Iran has backtracked by admitting it "unintentionally" shot down a Ukranian airliner, hours after launching ballistic missiles at two US bases in Iraq to avenge the killing of its top military general Qassem Soleimani in an American airstrike.

Iranian authorities had spent much of last week claiming mechanical failure was behind the crash.

Iran shows that when it gets angry, it never fails to punch its own face.

They should pay compensation to the families of the victims, like the US did when they mistakenly shot down an Iranian civilian aircraft in the 80's

The Iranian Regime army can't even tell the difference between a commercial flight and that of a cruise missile and they want the world to allow them to have nuclear missles???

Well, if it comes down to a shooting match between US and Iran, I think my money would be on the US winning.
The world has moved on since 1979. Iran has not.

So they accidentally shot down a Ukrainian plane a few minutes after it took off?

So the Iranian military weren't aware there is an international airport a few miles away with the plane probably on a set flight path which has been used by previous airlines?

Of all the aircraft they could have shot down, they hit a Ukrainian jet.
Iran's ally Russia must have been very upset?

they have been lying for day's. . . 👹

at first they said it's been a technical fault on board the airplane.
secondly they said we haven't shot dawn the Ukraine airplane.

thirdly they accused the west of conspiracy then refused to hand back the black box for investigations .
Iranian leaders only care about a terrorist general sulimani and not the 63 Iranians who died in stampede or the 176 passengers (most of them Iranians ).

also iran still denying the targeting of oil tankers and aramko in the golf .

why should anybody in this world believe or trust the Iranian regime .

I think that’s why they’re angry. The only smart general they had, died and the rest are stupid. Killing their own citizen.
