Iran has denied on Thursday that Ukrainian plane crashed near Tehran was hit by a missile, Iranian government spokesman Ali Rabiei said in a statement, according to state TV.

“All of these reports are psychological warfare against Iran … all countries whose citizens are on board can send representatives, and we ask Boeing to send its representatives to the black box investigation process”.

“Ukrainian plane crashed outside Tehran was shot by Iran” – Trudeau

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday said his country had intelligence from various sources indicating that a Ukrainian plane crashed outside Tehran was mistakenly shot by Iran.

“We have intelligence from a variety of sources, including our own allies and intelligence. Evidence suggests that the plane was shot down by missiles from the surface into Iranian air”, Trudeau told reporters.

U.S. officials are confident Iran shot down a Ukrainian plane in the hours after the Iranian missile attack on U.S. targets earlier this week. The Ukrainian International Airlines plane crashed Wednesday soon after takeoff from Tehran’s airport, killing all 176 people on board.

U.S. intelligence picked up signals of a radar being turned on, sources told. They said U.S. satellites also detected two surface-to-air missile launches, which happened shortly before the plane exploded.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday also said that there was evidence that a Ukrainian plane crashed in Iran was accidentally hit by a missile from the ground.

In conclusions by the United States and Canada, Johnson called for a thorough investigation into the accident that killed all 176 aboard the plane, including four British citizens.

Now there is information that the plane was shot down by a missile from the surface into Iranian air. This may be unintentional, Johnson said in a statement.

“The United Kingdom continues to call on all parties to put an end to tensions in the region”.
