Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Sunday that many problems in the Muslim world are caused by the "fake Zionist regime," Iranian news agency IRNA reported.

Addressing a group of officials and ambassadors, Khamenei referred to Israel as a "cancerous tumor of Zionism in the heart of the Muslim world," according to IRNA.

His speech came just days after he expressed confidence that "the fake Zionist (regime) will disappear from the landscape of geography,” according to Iran's Mehr News Agency

"The light of hope will shine on the Palestinian issue, and this Islamic land will certainly be returned to the Palestinian nation," Khamenei was quoted as saying on Wednesday.
