Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps ( IRGC) reportedly stopped the attempted hijacking of a passenger plane in the Islamic Republic. The perpetrator, who was arrested, allegedly wanted to take a Fokker 100 aircraft south across the Persian Gulf.
The incident happened on Thursday evening and involved Iran Air flight 334 from Ahvaz in southwestern Iran to Mashhad in the northeast, citing a statement by the IRGC. The plane made an emergency landing at Isfahan Airport in the central part of the country.
An IRGC flight security unit was credited with neutralizing the would-be hijacker, who was reportedly arrested. No injuries were reported in the incident. The identity of the alleged perpetrator was not yet released.
The suspect reportedly wanted to force the plane to fly south across the Persian Gulf and land in one of the countries on the shore. Iranian sources would not clarify the destination, which could be Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Oman, Kuwait, or Bahrain.
Seize the plane, load it with explosives, fly it into a major UAE building, drop some Iranian passports, blame Iran, create an international coalition mainly USA and Israel and attack Iran. The usual script. And most of the world knows who does it but afraid to say so openly.
