Iran’s President Raisi killed in a helicopter crash



Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, a hardliner seen as a potential successor to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, tragically lost his life in a helicopter crash.. The crash occurred in the mountainous terrain near the Azerbaijan border, amidst poor weather conditions, according to officials and state media reports.

The helicopter was carrying President Raisi, Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian, and six other passengers and crew, crashed on Sunday. Despite challenging blizzard conditions, search efforts continued overnight, and the charred wreckage of the helicopter was discovered early on Monday.

The bodies of President Ebrahim Raisi, his foreign minister, and other senior officials were recovered on Monday morning, confirming their tragic deaths in the crash. President Raisi, aged 63, was widely considered as a potential successor to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, holding significant influence within Iran’s religious and judicial circles.

As a staunch religious conservative with deep connections to Iran’s judiciary and religious elite, Raisi’s political career began in his early 20s when he served as a prosecutor in various cities before assuming a prominent role in Tehran in 1989. Although his initial bid for the presidency in 2017 was unsuccessful, Raisi ultimately ascended to the presidency in 2021.


    • These UKA ati “utunensu ku Iran.. will have elections in few months”.

    • But you Zambians are idyots, you think there is any Iranian on this earth reading your comments??
      I hear there was a PF group which slept at a graveyard wishing same thing to happen in Zambia.
      Why did God waste material on PFs??

  1. Deuteronomy 20:1-4 And He shall say to them, ‘Hear, O Israel: Today you are on the verge of battle with your enemies. Do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid, and do not tremble or be terrified because of them; for the LORD your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you. ‘

  2. @Katana
    You’r delusional…..” if you’re not careful the newspapers will make you hate the oppressed and love the oppressor”..MalcolmX…..
    “Hitler didn’t kill enough Jews”….Idi Amin

  3. @Anonymous, there is no oppressor. That land belongs to the Jews. Israel is the only nation which is mentioned in the Bible how it was established. There is been no nation or people known as Palestinians. These were workers who were brought from Syria and other Arab nations by the British colonisers when they occupied Israel.

  4. Do you know why Zambia is cursed? KK chased away the Israelites in Zambia and broke Diplomatic relationships. Do you know what Chuliba did when he became president? He restored the diplomatic relationship with Israel. Be careful,you will find yourself fighting God.
    Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse, and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”

    If am delusional, I want you all tonight before you sleep, I want you to point to the sky and say loud you curse the Jews 3 times.
    Then ask later and tell me how blessed you have been.

  5. ” i chased the Israelis from Uganda because Israelis are Criminals…the don’t tell the world the truth….” …..Idi Amin
