Hamas, Houthis and Hezbollah mourn the death of Iran's president

Iran-backed militant groups Hamas, the Houthis, and Hezbollah have sent condolences to Tehran over the death of the country's President, Ebrahim Raisi.

Hours after their deaths were confirmed, Houthi senior official Mohamed Ali Al-Houthi sent condolences.

"Our deepest condolences to the Iranian people and the Iranian leadership," he said. “The Iranian people will continue to have leaders loyal to their people.
Hamas said it is extending “its sincere condolences, deep sympathy, and solidarity" to the supreme leader, "to the Iranian government, and to the brotherly Iranian people.”

“We are confident that the Islamic Republic of Iran will be able — with the help of Allah — to overcome the consequences of this great loss, as the dear Iranian people have strong institutions capable of dealing with this severe ordeal,” Hamas said.

Lebanon-based Hezbollah likened Raisi to a "big brother."

“Hezbollah in Lebanon extends its deepest condolences and feelings of sympathy for (Iran’s Supreme leader, Iranian officials and the Iranian people’s) loss,” a statement by the group said.

Hezbollah, one of the most powerful paramilitary forces in the Middle East, has clashed with Israel in near-daily cross-border skirmishes since the war in Gaza began.

Iran has provided military and economic backing to Hamas, the Houthis, and Hezbollah.
