Iran’s Khamenei leads Friday prayers in Tehran for the first time in eight years

Iranian Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, today led the Friday prayers in Tehran for the first time in eight years. During an address at the Tehran mosque, Khamenei defended the country’s military for maintaining security in Iran and criticised U.S. President Trump’s administration.

His mosque address occurred in the wake of protests in various Iranian towns following the shooting down of an Ukrainian passenger plane by the Iranian military last week.

The Iranian leadership is facing pressure due to the negative effects on the Iranian economy as a result of United States sanctions. President Hassan Rouhani while appealing for national unity, he called on the Iranian military to give an account on the passenger plane shooting.
