After days of denials that it was responsible, the government now said the disaster was the result of ‘human error caused by American adventurism.’
Iran has apologised its military “unintentionally” shot down a Ukrainian jetliner, killing all 176 on board.
The statement on Saturday morning blames “human error” for the incident, adding that the military mistook Flight 752 for a “hostile target”.
FANI KAYODE, REACTS:
“Iran admits it shot down Ukranian plane by mistake”-@CNN Finally the beasts have confessed. I ask again, where are the low-life’s on @Twitter that insulted me when I said the Iranians shot down the plane moments after it came down?Listen to the voice of the voiceless & learn!
“50 people died in a stampede during your hero’s burial. You shot down a passenger jet “by mistake” killing 176 innocent people & earned the hatred of the civilized world. Two earthquakes took place in your nation with loss of life. All in 24 hours! Is this not God’s judgement?
