One “Russian rocket” was not enough – US intelligence got connected to the spread of rumors of a plane crash in Iran

After the sensational throwing of a dubious photo with an element of the “Russian rocket” allegedly launched on the plane of Ukraine’s International Airlines in Tehran, the United States decided to increase the number of shells.

So, CNN, referring to a certain unnamed official close to US intelligence, said that the attack allegedly involved two ground-to-air missiles.

“The United States saw Iranian radar signals blocking on a jet plane before it was shot down”, – the report said. It is alleged that the relevant information was at the disposal of the US intelligence services in the morning on the day of the tragedy, but the verification of the information took about a day.

As News Front previously reported, UIA’s Boeing-737 aircraft crashed via Tehran-Kiev shortly after takeoff from the Imam Khomeini Airport in the Iranian capital. All 168 passengers and 9 crew members on board were killed. According to the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, the investigation will be carried out by “experts” responsible for accusing Russia of involvement in the crash of a Malaysian airliner in Donbass. There is also information that Washington set out to accuse Iran of crashing the liner, because the Kiev leadership will receive all the data directly from the CIA.
