In response to harassment of an Iranian passenger plane by American fighter jets, Parliament Speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf said that any crime by the US will undoubtedly accelerate the humiliating destruction of the Zionist regime.

Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf stated in a Twitter message that in a telephone conversation with the person in charge of investigating Mahan Air incident, he followed the details of last night's adventure of American terrorists.

Ghalibaf added: "The Americans lie that they have flown in a standard, routine maneuver, while the pilot has received two TCAS warnings due to the excessive proximity of two fighter jets at the top and bottom of the aircraft."

"Terrorist Americans tried to achieve sinister goals by providing prerequisites for a possible mistake. Any crime committed by the Americans will undoubtedly accelerate the humiliating destruction of the arrogant powers in the region, especially the evil Zionist regime," reiterated Parliament Speaker.

Mahan Air passenger plane was en route to Beirut, Lebanon when it was threatened by two military jets.

The pilot of the Iranian plane said when he was talking to the pilots of the fighter jets to ask them to keep distance they had said that they were American.

Although the Iranian plane finally landed in Beirut Airport, some of its passengers were immediately taken to hospital.
