Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu thanked U.S. President Donald Trump for designating Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization on Monday.

“Thank you for accepting another important request of mine, which serves the interests of our countries and countries in the region,” PM Netanyahu said in a tweet.

“We will continue to take action in various means against the Iranian regime, which threatens the State of Israel, the U.S. and world peace.”

Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz (Likud) also hailed the U.S. decision.

“This decision will weaken [Iran’s] ability to promote its nuclear plan and its support for regional terrorism, and will also significantly strengthen Israel’s ability to battle Iranian aggression in Syria and elsewhere,” Katz said in a statement.
