While condolence messages have been pouring in for Raisi from across the world, including from Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as of 13:00 IST, Israel hadn’t issued a formal statement acknowledging the incident.

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, a staunch supporter of the country’s supreme leader, who played a key role in the mass executions of thousands in 1988 and later led Iran during its uranium enrichment efforts to near weapons-grade levels and a significant drone-and-missile attack on Israel, has passed away at the age of 63.

Raisi’s unexpected demise, alongside Iran’s foreign minister and other officials, occurred in a helicopter crash in northwestern Iran on Sunday.

This event comes at a time when Iran is grappling with internal dissent and its global relations.
