DUBAI (Reuters) – A top adviser to Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Tuesday praised Iran’s recent downing of a U.S. drone and the seizing of a British-flagged tanker as turning points in “Muslims’ struggle”, the semi-official news agency Fars said.

“Islamic countries… are today stronger than before as shown by the seizure of the British oil tanker or the downing of the U.S. drone which violated Iran’s territory — which are milestones in the history of Muslims’ struggle,” said Ali Akbar Velayati, Khamenei’s foreign policy adviser, according to Fars.
