President Raisi’s helicopter crashes in Iran: What we know so far
A helicopter carrying Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi and the foreign minister crashed while travelling back from East Azerbaijan.

The world is watching as Iran mobilises emergency crews to search for President Ebrahim Raisi, whose helicopter – which was travelling in a convoy – went down in a remote area near Jolfa in Iran’s East Azerbaijan province.

He was returning from Iran’s border with Azerbaijan, where he and the Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev had inaugurated a cooperative dam project, the latest sign of warming relations between the two countries. Twenty rescue teams and drones have been sent to the area where the helicopter came down.

Information is slowly emerging on this incident, but here is what we know so far.

Travelling with Ebrahim Raisi were Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, Iran’s East Azerbaijan Province Governor Malek Rahmati, and Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Ale-Hashem, the representative of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei to East Azerbaijan, according to state media.

Did all three helicopters disappear?
No, two of the three helicopters in the president’s convoy made it back safely to the city of Tabriz.

Energy Minister Ali Akbar Mehrabian and Housing and Transportation Minister Mehrdad Bazrpash were in the helicopters that made it back safely.

Who’s in charge in Iran while the president is missing?
Vice President Mohammad Mokhber, 69, will assume power in Raisi’s absence or while he recovers, should that be needed.

The head of the trustees charged with overseeing the execution of Ayatollah Khamenei’s orders since 2007, Mokhber holds a PhD in international law.



Is this the result of Iran having ancient helis from the 1970s , or something nefarious ?

You'd think the 2 other helis would at least have circled back, if only to locate the crash site.


How the fuck do you lose your president?!


smart of mossad Iran will probably cuck since they probably can't verify for the international community

Were these guys involved?


Iran is a large country, and the heli went down in a mountainous region, so that is not particularly surprising. What is surprising however is that they apparently didn't pack a satellite phone. Or at least a beacon.

Nah the Israeli likely don't have that capability.
The last time one of their Generals was assassinated, it was the US, and the Iranians retaliated by wrecking a few US military bases. They certainly aren't shy. In the extremely unlikely event that Israel tried to take out political leaders in Iran, it would be open hunting season on Iran-unfriendly Israeli political leadership. Unless we see Israeli figureheads dropping like flies, we can assume they weren't involved in this. Atm. it looks like malfunctioning equipment.

Politics would be a lot more fun if they were.


Minor correction, East Azerbaijan is part of Iran. It's near Azerbaijan, but it's not actually Azerbaijanian territory.


I think it looks very suspicious myself. You know, 2-out-of-3 of the helicopters seem to have done fine, it's just the one with the president and foreign minister which went down.

Azerbaijan has also had close relations with Israel from what I understand, and this trip was supposed to be a sign of warming relations between Azerbaijan and Iran. It's not impossible that there was an act of sabotage performed by someone within the Azerbaijanian government.


Confirmed dead.


>It's not impossible that there was an act of sabotage performed by someone within the Azerbaijanian government.
What you are saying makes sense but, lets hope it's not true, because the guy is dead, and we want countries to have warming relations.
