The Fokker 100 plane was carrying 135 passengers at the time of incident, nine of whom suffered minor injuries.

Reza Arbabi, a spokesperson of the governor-general office of Sistan and Baluchestan province, said that one of the landing gears of the plane failed to deploy when it was about to land on the runway in Zahedan.
