"We share the grief of the martyrdom of the President of Iran, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and their comrades," Houthi said in a televised address on Thursday.
President Raeisi lost his life in a helicopter crash in northwest Iran on Sunday along with seven other passengers and crew including Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.

"Martyr Raeisi was the conveyor of Iran's position towards the issues of the Islamic Ummah and he expressed it firmly and boldly," Houthi said.

"Many leaders speak in a tone that always takes into account what might anger the Americans, but Ayatollah Raeisi was different from the rest of the leaders and spoke with a clear and bold voice regardless of American pressure and stood out from the others," he added.

The Ansarullah leader touched on the participation of millions at President Raeisi's funeral, saying it showed his good relations with the nation and how he was different from many leaders around the world.

"Martyr Raeisi was an Islamic leader whom the Islamic Ummah can be proud of on a moral and scientific level. Mr. Raeisi is a role model in his position of responsibility and in relation to his people, and this is an important lesson for other leaders," Houthi said.

"Ayatollah Raeisi considered himself a servant of his people and demonstrated this in practice until the last moment of his life, and this is an important lesson," he added.

Houthi also paid tribute to the Islamic Republic of Iran, saying it has stood by the people of Palestine in a unique and distinguished way.

"Iran has put the issues of the Islamic Ummah and the oppressed, including the oppressed people of Yemen, in the forefront of its attention."
