Video appears to show Ukrainian airliner being hit

Video sent to CNN appears to show a missile fired into the Tehran sky early Wednesday morning and striking an object in the sky. Around that time, a Ukranian airliner crashed shortly after takeoff. CNN cannot verify the authenticity of the video, but the buildings seen in it appears similar to ones that are in the Iranian capitol suburb of Parand. The Ukrainian plane crashed just north of the suburb.

The US increasingly believes that Iran mistakenly shot down a Ukrainian airliner on Tuesday, according to multiple US officials. The working theory is based on continuing analysis of data from satellites, radar and electronic data collected routinely by US military and intelligence.


    1. It’s really tragic. I hope she can live a great life in memory of her son. And I wonder if there’s any way for us to help. But these types of things can’t be undone. I hate the fact that passenger planes carrying large amounts of people are targets. All those lives lost so quickly; so vulnerable.

  1. What do they mean by β€œIran shot the plane down by mistake?” Did they think it was a US flight? Or did they mistake the plane to be a missile?

    1. @Jack Reese Its called closing airspace.

      If Iran was going to attack us, they were suppose to close down their own airspace, preventing planes in dangerous air.

      Wanna know their motive, buddy?

      To look strong in front of their brainwashed foolish blinded citizens to fight us.

      The people from 9/11 also were mostly iranians(leader was iranian as well), ordered to kamikaze the towers so no one would could trace it back to them.

      Government and high ranking military personal know this, but cannot accuse iran due to lack of evidence.

      The real leaders of iran arent foolish. They knew back then that they couldnt compete.

      Obama gave em legitimacy to rebuild nukes and are now an actual threat to destroy a decent size city.


      Just send a fucking H bomb to Tehran. Ive had enough of this.

    2. @Devin Poli we don’t send in the Buffs until we’ve cleared out all air defenses. Then we hit them with the big dogs.

    3. That flight was delayed an hour at the gate, so it took off an hour late. Supposedly the Iranian military had a list of all scheduled commercial flights to identify them, but because it was an hour off schedule they thought it was an American fighter plane/bomber attacking in retaliation for their missile strike.

      That doesn’t at all excuse them, but it IS a plausible circumstance for it happening. They were all keyed up and got trigger happy, and 176 people were killed because one of their officers got nervous.

    1. @weilian wang Great job making yourself look like a complete idiot. It was a passenger plane filled with innocent people and U.S. admitted that they fckd up. Try doing some research before posting another dumb comment. Clearly you are a right winger and a Trump supporter. .

    1. To get reelected, obviously. Putin is known for this. They make Americans believe it’s against their best interest to vote in a new President because the old one is more familiar with current matters.

    2. @JGirDesu People who don’t support trump now will never support him. People who support trump now will never stop supporting him. I don’t see your point, if Americans don’t like trump they aren’t going to vote for him just because he’s already been president once

  2. Trump: it was flying through a pretty rough neighborhood
    All of Iran:πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

    1. @Byush m Fair point. feel bad for the canadians. sad situation. worst part, the canadian government wont have the cuts to take some retalitory action.

  3. Iran: “trying to prove to countries they have what it takes”
    Also Iran: *Shoots down an Ukranian civilian aircraft in their jurisdiction*

    1. @John Doe It was still their own citizens. It’s disgusting that politics can play such a role in private lives like of that woman whose only son was killed. That’s unbelievable. I can’t even come close to imagining how she feels, but I feel a lot of sympathy for her.

    2. @Chris Ibrahim No, I guess not an Iranian aircraft but the craft was in Iranian jurisdiction.. meaning their responsibility.. the joke still stands.

      P.s. Evaluate your own comment before call someone a dummy.

    1. Iran has 50 people dead and 217 injured in a funeral stampede. Then it shoots down a passenger airplane
      killing 85 Iranians and 63 Canadians. Iran is not doing so well.

    2. @Sanuk Jang Lery Yeah, no kidding and I’m actually starting to kind of feel sorry for them.
      If America keeps messing with them maybe they will blow themselves up.

    3. @800lb Gorilla what am I looking up? The students from the university of western Ontario, university of Guelph, McMaster university, university of Ottawa the list goes on…

  4. Iran: We just possibly started a war with the world’s most powerful countries. What do we do now?
    Also Iran: *pisses off France, Canada, the UK, and Ukraine*

    1. Yoshi Dinono no iran killed an american thats what started this why are u ignoring an american contractor was murdered

    2. @Jack Mathis Canada and France actually have some of the strongest militaries in the world. According to Power Index, Canada has the 21st most power military in the world, while France has the 5th most powerful military in the world.

    3. Aljae russia and china together with iran could beat us but also would turn into a nuclear battle so they will most likely sit back

    1. They are dipshits and just proved it once again. Dang. How stupid can you be to wack your own jetliner? I can see the solider at the screen going “my Xbox has this button gray-out … let’s give it a try and see what happens.” Sad excuse for humans over there. Must have been playing with his sheep.

    1. YOU, TOO?!?! I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE WITH THAT! CNN say it was iran. The gov’t says it was iran. So it was canaduh!

  5. Iran: We are powerful. We can win a war. We will prove it if needed.
    Also Iran: *shoots down their own plane*

    1. SirStephen Also 50 die in a funeral stampede and they fire a bunch of rockets at US troops killing zero. Has not been a good week for them.

  6. “It’s was only a mistake guys nothing to see here”
    Imagine how would you feel if someone of those who died were family members. WTF
