President of Iran:

Iranian foreign minister:

Tweet with link to Iranian state media:


A military statement carried by state media said the plane was mistaken for a “hostile target” after it turned toward a “sensitive military center” of the Revolutionary Guard. The military was at its “highest level of readiness,” it said, amid the heightened tensions with the United States.

“In such a condition, because of human error and in a unintentional way, the flight was hit,” the statement said. It apologized for the disaster and said it would upgrade its systems to prevent such “mistakes” in the future.

It also said those responsible for the strike on the plane would be prosecuted.

Well, that's just unfortunate. The US has already had problems with Iran, and the plane shootdown will make everything worse.

I live in a country which is relatively close to the Middle East (geographically speaking), and some of my school events have been cancelled because of the Iran conflict. Some students don't want to go to events because of it. (And it's probably not a good idea to take a plane into the airspace of a trigger-happy country.)

We all make mistakes, from small to big, but really how do you fire someone down by mistake?
