State TV in Iran reports that the plane suffered “technical problems” shortly after takeoff, resulting in the crash only minutes into its flight. Casualties are expected.

Shortly before the crash happened, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was accused of making threats towards the United States of America regarding passenger planes being shot down. Similar to when the US Navy “accidentally” shot down an Iranian passenger jet in the Persian Gulf in July 1998 which killed 290 people.

President Donald J. Trump is expected to make a statement to the world in the morning hours of Wednesday January 8th, 2020.

  1. Wondering if someone/something assisted this plane into crashing. What commercial pilot will take off in basically a country in a war zone when missiles are getting let off? Something very wrong with that picture. And of course the investigation will be handled internally . Everyone can expect more accidents/ incidents thanks to the jackass who just pissed off a bunch of lunatics.
