Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made a strong statement regarding the Ukraine International Airline plane that crashed in Iran on Wednesday (PHL time).
KAMI learned that Trudeau said they have evidence that indicates an Iranian missile shot down the Ukranian plane.
In a report by the Associated Press, the Prime Minister said that Canada and its allies gathered intelligence regarding the plane crash.
“We have intelligence from multiple sources including our allies and our own intelligence. The evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile,” Trudeau said.
“This may well have been unintentional,” he added.
Trudeau called for a thorough investigation over the plane crash that killed about 176 people on board, including 63 Canadians.
As reported by Al Jazeera, Iran earlier dismissed the claim and called it “illogical rumors.”
"It is impossible that a missile hit the Ukrainian plane," Iran's head of civil aviation said.
In a previous report by KAMI, Iran launched more than a dozen missile attacks at the US forces based in Iraq.
Alert level 4 was raised by the Philippine embassy in Iran and it called for the mandatory repatriation of Filipinos in the Middle East.
