Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accuses the United States of “directing” strikes Israel has been carrying out on Hamas in Gaza in response to the October 7 assault.

“America is a definite accomplice of criminals,” says Khamenei during a speech in Tehran.

“The United States is in some way directing the crime that is being committed in Gaza.”

Khamenei says the hands of Americans “were tainted with the blood of the oppressed, children, patients, women and others.”

“Let everyone know that in this matter and future matters, the Palestinian nation is victorious and the future world is the world of Palestine, not the world of the Zionist regime,” Khamenei says, referring to Israel.

The United States has moved two aircraft carriers into the eastern Mediterranean in a move it says is to deter Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah, both allies of Hamas, from getting involved in the Israel-Hamas war.
