Helicopter carrying Iranian President crashes



A helicopter carrying Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi crashed on Sunday in the country’s northwestern region, according to official reports.

The incident occurred while President Raisi was visiting the neighboring country of Azerbaijan.

The helicopter was part of a convoy of three, with the other two successfully reaching their destination.

Reports indicate that some of the president’s companions on board the helicopter managed to communicate with authorities, suggesting that there may not have been any casualties.

However, the exact status of President Raisi and the helicopter remains unclear.

Among those reportedly on board the helicopter with President Raisi were Seyyed Mohammad-Ali Al-Hashem, Tabriz’s Friday Prayer Imam, and Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian.

Rescue teams, including drones, are working to reach the site, which is located in a forest area with heavy rain and fog, making access challenging.

The head of Iran’s Red Crescent Society’s Relief and Rescue Department is overseeing the search operation.

Further details are awaited to confirm the safety and condition of President Raisi and his companions.

This is a developing story, and we will provide updates as more information becomes available.
