Iran admits its military ‘unintentionally’ shot down Ukrainian jet

OTTAWA—Iran announced Saturday that its military ‘unintentionally’ shot down a Ukrainian jetliner, killing all 176 aboard.

The statement came Saturday morning and blamed “human error” for the shootdown.

Iran had denied for several days that a missile downed the aircraft. But then the U.S. and Canada, citing intelligence, said they believe Iran shot down the aircraft.

A military statement carried by state media said the plane was mistaken for a “hostile target” after it turned toward a “sensitive military centre” of the Revolutionary Guard. The military was at its “highest level of readiness,” it said, amid the heightened tensions with the United States.

“In such a condition, because of human error and in a unintentional way, the flight was hit,” the statement said.

It apologized for the disaster and said it would upgrade its systems to prevent such “mistakes” in the future.

The statement also said those responsible for the strike on the plane would be prosecuted.

Earlier, a frustrated Foreign Affairs Minister François-Philippe Champagne said that, by Friday, Iran had issued just two visas to Canadian officials looking to fly to Tehran, short of the 12 needed to make their own assessment about the cause of the devastating crash.

Our PM is a chicken shit, he's only good at making fun of people behind their backs and coming up with calling people racists or bigots to counter their arguments. I have no faith in our government even trying anything against Iran. They will just sweep it under the rug like it never happened.

I think america is going to end up with another 20 year war to deal with.
