The Boeing 737 plane carrying 180 passenger was said to have experienced technical difficulties, as reported by CNN.
Pirhossein Koulivard, the head of Iran’s Emergency Medical Services said that most of the passengers lost their lives and unfortunately, emergency crews that have been dispatched could not assist much as the crash site is completely ablaze.
