According to a member of Iran’s Majlis (parliament) a Qatari airliner pilot reported seeing Iran’s missiles shooting down Ukrainian airliner flight PS752 on January 8.
This comes after an audio file was leaked by Ukraine of an exchange between a control tower and the pilot of Aseman airlines flight 376.
During the exchange, the co-pilot reports the firing of two missiles and a huge explosion in the sky. Recognizing that the issue was related to flight PS752, the control tower tries to contact the airliner nine times, without getting a response.
The audio proves yet again that top Iranian officials, including the regime’s Supreme Leader and its President knew their forces had shot down flight PS752, despite vehemently denying it for three days.
Iranian officials still maintain that they did not know on January 8 that missiles brought down the plane, killing all 176 passengers and crew.
“In reports that were sent to the Majlis Civil Engineering Committee, a similar report to that of the published audio file (by Ukraine) was reported by a Qatari airliner,” Abolfazl Mousavi, a member of the Civil Engineering Committee told Jahan San’at daily today.
The daily said that the Qatari airliner was close to the area where flight PS752 was shot down.
The MP did not say when they had received the Qatari report.
On January 11, Amir Ali Haji Zadeh, the commander of the IRGC’s Aerospace Force said that he had informed officials on Wednesday January 8 that they had shot down the plane.
This is while from January 8 to January 10, numerous regime officials denied the shootdown and called it “rumors” spread by the “enemy” and dissidents.
Hassan Rezaifar, the chief investigator of Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization even went as far as demanding that Ukraine compensate for the damages caused by the crash.
After Ukraine published the audio file, Rezaiefar said that “Ukraine’s technical investigation team” published the “secret” audio file given to them by Iran, adding that the regime would no longer provide anymore material to Ukraine.
However, Ukrainian President Zelensky, in the interview with Ukrainian media, said Iran’s air traffic controllers did not provide the recording to Ukrainian investigators who traveled to Iran and that the file was obtained independently.
The Iranian regime continues to lie to the world and Iranians, refusing to hand over the plane’s black boxes to relevant authorities.
This has led to speculations that the shootdown was not “accidental” as the regime claims.
