Netanyahu Twitter Removes and Corrects Post About ‘War With Iran’ After Mini Panic

A Twitter thread sharing a statement from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, posted on his official English-language account, was taken down and corrected over a line about “war with Iran.”

Netanyahu put out a statement after his meeting with Oman’s Minister Responsible for Foreign Affairs and, in the original thread posted to Twitter in English, Netanyahu said that it’s “an open meeting with representatives of leading Arab countries, that are sitting down together with Israel in order to advance the common interest of war with Iran.”

The tweet took a lot of people by surprise…

…but the thread was taken down and reposted, now saying “combating Iran” instead of “war with Iran”:
