Khamenei, who has been in office since 1989, is said to have had “extreme abdominal pain and high fever” before the operation, reports the New York Times.

A makeshift clinic has been set up at his home for the operation, a source close to the outlet’s leader said.

They claimed he canceled all meetings as he remains on bed rest and under 24-hour medical supervision

Khamenei’s condition was considered critical last week but has since improved, according to insiders.

It is claimed that Khamenei – who is Iran’s supreme authority and has the last word on all state affairs – is too weak to sit up in bed amid ongoing concerns from his medics.

In late August, he visited the religious city of Mashhad to perform a “dust-cleansing ritual” at Imam Reza’s shrine.

Images of him shared by Iranian media show him wearing a face mask as he went to a secluded area of ​​the shrine to clean it and lay his head on a tombstone.

An insider claims he has told people who have taken the 560-mile journey with him that given his age, it could be his last visit, NYT reported.

It is reported that he fell ill after returning to Tehran.

Sources close to the chairman told the newspaper his condition had deteriorated over the past week, forcing him to cancel all meetings.

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi visited Uzbekistan for a regional security meeting on Friday – analysts told the newspaper he likely would have canceled had Khamenei’s life been in danger.

For several years, question marks have hung over the supreme leader’s health.

In 2020, it was claimed he would hand power over to his son if his health deteriorated.

His right hand is partially paralyzed after an assassination attempt in 1981 when a bomb exploded in front of him.

Rumors have long been circulating that Khamenei suffered from prostate cancer.

It was reported that the supreme leader had undergone successful prostate surgery in 2014.

Since then, his health issues have remained a mystery.

If Khamenei dies, a new supreme leader will be chosen by the Assembly of Experts, which is composed of 88 clerics according to the Islamic Republic’s constitution.

Once elected and with at least two-thirds of the votes in the assembly, his successor could retain the position for life.

The constitution states that after the death or removal of a supreme leader, a new one must be appointed as soon as possible.
