Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

The deadly attack at the Shah Cheragh mosque in Shiraz comes on the same day that thousands of protesters marked 40 days since Mahsa Amini's death.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei condemned Iran's biggest protests in years, ignited by a young Kurdish woman who died in police custody after not wearing her hijab "properly."
Iran announced it has begun using advanced centrifuges to enrich uranium.
More than twenty are dead after protesters in Iran took to the streets to demonstrate against the country’s leaders.
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has been ill for quite some time, and over the years there have been speculations on his possible successor. The developments over the past year indicate that a possible successor is emerging.
The man who stepped into Khomeini's shoes almost three decades ago turned 77 on July 16th. Things have changed a lot since that first day when a man from outside the Grand Ayatollahs' club became Iran's leader.
100 years on, it seems naive to continue to believe that the division of the region via the Sykes-Picot agreement is still relevant when the reality on the ground tells an entirely different story. The West must take this into account if it hopes to find a solution to a conflict by which it is now also directly concerned.
