Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Saudi Arabia has not made good on its obligations regarding the recent deadly Hajj incident, saying Iran's possible response will be"tough and harsh."

"Should we decide to show any reaction, our reaction will be tough and harsh," said the Leader at a joint commencement ceremony for the graduates of the Iranian Army’s military academies in the city of Noshahr in northern Mazandaran Province on Wednesday.

Ayatollah Khamenei blasted Saudi officials for failing to live up to their commitments regarding the crush in Mina, near the Saudi city of Mecca, on September 24.

“Saudi Arabia failed to fulfill its duties concerning the desperate wounded [pilgrims],” said the Leader.

Ayatollah Khamenei noted, “Saudi authorities do not discharge their responsibilities and in some cases act contrarily (contrary to their duties) and slyly.”

Ayatollah Khamenei also lashed out at Riyadh for failing to ensure the safety of Hajj pilgrims.

“Our nation is grief-stricken; the Hajj should be a place of security; is it [called] security when the lives of people are jeopardized during the [Hajj] rituals?”the Leader asked rhetorically.

Ayatollah Khamenei further said representatives from Iran and other Muslim nations should probe the Mina tradedy.

Head of Iran's Hajj and Pilgrimage Organization Saeed Ohadi has announced that 239 Iranian pilgrims have so far been confirmed dead. Twenty-seven Iranian pilgrims have been wounded and 241 others remain unaccounted for.
