Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei stated on Monday that “our region was very much in need of October 7,” praising Hamas’ operation as a “huge blow to Israel.”

He emphasized the operation’s timing, saying that it occurred precisely when there were “schemes” to alter the geopolitical dynamics of the region orchestrated by the United States and “Israel” to push for normalization with the Israeli Occupation.

"Given the situation over the past eight months, there is no hope for reviving such a plan,” Khamenei said.

Khamenei, who was speaking in a televised address at a ceremony marking the 35th anniversary of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s death, said that the Israeli Occupation “has completely misjudged the capabilities of the resistance front.”

"The Zionist regime is melting before the eyes of the world... They have, by their own actions, entered a dead-end corridor from which failures continue to follow one after the other, and from which they will not be able to escape."
