Two clerics incited zealous anti-American and anti-Israeli sentiment among hundreds of young girls attending a television recording in Iran by them to “fight” the two states Iran’s government considers enemies.

A clip of the show was shared on social media and sparked outrage among many Iranians. 

"We must fight. Fight. Fight. Fight," one of the clerics told the schoolgirls, who were dressed entirely in white and who echoed his words amidst applause from onlookers.

Another cleric emphasized the importance of focusing the fight on the Islamic Republic’s “enemies.”

"Indeed, we should fight against America and Israel," the cleric said. 

"Death to America. Death to Israel. Esmail, strike them!" he said, in reference to Esmail Qaani, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps's expeditionary Quds Force.
