Iran conducted missile tests last year using a Star of David as a target.

Israel provided proof of the incident from satellite images of the missile test on the Star of David last year, the images showing a massive Star of David painted into the ground outside of a Revolutionary Guard Army base.

The missile test was a direct violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231.

Israel officially reported the incident to the Security Council Wednesday, Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations submitting an official complaint.

In his complaint he stated that the “use of the Star of David as target practice is hateful and unacceptable. The missile launch is not only a direct violation of UNSCR 2231, but is also a clear evidence of Iran’s continued intention to harm the State of Israel…”

He called on the council to recognize Iran and Hezbollah’s terrorism in the Middle East, stating “The targeting of a sacred symbol of Judaism is abhorrent. It is the Iranians who prop up the Assad regime as hundreds of thousands are killed, finance the terrorists of Hezbollah as they threaten the citizens of Israel, and support extremists and tyrants throughout the Middle East and around the world. I call on the Security Council to respond decisively to these Iranian violations and provocations.”
