    ‘These outlaws must be stopped’: Iranian FM tears into US, says Mahan Air jet incident could lead to disaster


    ‘These outlaws must be stopped’: Iranian FM tears into US, says Mahan Air jet incident could lead to disaster


    Iran’s top diplomat pulled no punches while slamming the US for scrambling fighter jets to challenge an Iranian airliner flying over Syria. The audacious move served to “compound lawlessness,” he said.
    Mohammad Javad Zarif had some bold words for Washington, which said earlier in the day that the F-15 jet was sent in to carry out “a visual inspection” of the Mahan Air Airbus A310. It also said the flyby was to ensure the Iranian jet posed no danger to the American military base At Tanf, set up in the southeastern part of Syria without Damascus’ consent.
    There were conflicting reports as to how many US jets took part in the encounter. While the US Central Command says one F-15 had approached the Mahan Air plane, some Iranian media insist that two warplanes were maneuvering in close proximity to the passenger airliner.
    “The US illegally occupies territory of another State and then harasses a scheduled civil airliner – endangering innocent civilian passengers – ostensibly to protect its occupation forces,” Zarif commented on Twitter, before striking a harsher tone.
    Audacity to compound lawlessness upon lawlessness. These outlaws must be stopped before disaster.
    Other Iranian officials have also used similar language when giving their takes on the incident that saw the packed A310 rapidly changing altitude.
    Minister of Roads and Urban Development Mohammad Eslami bluntly accused the US of committing a “terrorist act” by “attacking a passenger plane.” Tehran’s civil aviation authority reached out to the UN-run International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to investigate the aerial encounter.
    Several passengers received minor injuries in the incident, which was filmed from inside the plane. By Thursday evening the aircraft had returned safely to Tehran.

    Tehran vows international probe into US ‘terrorist’ interception of Mahan Air plane over Syria

    Tehran vows international probe into US ‘terrorist’ interception of Mahan Air plane over Syria

    Iran is demanding that the US be held accountable for scrambling a fighter jet to shadow a packed commercial plane in Syrian airspace, calling it an act of terrorism that deserves a probe by the UN-led civil aviation authority.
    Minister of Roads and Urban Development Mohammad Eslami went to great lengths to condemn the mid-air incident that saw an Airbus A310, flown by the private Mahan Air, perform an emergency maneuver after a close encounter with an American F-15 fighter jet.
    “How could a passenger plane flying along a commercial route according to aviation protocols be attacked and threatened by some country's fighter jets?” he asked when talking to state news agency IRNA on Friday.
    Attacking a passenger plane is a terrorist act.
    The minister said five passengers received injuries as the pilot had to perform a sharp nosedive, apparently trying to avoid a collision. The ill-fated A310, which traversed through Syrian airspace when the encounter happened, eventually landed in Beirut airport where the injured received medical care.
    Tehran reserves the right to “pursue legal actions” over the US’ conduct, Eslami pledged, encouraging Syrian and Lebanese authorities to follow suit.
    The US Central Command insisted the F-15 pilot acted safely while conducting “a standard visual inspection” of the Iranian airplane, as Captain Bill Urban, spokesman for CENTCOM, put it in a comment for Reuters.

    “The visual inspection occurred to ensure the safety of coalition personnel at Al Tanf garrison,” Urban said, referring to a US-run military base unlawfully set up on Syrian soil. He didn’t explain what danger could have been posed by a commercial plane passing tens of thousands feet above the ground.

    Notably, whereas the US Central Command said one F-15 had approached the plane, Iranian media reported that two warplanes were maneuvering in close proximity to the passenger airliner.

    Meanwhile, Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization said the harassment of the Mahan Air jet “constitutes clear violation of international law as well as aviation standards and regulations,” as cited by Tasnim. The agency has urged the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to investigate the mid-air encounter.

    Or this one from your archives, Israeli fighter jets bombarding USS Liberty Navy ship for many hours killing 34 US sailors and asking questions later.
    But who's counting... Got to do what you got to do. What's 34 dead US sailors and 171 wounded between friends?




    God bless President Trump!

    Which anthem did you play when you killed 34 US sailors and wounded 171 ?
    I'd like for Trump the patriot tell his Navy sailors the truth instead of firing their Captain for saving their lives.

    Accidents happen.
    We prayed for their loss and grieved with them, and have since moved on and enjoy a great relationship today. Question is, why you mad dawg? Go kiss Bassil's ass some and maybe you'll feel better 😂.

    Sounds like a Nazi prayer and grief for undertaking the holocaust...

    That would be impossible, Nazis are history my friend. Soon, the Khomeinist regime will be too.

    Or even this: Navy Ship fires at another civilian plane and askes questions later...

    " Or even this: Navy Ship fires at another civilian plane and asks questions later... " -yes, that too and this is probably what has made Iranian pilots jittery, this and them worrying that they might have been discovered carrying illegal weapons cargo.

    Bottom line is that there was no imminent danger to either aircraft despite Iranian claims to the contrary.

    I am assuming you are referring to Liberty incident: "Which anthem did you play when you killed 34 US sailors and wounded 171?"
    The answer:
    USA played USA anthem.
    Israel played Israeli anthem.

    Anything else you'd like to learn?

    He is a funny guy. Haven't you noticed.
    Not all the time. It's hard sometime to catch correct written expression. I'd rather ask for clarification then make faulty assumption.

    So what resulted in all of this was a spooked-out pilot, and a couple of light bruises on the passenger side.

    If that’s terrorism, what was it called when Iran shot down that Ukrainian airliner some months ago, killing all passengers on board? Remember, they initially denied responsibility and refused to hand over the black box for weeks....

    I like to learn how did the families of the American sailors you killed and injured felt about the charade you told them while playing their anthem.
    The reason we veered away from the topic is because I wonder about the story we are supposed to believe concerning the latest Iranian airplane incident when its teller is someone who brags about lying cheating and stealing publicly while the audience thinks it's witty and cheering for him. That's the culture that calls its people exceptional.:cool:
