Iran In Trouble As Western Leaders Accuse Them Of Shooting Down Ukraine's Plane

Western leaders


The Ukraine Plane Crash in Iran that killed 176 people on board was viewed as a collateral damage in the conflict between Iran and the United States.

The crash came just a few hours after Iran launched an attack against US military base in Iraq. 

four U.S. officials said The airliner could have been mistaken for a threat, i.e Iranians thinking that the plane was an attacK from the U.S, they shot it down.

Here is what the western leaders say about this:

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whose country lost at least 63 citizens in the downing, said in Toronto: "We have intelligence from multiple sources including our allies and our own intelligence. The evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile."

 U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said, "There is now a body of information that the flight was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile."

At the White House, President Donald Trump expressed he believed Iran was responsible for the shoot-down and Trump dismissed Iran's initial claim that there was a mechanical issue with the plane.

"Somebody could have made a mistake on the other side." Trump said,

the U.S. officials wouldn’t say what intelligence they had that pointed to an Iranian missile. But they acknowledged the existence of satellites and other sensors in the region, as well as the likelihood of communication interceptions and other similar intelligence.

The New York Times posted a video on Thursday, showing the moment the apparent missile struck the plane over Iran. The video shows a fast-moving object rising before a fiery explosion. An object, apparently on fire, then continues in a different direction.
