The Vice President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Mohsen Mansouri, announced that the funeral for President Ebrahim Raisi, and those who perished with him in the helicopter crash, is scheduled to take place in Tehran on May 22.

Despite Iran's declaration of a five-day mourning period, educational institutions remain open. This decision may stem from concerns that student demonstrations demanding political reforms could reignite in the country.

On the evening of May 20, hundreds of individuals gathered in Tehran Valiasr Square to pay tribute to the late head of state. According to reports from Al-Sharq al-Awsat, many demonstrators were also seen carrying Palestinian flags.
