Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Monday said Israel is melting down due to its war against Hamas in Gaza.

Speaking in a ceremony marking the 35th anniversary of the death of previous supreme leader ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Khamenei said, “Today, the Zionist regime gradually melts down before eyes of the world’s people.” State television broadcast his speech live.

In a nearly 55-minute speech, the leader said that Israel’s response to the October 7 assault by Hamas that began the war placed it in a “dead-end corridor.”

Khamenei also said that the war had derailed Israel’s US-backed efforts to reach accommodations with regional neighbors, which he characterized as part of an Israeli plot to dominate the region.
