The New York Times has obtained video that appears to show an Iranian missile hitting the Boeing 737 jet that crashed shortly after takeoff in Tehran Wednesday, killing all 176 people on board. The crash came hours after Iran fired ballistic missiles at two Iraqi military bases, which house Iraqi and U.S. troops, in retaliation for General Soleimani’s assassination. This is Canadian Foreign Minister François-Philippe Champagne.
François-Philippe Champagne: “We have intelligence from multiple sources, including our allies’ and our own intelligence, that indicates that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile. This may well have been unintentional.”
Iranian officials have denied allegations they mistakenly shot down the passenger jet, which was en route to Kiev, Ukraine.
