Ukraine plane crashes near Tehran, all 170 on board killed


TEHRAN: A Ukrainian airplane carrying at least 170 people crashed on Wednesday shortly after takeoff from Tehran's main airport, killing all onboard, state TV reported.


The plane had taken off from Imam Khomeini International Airport in the Iranian capital. The crash is suspected to have been caused by mechanical issues, the TV reported, without elaborating.


An investigation team was at the site of the crash in southwestern outskirts of Tehran, civil aviation spokesman Reza Jafarzadeh said.



"After taking off from Imam Khomeini International Airport, it crashed between Parand and Shahriar," Jafarzadeh said. "An investigation team from the national aviation department was dispatched to the location after the news was announced."


Pir Hossein Kulivand, an Iranian emergency official, later told state TV all those on board were killed in the crash. He said rescuers were trying to collect the dead.

伊朗紧急情况官员Pir Hossein Kulivand后来告诉国家电视台,机上所有人员全部丧生。救援人员正在收集死者遗体。

State TV earlier said there were 180 passengers and crew aboard. The discrepancy could not be immediately reconciled.


Flight data from the airport showed a Ukrainian 737-800 flown by Ukraine International Airlines took off Wednesday morning, then stopped sending data almost immediately afterward, according to website FlightRadar24. The airline did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trump to address Americans - America needs war to cover up our looming debt default and economic collapse. We also need an excuse to usher in the New World Order.

American vassals Qatar and Saudi Arabia will now have to think again about their protector that could not protect them even from them primitive Houthis.

In present situation it looks fishy. I pray that passengers of the plane are safe. All international airline should refrain from flying to or over the Iran for few days as precaution.

Yes, commercial airlines take all precautions and avoid air space over Iran till situation normalize.

What will happen next? Trump's NATO allies will be moving out of the region one by two in order not to escalate. And if they go out Iran will make sure they'd think 3 times before returning to the region in future.

Trump is very clear his troops wont move out of Iraq as they have done huge investment on military infrastructure and spent billions of dollar on Air base in Iraq, Iraq is key for the American influence in middle east, USA is only super power and for USA it does not take much time to annihilate Iran in case of real war.

Or was it shot down



Bhupinder Pal• 1 hour ago

US would have shot it to make it appear as handywork of Iran.

If successful then Iran would be further alineated.


Ashwani Kumar• 1 hour ago

It is quite possible and USA would put the blame on Iran.



Mudi Ji • 56 mins ago

It seems very suspicious, looks like the plane might have been accidentally targeted. I find it highly unlikely that crash was due to mechanical failure right when a war is going on.



vithal• 1 hour ago

when Iran can fire missile at USA so as India can do to Pakistan.



ayush kumar • 1 hour ago

usa must have shot it



Dr Anil Sabaji• 53 mins ago

Plane took off from Iranian Airport and therefore Chances of Iran shooting it down is remote. It could be the handy work of America with poor intelligence. If found that it is an American Missile which brought down this plane, Trump will tweet "180 Terrorists gunned down".
