Search Continues for Missing Iranian President After Helicopter Disappearance

Panic fluttered through Tehran like a sandstorm. News reports, usually tightly controlled, were in disarray. A helicopter carrying President Raisi, along with other officials, had vanished in the mountainous border region of East Azerbaijan. Initial reports spoke of a “hard landing,” but Iranian state media offered no further details.

Unconfirmed rumors swirled on social media. Some speculated of a technical malfunction, others, more sinister, whispered of foul play. The world watched with bated breath. Was this a carefully orchestrated attack, or a cruel twist of fate?

Authorities in Iran still have not locate the helicopter carrying the president and the defense minister that disappeared on route from the Azerbaijani border. The statement notes, however, that at least one individual on board had contacted them indicating a hard landing, says BashKarma.

Iranian TV: Bad weather conditions in the west of the country hinder relief teams from reaching the Iranian president’s helicopter. In addition to President Raisi, Iranian Foreign Minister Amir Abdollahian was also on board the helicopter. IRNA reports that Dizmar forest is the exact location of the accident of the helicopter carrying President Raisi. Iranian News Agency IRNA: The Foreign Minister and a number of officials were on board the helicopter with the Iranian President.

Iranian official to Reuters: ‘We are still hopeful but information coming from the crash site is very concerning’ — Reuters. It seems like the situation is not good.
