Foreign dignitaries, including leaders of terrorist groups, attended Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi’s funeral Wednesday.

Crowds of mourners chanted “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” at the procession. Meanwhile, trucks delivering humanitarian aid to Gaza are being hijacked and their supplies seized, the Pentagon confirmed. Authorities say this highlights the desperation in Gaza and the need for more aid delivery routes, but emphasizes the importance of keeping aid workers safe.
