During flight EP-840 form Tehran with 81 passengers and 8 crew, the flight crew repeatedly could not extend the right landing gear before landing at Ilaan and after a go-around the left gear could not be retracted, so the crew returned to Tehran. In the approach the right gear deployed normally and the aircraft made a safe landing. Two small rings in the hydraulic system were found to be the culprits.
