Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, has revealed that the country’s passenger airliner that crashed in Iran, killing all 176 passengers and crew on board, may have been downed by a Russian-made missile, known as the “Tor cruise or Tor M1 missile.”
DAILY POST reported that the plane, carrying mostly Iranians and Iranian-Canadians, crashed on Wednesday amid escalating tensions in Iran and Iraq.
Danilov said that a team of 45 Ukrainian experts has arrived in the Iranian capital to examine why the plane plunged from the sky minutes after takeoff from Imam Khomeini International Airport, Al Jazeera reports.
Trump said he had a terrible feeling about the tragedy but offered no evidence.
“Somebody could have made a mistake,” Trump told reporters, adding that he had suspicions about the crash but gave no other details.
