Knotts, the pilot, encountered a severe snowstorm over the Zagros Mountains. The deep snow and gentle slope at 12, feet cushioned two impacts: in the first, the aircraft lost one wing; in the second, the aircraft nose-flipped onto its back with the cockpit breaking away from the fuselage. Amazingly, all five American soldiers aboard pilot, co-pilot, crew chief, and two passengers survived the crash. Johnson, from the plywood cargo and twisted aircraft frame. Carder, climbed into the fuselage through the open cargo doorway. SP5 Porter got the first aid kit from the survival chest and began treating the injured.

Clashes Between Two Cities In Iran With Police Firing Guns
An Iranian labour protest leader has been arrested for the second time, state media reported Monday, after the judiciary denied his claim that he was tortured in custody late last year. Esmail Bakhshi "was arrested last night in cooperation with security and law enforcement forces," Mansour Mohammadi, the prosecutor general of Dezful, in Khuzestan province, told the judiciary's news website Mizan Online. Bakhshi was one of the organisers of weeks of protests at the Haft Tapeh sugar factory in the city of Shush in November and December, over unpaid wages and alleged criminal activity by new private owners. State TV on Saturday broadcast a programme claiming that Bakhshi and Sepideh Gholian, another activist who supported the Haft Tapeh strikers, had connections with Europe-based activists who "aim to topple the state". The programme featured footage of Bakhshi and Gholian sitting behind desks in front of red and blue curtains, detailing their connections and activities with the activists, allegedly based in several European countries. The semi-official Fars news agency, close to conservatives, said Bakshi had attempted to flee the country to continue the "torture allegation project" abroad. After his release from his first detention, Bakhshi claimed on his Instagram account, that he had been tortured during his day detention by agents of the intelligence ministry.

Iran is capable of producing a nuclear weapon within two years, if it steps up work on its nuclear program and violates the deal with the West, according to a recent Israeli intelligence assessment. The assessment was released as the controversial US-led summit against Iran opened in Warsaw, where Israel is expected to pressure the European Union against trying to prop up the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action following the American withdrawal last May. In the Polish capital, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke openly about the possibility of war with Iran, and the possibility of a new alliance of Arab states with Israel, in the event of such hostilities. Prior to heading to the ministerial meeting, he said Israel is working to oust Iran from Syria. According to the assessment, Iran is contemplating how to deal with American sanctions in the hope that President Donald Trump will not be reelected in and a new and more pragmatic president would be elected, or to signal to the West that if the current status quo remains, it, too, will leave the agreement and return to enriching uranium.
