OK, who brought the Israeli oranges into Iran?

Iran’s semi-official Mehr and Ilna news agencies are reporting that oranges imported from – heaven forbid – Israel have been distributed and sold in several Iranian cities in recent days.
Mehr notes in an article (and in the Mehr photo above) that the “Zionist” oranges have stickers with the sign “Jaffa, Israel” on them. They apparently were sent from China.
The Iranian regime, which has threatened to wipe Israel off the map, is expected to wipe the oranges off the map.
In an interview with Mehr, the head of the government fruit and vegetable distribution agency said the “violators” would be dealt with.
