    Iran admits it 'unintentionally' shot down Ukrainian passenger plane

    Iran said on Saturday its armed forces “unintentionally” shot down a Ukrainian passenger jet that crashed after taking off from Tehran, killing all 176 people aboard.

    Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was quick to shift blame to the US, tweeting “human error at time of crisis caused by US adventurism led to disaster,” echoing similar talking points of Democrats in the United States and of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that Trump's aggressive actions toward Iran ultimately caused the "human error" that resulted in the downing of the Ukrainian airliner.

    This comes after several days of claiming the United States was, according to Iranian spokesperson Ali Rabiei, “adding insult to the injury of the bereaved families and victimizing them for certain goals by propagating such fallacies,” and that “no one will assume responsibility for such a big lie once it is known that the claim had been fraudulent.”

    After the government admission became public, people began taking to the streets of Tehran to express their outrage, causing defenders of the regime to claim Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei was not informed that the Ukrainian passenger plane had been shot down until Friday evening.
