Rumors about Khamenei’s deteriorated health are not unprecedented. However, local rumors combined with Khamenei’s prolonged absence from the eyes of the public deserve greater attention. Iran’s Supreme Leader might make a public appearance and reject all allegations concerning his health, something he has done many times so far.
Iran’s most powerful position is occupied by the 74-year-old Ayatollah Khamenei with allegedly ill health. As his eventual death at the moment is seen as the only option for a change at the top in Iran, it is no surprise that the world is watching his medical condition closely.Dr. Theodore Karasik
