Britain now too supports the suspect that the Ukrainian International Airlines Flight 752 was shot down in Tehran along with United States and Canada in which all the 176 people on board were killed.
A video released and verified by the New York Times reveals the truth. It shows a fast-moving object was rising before the explosion.
British prime minister Boris Johnson said the collected information indicates Ukrainian jet was struck with an Iranian surface to air missile.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump cited satellite footage of the moment the surface to air missile hit and Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau said intelligence reveal Tehran was behind the Wednesday’s crash.
Canada lost more than sixty of its citizens in the crash.
Trudeau said, “We have intelligence from multiple sources including our allies and our own intelligence. The evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile.”
Just few hours before the crash Iran had launched a ballistic attack against US troops housed in Iraqi military bases. It was a response to the drone attack of Washington that killed Iranian Revolutionary Guard general Qasem Soleimani.
According to some US officials, the airliner could have been mistaken for threat from the US.
Australian prime minister Scott Morrison said the intelligence report does not suggest an intentional act.
Trump said he believes Tehran was responsible for the downing of the Ukrainian plane. He dismissed claim of Iran that mechanical issue caused the crash.
