Iran’s NAJA Aircraft Crashes in Baluchistan

An Iranian Law Enforcement Forces (NAJA) airplane flying to the country’s restive Baluchistan province crashed in the mountainous area outside Zahedan on Saturday night, killing all seven aboard, including three NAJA commanders.

The propeller Turbo Commander airplane took off from Tehran to investigate multiple raids on border guard posts that have killed five guards since Wednesday, Fars News Agency reported. 

A border guard commander told Fars News that the plane was not downed by a missile or other weaponry.
