Iran finally admitted it accidentally shot down the Ukrainian jetliner.
After the collected evidences were all clear, the Iranina narrative turned to the truth in a dramatic reversal that triggered international condemnation and protests in the streets of Tehran.
Military from Iran mistaken the civil flight for a USA military target.
This mistake and the following government’s admission is a further blow for the country’s ruling clerics at a time when the economy has been devastated by U.S. sanctions.
At least 57 Canadians were among the 176 people killed in the downing of Ukrainian International Airlines Flight PS752.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said in a televised address that he
“wants a full admission of guilt by Iran for what authorities there called a – disastrous mistake.” – “Ukraine and Iran will work jointly to decode the black boxes of the doomed Ukrainian Boeing jet” – “The Ukrainian government will make payments to the families of each of those who died in the crash”.
Iran Admits Downing Jetliner, Sparking Global Anger and Protests
at a press briefing in Ottawa Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he was “outraged” and “furious.”
“What Iran hasadmitted to is very serious. Shooting down a civilian aircraft is horrific. Iran must take full responsibility” – “Even in a moment of heightened tension this should never have happened,” – “Canada will not rest until we get the accountability, justice, and closure that the families deserve.”
Trudeau and his British counterpart Boris Johnson earlier called for justice for the victims, and signaled that the disaster reinforced the need for a de-escalation of hostilities in the Gulf region.
