January 30th – An air raid alarm suddenly sounded late at night on the 29th in Tehran, the capital of Iran.
At the same time, a passenger plane scheduled to fly to Tehran suddenly changed its route, which attracted the attention of foreign media.
On the 30th, Iranian officials responded.
According to Iran’s Tasnim News Agency, when the air raid alarm sounded in Tehran, a passenger plane from Istanbul happened to circle over Tehran and then changed its route to Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan.
This coincidence has triggered speculation on social platforms, and there is speculation that it is related to the “invasion” of Israeli warplanes.
In response, officials familiar with the Iranian armed forces clarified that the alarm was not related to any air strike threat.
Tehran officials in charge of security revealed that the alarm sounded because of a technical failure of the alarm.
Meanwhile, the public relations department of Imam Khomeini International Airport in Tehran also pointed out in a statement that the passenger plane’s change of route was related to bad weather.
