U.S. officials are confident Iran shot down a Ukrainian jetliner in the hours after the Iranian missile attack on U.S. targets earlier this week, CBS News has learned. The Ukrainian International Airlines plane crashed Wednesday soon after takeoff from Tehran’s airport, killing all 176 people on board including 63 Canadians.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has threatened to apologize profusely to Iran for the Middle Eastern country killing 63 of its innocent citizens.
“We will not rest until we apologize for every single innocent person that Iran killed in this tragic incident,” Trudeau said. “Make no mistake, we want those bloodthirsty leaders of Iran’s regime to know: oops, we’re sorry.”
Iran’s Prime Minister Hassan Rouhani had tweeted that Iran shoots down innocent people in retaliation for military threats:
Trudeau acknowledged this by stating, “We are fully aware that Iran most likely killed these people intentionally and I want to make it clear to everyone that we are very sorry our civilians were in the way of your missiles, eh?”
