Turkish plane crashes in Iran

Tehran: A Turkish jet with 11 people on board crashed in the suburban area of Iran’s western city of Shehr-e Kord on Sunday, the media reported.

The plane was seen catching fire in the air, before it crashed into the heights of Helen Mountain near Dorak Anari village, Xinhua reported.

The plane was flying from Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates to Istanbul, the report said.

This is not the only plane crash in Iran in recent times. In February, an Iranian Aseman Airlines plane crashed in the country’s central Isfahan province, killing 60 passengers and six crew members on board.
