Iran Info 24– The Islamic regime announced that its IRGC “unintentionally” shot down a Ukrainian jetliner, killing all 176 on board.

The Ukrainian Boeing 737 crashed just minutes after takeoff on Wednesday, January 8, 2020, killing all of 176 aboard, including dual-national citizens and elites.

“The plane was mistakenly shot down because of a human error,” says Head of National Security Commission at Islamic Consultative Assembly, Mojtaba Zonnour.

“According to investigations and reports by IRI’s General Staff of the Armed Forces, a human error caused the disastrous mistake,” affirmed the conservative cleric, Zonnour.

He rejected the alleged story of involving cyberwarfare carried out by the U.S., and possibly Israeli governments.
