the zealous people of Tabriz, too. Never cross our red-line, ever! #IRANTABRIZ”

Ironically, a tweet by Mousavi preceding the threat celebrated peace.

“The I.R. of Iran supports any process/initiative that leads to lasting peace, stability and security in the region,” he wrote.
