According to sources Justin Trudeau states that Iran plane crash is a result of an Iranian surface-to-air missile. Iranian officials reject the claim.
Recent reports regarding the Iran plane crash that killed all the 176 passengers claim that the plane was hit by an Iranian missile. Canadian President Justin Trudeau made a statement stating that some of its sources have shared intelligence including that of their allies and that claim the plane was hit by a surface-to-air missile and an investigation has been called on the same. Trudeau also said that it may be unintentional. The plane, Boeing 737-800 flight caught fire and crashed after six minutes of the trip from Tehran to Kyiv on Wednesday, 8th January 2020. It is said that 138 passengers were to catch a connecting flight to Canada while the plane already carried about 82 Iranians, 63 Canadians, 11 Ukrainians passengers and the crew on board. The victims who lost their lives in the crash included students and families.

The Iranian officials however have claimed that the reports of a missile hitting the plane are a lie. The spokesperson said that the psychological operation of the US government is adding to the grieve of the families hurting due to the incident.

The Ukraine Airline shot down my Iran is not a mistake.
It will stupid for anyone to say a flight which took off from Tehran & brought down by missile few minutes after take off is a Mistake.
This is not war. Its TERRORISM

Vigils to honour the lives of students killed in #IranPlaneCrash are being held right across Canada. They were among the best and brightest from Iran as well as many Canadians of Iranian descent. Imagine the contribution these young people would have made https://t.co/xJmTG8C1hp

Witches understand the terrible missile strike on the Ukrainian plane may have been unintended, but we wish the media & politicians would stop using the word “accident”. Accident implies this atrocity couldn’t have been avoided, & that’s obviously false. #IranPlaneCrash pic.twitter.com/QuUEmB7gCL

The next time some ignorant American tells me, as a Canadian, that I should mind my own business when it comes to their politics, I think it would only be prudent to remind them of #IranPlaneCrash that took 63 Canadian lives due to the actions and fallout of their "President".

Whether you say the #IranPlaneCrash was "caught in a crossfire" or "Iranian military incompetence" or "collateral damage" the fact remains that 170 innocent people are dead because Trump escalated violence in the region. There's no way around that.#TrumpsWarOfMassDistraction

So many students, undergrad and graduate; professors; and researchers from across Canada were killed in the #IranPlaneCrash. This is a painful moment for the entire Canadian academic community. People who died were the best: those who wanted to make a difference in the world.

I appreciated Trudeau's response to the #IranPlaneCrash. Calm, measured, making certain he has all facts before addressing the situation any further, but clearly troubled by the US response and the loss of lives, Canadian and otherwise.

The crash has escalated the ongoing tensions between the US and Iran and made things worse for International peace.
