“The information from the crash site is very disturbing.” The fate of Iran’s president is still unknown

The fate of Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi is still unknown after the incident that occurred during a helicopter flight on Sunday.

Today, Iranian state television reported that the helicopter carrying Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi had had a “hard landing”. Twenty rescue teams are currently searching for the Iranian leader. However, activities are difficult due to heavy rain and very dense fog in the area.

“State television reported that rescuers tried to reach the crash site, but bad weather conditions prevented them from doing so. Heavy rain and fog, accompanied by strong winds, were reported,” state media reported.

There is no information about Raisi’s fate

According to the Associated Press, neither IRNA nor state television have provided any information on Raisi’s condition. At the same time, his supporters called on the public to pray for the leader. State television then showed photos of worshipers praying at the Imam Reza shrine in the city of Mashhad, one of the holiest sites in Shi’ite Islam.

An Iranian official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters that the lives of Iran’s president and foreign minister were “in danger” after the “disaster”.

– We still have hope, but the information coming from the crash site is very disturbing, he said.

Iranian Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi said President Raisi and his companions were on board several helicopters on their way back from Azerbaijan, one of which had to make a hard landing due to adverse weather conditions in the region.

“Today in the presence of the President of Azerbaijan the inauguration (ceremony) of the opening of the Kis-Kalasi Dam took place. The President and his entourage then departed for a return trip in several helicopters, one of which was forced to make a hard landing due to adverse weather conditions in the area,” Vahidi pointed out.
