Breaking: Ukrainian Plane Was Shot Down By Iranian Missiles, Here’s What We Know

(Liberty Bell) – The New York Times has obtained footage showing that the Boeing 737 passenger jet that crashed in Iran on Wednesday morning was hit by a surface-to-air missile shortly after the plane took off.

They reported:

Video verified by The New York Times appears to show an Iranian missile hitting a plane above Parand, near Tehran’s airport, the area where a Ukrainian airliner stopped transmitting its signal before it crashed on Wednesday.

A small explosion occurred when a missile hit the plane, but the plane did not explode, the video showed. The jet continued flying for several minutes and turned back toward the airport, The Times has determined. The plane flew toward the airport ablaze before it exploded and crashed quickly, other videos verified by The Times showed.

Visual and sonic clues in the footage matched flight path information and satellite imagery of the area near where the plane crashed. The satellite images were taken on Thursday and provided to The Times by Maxar Technologies, a space technology company. This helped to verify the video’s authenticity.

Video released Tuesday shows the moment the plane fell from the sky:

US officials believe that Iran could have shot down the passenger plane mistakenly after it had happened just hours after Iran fired missiles at two Iraqi bases where American troops were stationed.

Obviously, considering this is a nation that has been provoking western allies for months and has been pledging revenge for our elimination of their top general, Qassem Soleimani, the crash was instantly suspicious.

It didn’t help that Iran refused to hand over the aircraft’s black box data.

Images were then released purporting to show shrapnel damage on pieces of the aircraft.

No matter the cause, it’s important that the truth is revealed in order to understand the reason behind the death of the 176 victims including 82 Iranians, 63 Canadians, 11 Ukrainians, 10 Swedes, four Afghans, three Germans, and three British nationals.

  1. Yesterday they called us liars and today we found that they are the real liars. How will libs/socialists/democrats,lame street media defend them now>

    • You know the answer and the libtards/socialist/demonrats are already blaming our President for protecting USA. He did it better and quicker than either Clinton did (Ben Laden or Benghazi)!

  2. The WORLD should agree to fire cruise missiles at every site in Iran that has surface to air missiles. Make them impotent (Iran) so they can’t shoot down any aircraft at all.
    And if the rebuild the sites knock them out once again.
    This is a far better solution then trying to negotiate with a bunch of crazy bastards who will, if not stopped now, cause far greater loss of lives in the very near future.
    Obama made all of this possible by giving these crazy bastards 6 BILLION DOLLARS and releasing the frozen assets while he was in office. A GREAT PRESIDENT. HISTORY WILL TELL THE TALE OF A MAN WHO SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ELECTED PRESIDENT.

  3. It’s interesting to note, there were NO Americans on the plane. Trump said if any Americans were killed, he would retaliate. Coincidence?

  4. THAT VERY POSSIBLY BEEN WHAT THEY HAD IN MIND ,IF THEY DISCOVERED INTELLIGENCE OPERATIVES WITH CONDEMNING INFO AGAINST THE IRANIAN REGIME —BUT IT’S ALSO LIKELY SOME ROCKET LAUNCHING CO DIDN’T REALIZE IT WAS A COMMERCIAL AIRLINER –THIS GROUP STOLE POWER FROM THE FORMER REGIME DECADES AGO–AND THERE IS NO ZERO JUSTIFICATION FOR THE DEMOCRATIC LEADERS SENDING THEM OVER A BILLION DOLLARS AND THEY KNEW THE POSSIBILITY OF GIVING THAT MONEY WHICH WASN’T EVER (NEW IRANIAN REGIME)THEIRS AND WHO ARE NOW THE WORLDS LEADING SPONSOR OF TERRORISM AND MISUSE OF THESE FUNDS WAS ABSOLUTELY IMMINENT — HOW MANY AMERICAN BRAVE MEN AND WOMAN WERE KILLED OR WOUNDED , BECAUSE OF COWARDLY CARELESS ACTIONS OF THE DO NOTHING ELITIST DEMOCRATIC LEADERS — OUST THEM IN 2020 IF YOU WANT YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN TO HAVE ANY CHANCE OF LIFE AS IT SHOULD BE IN AMERICA TODAY

  5. I can hear the Iranians now as they try to “explain” how this airliner crashed killing everyone on board. The Iranian spokesman will say “…are you going to believe us or your lying eyes…”?

    • I think they are inept.have dated military hardware from Russia.and don’t have expertise to use accurately even 20 years ago.the airliner hit was accidental mistake.they where retaliating wildly the same way Iraqis did in 1st and 2nd Gulf Wars.they fire into the air wildly with triple a ,when there is a flock of birds flying over head.if shit hits fan they will waste what usable ordinance that they have relatively easy on in 1st exchanges.then they will be helpless under a well coordinated onslaught missile and air attacks their only salvation is if Russia gets involved.our biggest problem will be air traffic controller over their air space.thats just how good our workforces are.2nd to NOBODY.including russia

  6. Where is the international cry for accountability. You do not make a mistake like this without retribution. Weird there were no Americans unless Iran was making a statement without pissing President Trump off. But this should bring Putin and Canada’s prime minster along with Ukraine and Germany demanding justice. but maybe they do not value their citizens that high.

    • KEN_W, It’s not weird that there weren’t any Americans. The flight had just taken off out of Tehran before it was hit. There would be no Americans entering or leaving Iran on a civilian airliner, especially not leaving, and especially not so soon after Soleimani’s heated departure.

  7. The vile islamistNazi regime of mullahs are reedanee goftand- talking 💩💩💩💩
    US🇺🇸 & Iran have been & are at War now for 40 + years !
    #ThanksObama 😒
    Pos 0bama & pos Kerry 💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩

  8. The real question is who was on the plane that needed to be ended. These political elites play at a higher level than we think.

    • I have the same question per se. Why 60+ Canadians on board, leaving Iran, what were Canadians doing there in the 1st place? Why were 80+ Iranians leaving Iran? Let’s look at the complete passenger and crew list. Were several folks on board privy to, “too much intel”????? Conspiracy theories abound. The answers may never be known.
