Imam Reza Shrine’s black flag is declaration of Iran’s war on Israel?
Millions of people have seen posts on X, formerly Twitter, featuring a black flag flying above the tomb of a shrine in Iran.
User Jackson Hinkle claimed that the raising of black flag on the shrine means “call for war of vengeance.
