Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says his country has offered the International Committee of the Red Cross "medical assistance for the Iraqi and Iranian victims" of this week's earthquake.

Neither Iran nor Iraq has diplomatic relations with Israel. It wasn't immediately known whether the offer was accepted.

Netanyahu made the comment during an interview broadcast to leaders of Jewish communities in North America.

The Israeli leader says his country has "no quarrel with the people of Iran."

He adds: "Our quarrel is only with the tyrannical regime that holds them hostage and threatens our destruction."
