Between 11 to 20 people were onboard the aircraft, the ISNA News agency reported citing sources in rescue services.

A private Turkish plane crashed on Sunday in western Iran, Iran's Press TV reported.

In a Sunday statement, Qassemi said a number of relief teams rushed to the site of the plane crash despite severe climate of the region for closely monitoring the situation and providing relief aid.

Iranian emergency management organisation spokesperson Mojtaba Khaledi said the plane hit a mountain and burst into flames.

Other Iranian media said the plane went down in a remote mountain in the snow-capped Zagros range during bad weather.

According to the Iranian News Agency Tasnim, a private passenger jet crashed near the city of Shahr-e Kord in the southwestern province of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari.

The plane took off around 4:41 p.m. (1311 GMT; 9:11 a.m. EST) on March 11 and reached a cruising altitude of just over 35,000 feet, according to FlightRadar24, a flight-tracking website.

Turkish news agency Dogan identified the plane as a Bombardier CL604, and the country's transport ministry said it belonged to a company named Basaran Holding. Officials at the airport did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The crash of the Turkish jet comes after an Iranian ATR-72, a twin-engine turboprop used for short-distance regional flying, crashed in southern Iran, killing all 65 people on board in February.
