The shocking incident took place in Dizmar forest between the cities of Varzaqan and Jolfa in East Azarbaijan province as president Raisi was returning from an inaugurating event of a dam with Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev on Sunday (May 19).

The local residents heard "sounds" in that region, IRNA says.

About twenty fully-equipped of search and rescue teams,with drones and sniffer dogs, have been dispatched to the area.

However, commando units and Special Forces of Iranian Armed Forces have also deployed to assist in that search operation.

According to the IRNA's reporter, the search and rescue operation could take some time, due to difficult weather conditions and particularly thick fog in that area.

Iran's Emergency Services spokesperson told the news agency that eight ambulances have been dispatched to the region, adding that heavy fog has made air rescue efforts very difficult.
