Iran to take legal and political action after plane incident in Syria


Shafaq News/ Iran said, today, that it would take the necessary political and legal measures, after the Mahan air incident in Syria

Spokesman of the Iranian ministry of foreign affairs, Abbas Mousavi, said that the investigation was underway to understand what happened to the Beirut-bound plane that took off from Tehran late Thursday.

Mousavi said Tehran’s Ambassador to the UN Takht Ravanchi spoke to UN chief, António Guterres, and warned that the US will bear responsibility if anything happened to the Iranian plane on its way back to Tehran.

The Iranian civilian jet was "dangerously approached" by two fighter planes, forcing the pilot to descend sharply to avoid a crash, reports said, while a number of passengers were injured.
