Saudi Arabia has blocked the website of Iran’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei for security reasons, a newspaper in the Gulf kingdom said on Monday.

The Telecommunications and Information Technology Authority (TITA), the country’s telecom regulatory body, blocked access to the website, which is titled “The office of the supreme leader.”

“TITA moved to block access to this website as part of its ongoing efforts to protect internet users against sites that promote vice or seek to destabilize national security,” the Arabic language daily Sabq said.

Saudi Arabia and Iran have been at political and ideological loggerheads for several years.
