Iran has suspended all air traffic over the capital Tehran from midnight local time due to “military drills,” the semi-official Mehr news agency quotes the defense minister as saying.

Iran’s Mehr news agency removed a report on Wednesday from its official channel on X that had said Iran was closing its airspace over the capital, Tehran, and denied in a new post that it had published any such news.

In the original report posted on X, the semi-official news agency cited the Iranian defense minister as saying that all air traffic had been suspended over Tehran from 8:30 p.m. GMT on Wednesday “due to military drills.”
