Ukrainian Flight 752 shot down by Iran

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

On January 7, shortly after Iran bombed two bases in Iraq in retaliation for the US killing of their top general, Qasem Soleimani, a Ukrainian plane was shot down as it left the airport in Tehran. 176 people were killed.

The victims

The victims hailed from seven different nations: Iran 82, Canada 63, Ukraine 11, Sweden 10, Afghanistan 4, UK 3, Germany 3. Some were believed to have dual citizenship in Iran.

At first, it was thought that there was an engine failure in the Boeing 737 jet, but now it is believed that the plane was shot down by an Iran-owned Russian anti-ballistic missile.

Why was the plane in the air?

Questions immediately arise, such as why was there a plane in the air at all?

The FAA ordered all US planes to suspend all flights over Iran, Iraq, and the Persian Gulf. It is unknown why Iran did not also suspend flights out of Tehran.

The plane was only in flight for about two minutes and had achieved an altitude of almost 8,000 feet when it was struck by a Russian-made SA-15 surface-to-air missile shot from a manned and mobile Tor air-defense.

It is likely that Iran had their Tor air-defense vehicles manned and ready in anticipation of a US response to their rocket attacks in Iraq a couple of hours before.

At this time, it is believed that the strike on Flight 752 was a mistake.

Iran has denied that they shot the plane down.

This is a breaking news story.
