US, Canadian, & Iraqi Officials Say Iran Shot Down Ukrainian Airliner Accidentally with Surface to Air Missile

U.S. officials said today that it was “highly likely” that Iran mistakenly shot down the Ukranian airliner on Wednesday according to multiple U.S. Officials. 

The working theory is based on continuing analysis of data from satellites, radar and electronic data collected routinely by U.S. Military and intelligence.

President Trump said he didn’t believe the crash was due to mechanical failure but was more probable that a mistake was made on the other side.
European security officials told CNN they believe reports suggesting that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface to air missile in error credible.

The crash came just a few hours after Iran launched a ballistic missile attack against Iraqi military bases housing U.S. Troops.

It was not immediately clear how the U.S. and it’s allies would react to the downing of the airliner.  At least 63 Canadians and 11 Ukrainians were among the dead.
