Helicopter carrying pres. Raisi involved in accident

A helicopter transporting President Ebrahim Raisi encountered an accident earlier on Sunday in the East Azerbaijan province.

According to initial reports, some of the President’s companions aboard the helicopter have managed to make contact with central authorities, raising hopes that the incident may end without any fatalities.

The President’s convoy consisted of three helicopters. While two of these, carrying various ministers and officials, successfully reached their destination, the helicopter carrying President Raisi faced difficulties.

Among those reported to be with President Raisi was Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian. Rescue operations are currently underway, and further details on the condition of the passengers are awaited.

Meanwhile, Ahmad Alireza Beigi, representative of Tabriz, said: “I do not know the details of the incident. The Red Crescent, who were going to the area, informed me that this had happened and that we were looking for the downed helicopter.”

He went on to say: “I cannot say exactly that an accident happened to the helicopter carrying the head of the 13th Administration.”

Additionally, another representative of East Azerbaijan province, speaking on condition of anonymity, said: “It seems that an accident happened to President Raisi’s helicopter, but I don’t have accurate information.”
