The flight took off Sunday from Sharjah in the UAE.

Rescuers were trying to reach the crash site but the terrain was mountainous making their approach hard. Officials said that the identification of the bodies will be possible after DNA test. Officials there did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Sharjah is a neighbouring emirate of Dubai.

Reports say the plane fell down near Shahr-e Kord, the capital city of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Province.

Turkey's private Dogan News Agency identified the plane as a Bombardier CL604, tail number TC-TRB.
