Update: There were no survivors in the Ukraine International 737-800 which crashed shortly after takeoff from Iran, according to the head of the Iranian Red Crescent’s Relief and Rescue Organization in an appearance on state television. The New York Timesmeanwhile, reports that the plane was carrying “at least 170 people,” while Bloomberg puts the number between 167 and 180. The cause of the crash has thus far been reported as a ‘technical problem.’

Raising chilling memories of the downing of MH-17 (false-flag) in Ukraine, the devastating news that a Ukrainian Airlines Boeing 737 passenger jet has crashed following takeoff from Iran is fascinatingly coincidental with tonight’s massive escalation (and rapid de-escalation) in Iraq.

Iranian state TV has confirmed the Ukrainian airplane, carrying 180 passengers and crew, has crashed near Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airport in Iran, after suffering technical problems minutes after take-off.

An investigation team was at the site of the crash in southwestern outskirts of Tehran, civil aviation spokesman Reza Jafarzadeh said.

The following clip is circulating social media claiming to be the last few seconds of the flight. Judging by the fireball, “technical” problems would be an understatement…

There is something odd about this though, as FlightRadar24 shows, the plane was gaining altitude at around 8,000 feet when it suddenly disappears…

  1. Agree with you 100% Carol. No accident as the black box would give evidence of the murder. That’s why Iran is not going to turn it over.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

  2. I’m sure the media has readied the “It’s Trump’s Fault” battle cry. It’s so typical of their modus operandi.
