We cannot help but think there is 5D chess going on here, similar to the alleged death of Soleimani. Claims of deaths, claims of responsibility — all may be a manipulation somewhere.


Iran: Raisi, Amir-Abdollahian, officials pronounced dead

Iranian state media officially announces the death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, and all accompanying officials who were on the helicopter.


Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi alongside Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and accompanying officials have passed away in the tragic helicopter crash in Iran’s East Azerbaijan Province, according to an official statement by Iranian state media.

After locating the helicopter carrying the Iranian President and accompanying officials on Monday morning, Iran’s Red Crescent Society (IRCS) issued a preliminary statement noting that there was “no sign of life” found near the wreckage locations.

This announcement comes over 16 hours after the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps reported they had lost contact with the helicopter carrying the officials. Since then, at least 73 rapid response and rescue teams from the provinces of East Azarbaijan, Tehran, Alborz, Ardabil, Zanjan, and West Azarbaijan were involved in the search and rescue operations led by the Iranian RCS.

Additionally, countries such as Azerbaijan, Turkey, and Russia participated in the search and rescue efforts in the province.

Returning from a ceremony

According to Iranian state media, the President’s helicopter crashed against a mountaintop in the Varzaqan region on Sunday while returning from a ceremony to inaugurate a dam on Iran’s border with the Azerbaijan Republic. Iranian state TV mentioned that the helicopter was one of three carrying Raisi and his accompanying delegation of senior officials, which also included Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and the Friday Prayer Imam of Tabriz, among other officials.

In response to the incident, Iran’s leader Sayyed Ali Khamenei called on the Iranian nation on Sunday to pray for the safe return of President Raisi and his companions.
