Amid reports that Iran' Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has been hospitalized in critical condition, Tehran has issued what it claims is evidence of his involvement in a public meeting with environmentalists to address Iran's natural resources
On Tuesday, reports emerged claiming that the Islamic Republic's top cleric was taken into intense medical care, allegations which FARS news, an Iranian state news agency, dubbed as "Israeli driven rumors," even suggesting that the Jewish state has embarked on similar misinformation campaigns in the past.
"In numerous occasions, they [Israel, Western Intelligence] have said he is ill and they've taken him to hospital, and it wasn't true. And the only time he went to hospital, they didn't know about it," said Mohammad Marandi, the Ayatollah's chief surgeon. "So it's obvious that they do not have any inside information. Probably a part of the campaign against Iran to create uncertainty," he said.
Khamenei, who suffers from stage four prostate cancer was initially hospitalized and operated upon on September 8, 2014. Western intelligence officials speaking to Le Figaro last week suggested that Khamenei 's cancer had spread to terminal levels, with some medical experts speculating that he has only two years to live.
Iran, however, has been adamant as to the top cleric's health, dispelling any notions that his condition has worsened and denying that a conversation about his successor has ensued.

Israel has used a lot of covert operations against Iran including spreading rumors about its enemy.
This may be more of the same being spread through the usual websites, sources like “Times of Israel” or “DEBKA”.
