Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who faces a tough reelection amid corruption allegations, thanked President Trump for labeling Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as a foreign terrorist organization and said he asked for the designation.

“Thank you, my dear friend, President Donald Trump, for having decided to announce Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization,” Netanyahu said in a tweet in Hebrew on Monday, according to The Washington Post

“Thank you for the answer to another important request that serves the interests of our country and the region,” he continued.

In another tweet written in English, the prime minister omitted the reference to a “request,” but said of the president: “Once again you are keeping the world safe from Iran aggression and terrorism.”

Trump’s announcement of the designation on Monday has been widely seen as an effort to boost Netanyahu in Tuesday’s election.

In a tweet on Sunday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif warned the decision would drag the U.S. into a “quagmire.”

“#NetanyahuFirsters who have long agitated for [foreign terrorist organization] designation of the [Guard] fully understand its consequences for US forces in the region,” he said in a tweet. “In fact, they seek to drag US into a quagmire on his behalf. @realDonaldTrump should know better than to be conned into another US disaster.”
