Iran has announced the indefinite closure of its airspace over the Tehran region, effective immediately. 

The decision, communicated without a specified end date, comes amidst escalating regional tensions, although no official reason for the closure has been provided by Iranian authorities.

The closure is likely to impact numerous international and domestic flights, potentially causing significant disruptions at Tehran's Imam Khomeini International Airport and other regional airfields. Airlines are advised to reroute flights, and travelers should expect delays and changes to their travel plans.

This development raises concerns about the stability in the region and could be indicative of anticipated military activities or heightened security measures in the capital. The international community and neighboring countries are closely watching the situation, awaiting further details and implications of this airspace restriction.
