‘Expect A  Big War’ If Iran Traces President’s Helicopter Crash To Enemies- Expert

LAGOS MAY 21ST (NEWSRANGERS)-Iran could launch an all-out war on the world if it turns out an “enemy state” had a hand in the fatal helicopter crash that saw the country’s president killed overnight.

The wreckage of the ill-fated US-made Bell 212 helicopter was discovered by rescue teams today, with initial reports suggesting that the dreadful weather in the country’s mountainous northwest could be the cause as the duo were en route to Tehran.

Mehr news agency reported that Raisi, aged 63, “accepted martyrdom” while “fulfilling his duty to the people of Iran.” In an emergency government meeting held in Tehran, the president’s chair remained vacant.

And speaking to Kremlin-backed Russian news outlet Moskovskij Komsomolets, Iranian journalist Khayal Muazzin claimed that results of an investigation into it could have more on the line for the world than most realise.

He said: “If it is proven that hostile countries were involved in the disaster, someone collaborated with the enemies, there will be a tough response from Iran. If they prove that a terrorist attack occurred, then we can expect a big war.

“The Iranian people do not believe that this was an ordinary plane crash. The helicopter itself was maintained at a high level. I communicate with people, most believe that this is not an accidental tragedy.”

It has been claimed that “the West” – specifically either the United States or Israel – had a hand in the crash, but this has not been officially confirmed by Iran or either of those countries.

It has also been announced that Iran will hold five official days of mourning, despite the constant unrest from certain sections of the country’s society. Muazzin, however, added that the death and mourning period will stop the unrest and rallies “for now”.

He explained: ”People are not in the mood for rallies now; at the moment people are grieving. And it won’t be possible to organize protests. Law enforcement agencies suppress any attempts.”

The investigation into the crash is still ongoing.
