Leaders from Iran’s proxy groups joined Iran’s allies in Tehran on Wednesday to attend the memorial services for the late Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, who was killed in a helicopter crash.

The Wednesday morning funeral ceremony, held at Tehran University, was attended by Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas, Naim Qassem of Hezbollah, and representatives from other groups backed by Iran, while western leaders were notably absent.

Ahmed Hachani, Tunisia’s Prime Minister, along with the Prime Ministers of Iraq and Armenia, and Russian State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, were also among the figures who arrived to attend the ceremony.

Zhang Guoqing, China’s Vice Prime Minister, and Shehbaz Sharif, Pakistan’s Prime Minister, are also expected to arrive, signaling regional support for Tehran amidst its international isolation. Moreover, Egypt’s Foreign Minister, Sameh Shoukry, has traveled to Tehran, marking a rare high-level visit historically strained over ideological differences.
