The Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei prayed over the body of the martyred Iranian president, foreign minister, and their other companions who lost their lives in a helicopter crash on Sunday.

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein AmirAbdollahian have martyred in a helicopter crash in the northwestern province of East Azarbaijan.

The helicopter carrying Sayyed Raisi and his accompanying delegation crashed on Sunday in the Dizmar forest, nestled between the cities of Varzaqan and Jolfa in East Azarbaijan Province.

It was transporting Raisi, Amir-Abdollahian, East Azarbaijan Governor Malek Rahmati, Friday Prayers leader of the city of Tabriz Sayyed Mohammad Ali Al-e Hashem, and a member of the president’s bodyguard team Mahdi Mousavi. The helicopter’s pilot, co-pilot, and crew were also among others on board the chopper.

Raisi and his accompanying delegation were returning from a ceremony to inaugurate a dam on the Aras River with Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev.

Following the tragic martyrdom of Iranian President, Imam Khamenei declared a 5-day mourning in Iran.
