Just prior to his speech at the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, Iranian President Hasan Rouhani took part in his country’s military parade, which included trucks carrying Shahab-3 missiles and signs calling for the destruction of Israel.

This information was revealed by former Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. and Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs President Dore Gold.

In pictures of the parade, which took place at the beginning of the week, it can be clearly seen that the first truck carrying Shahab-3 missiles is also carrying a sign that reads in Farsi, “Israel must cease to exist.”

According to Gold, “The fact that Rouhani is presenting positive messages in New York, and at the same time taking part in an event that called for the destruction of Israel, should raise a red flag to the West.”
